Fogged In

Crescent Beach

Crescent Beach, Lockeport, Nova Scotia

There is a saying here and also on Nantucket Island:  FOG HAPPENS.  And that about sums up today.  We took advantage of the Fog to drive to Lockeport, located on the other side of Jordan Bay.  We had lunch in a local restaurant, The White Gull. I say restaurant, but it’s more like an institution.  While Gull is located on the harbor and directly next to the warehouse that accepts and processes the local catch.  It’s the first place we visited back in 1999 when we came to find our cottage.  I’ll just post a few pics and you will understand.

After lunch we walked around town and to my favorite place, The Town Market.

At Crescent Beach I met a lady with a large pot.  She walked down to the surf and filled her pot with sea water.  She was making clams and planned to use the water to steam them.
