The north-eastern end of the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, where the valley meets the waters of Minas Basin, an arm of The Bay of Fundy. Taken July 3, 2007, with a Sony DSCF828 camera. at a look-off point near the village of Canning. The Valley is renowned for it’s fruit orchards, especially apples, as well as all sorts of vegetable crops. It stretches in a north-east/south-west direction along the Bay of Fundy coast, in between two ranges of hills (North and South Mountains) which give it protection from wind and storms. It was the site of the earliest settlements in North America, dating back to Samuel de Champlain’s colonies around 1608. For awhile,back in the late 50’s, it was my home.
