Google Gremlins Approve of Polly Cove

Not sure how or why it happens but every now and then I see that one of my photos gets magically transformed in cyberspace and lands itself discreetly back in the folder next to the original. I am sure there is a technically sound reason for this, it doesn't bother me, it just seems weird that the Google Gremlins clearly play with my Samsung Tab4 while I sleep. It always happens when I'm not looking.

This morning I have this beautiful photo to enjoy. Thank you Gremlins! I'll take any opportunity to breathe in Polly Cove again.

Notice the iron sculpture off in the distance toward the right?  It's perched atop a hill out on the Low Side. I hear conflicting stories of its origin so can't say with any certainty how or why it took up its watch there. What I do know is that it casts a distinct element of mysterious & spiritual energy to that spot, it is a beautiful thing. Up close it looks like this:

The Low Side is really beautiful. I didn't share much of it with you the other day because that crazy springy thing of mine demanded his own story, so here's a bit more Polly Cove eye candy to remind you what you're missing...

All these photos were taken on the same hike, notice how the sky changes from blue to grey. That's why they say here: "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes". In the course of less than 2 hours that Atlantic sky went from grey to blue and back to grey; by the time we left it was almost raining. And, because no Polly Cove post would be complete without at least one photo of the dogs I give you this...

  1. Love your Polly Tales. I'm sad to say that I've never hiked this lovely little bit... shocking given the amount of hiking I used to do. Maybe one day...

  2. My only adventure there ended with a fall on the ice and a sprained wrist, never even got close to the water. Must try again and find a easier path. But continue to post Polly Cove pictures to entice me.

  3. So gorgeous, makes me want to pack up and come north! And your dogs have it figured out, we pay good money for crab and they're getting it for free! Lol.

  4. Love these pics and that area. Back in the day I did a lot of hiking and I loved it. Your adventures are getting my feet itching.

  5. Beautiful scenery. Might have to come play some day.

  6. Love the black and white photo ...

  7. Last year I took my husband home to Nova Scotia for the first time. We took the slow route home into the valley via Peggy's Cove and environs. With regret, time was not on our side and Polly's Cove was skipped this go round. It was enchanting, and fun to watch him marvel at the vistas. The landscape in the area is so very dramatic. Your photos are wonderful.
