Since it’s a snowy and cold day here in Calgary I decided it was a good day to blog about our recent, colourful holiday in the Maritimes.  It’s a trip both my husband and I had wanted to do for awhile.  I had been there as a child (and my husband was there about 40 years ago) but we were both long overdue for a visit.  We managed to see both Nova Scotia and PEI on this trip, but we’d love to go back again and spend more time in exploring this side of Canada.  We planned the trip for October as I wanted to be there with the changing colours.   What I wasn’t aware of prior to our trip is how colourful the homes would be in the Maritimes.  I was in awe of how charming the homes are and couldn’t take enough pictures.

While Peggy’s Cove is celebrated for it’s famous lighthouse, the picturesque fishing village with it’s colourful homes was also something to see.  Unfortunately the day we were out there was a bit gloomy so the colour on the houses isn’t as vibrant as it would be on a sunny day.

 Once we decided we were going to visit the Maritimes I had started doing some research on Nova Scotia and Lunenburg definitely moved to the top of the list of places to visit.  This town has some very colourful buildings and with good reason is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The architecture of this next home is beautiful (wouldn’t it also be a great home to decorate for Halloween- especially with the tree branches hanging over the top).

After Nova Scotia we took a quick trip over to PEI.  I wish we had been able to spend more time there but hopefully we’ll be able to go back some time in the future.  Our first stop on PEI was another charming, sea coast fishing village called Victoria by the Sea.

The next home, while it may not be the most colourful, I’m sure it’s the most photographed house on PEI.  When we went through the house we were surprised at how spacious it felt considering how small it looked from the outside.
