Wandering around the coastline of Nova Scotia about 30 miles south of Halifax, I came across this group of anchors all lined up on a little promontory at Shad Bay. This is a tiny fishing community which is one of many that make a lovely and interesting day trip from Halifax, with lots of time to stop and sample seafood, chat with the locals, many of whom are families that have been in the region for generations, and of course take lots of photos!

    Marvellous shot, George, and interesting write up. Quite the variety of anchor styles.

  • Thanks Mike..most of them are probably handmade by the nearest blacksmith or someone who could use a welder. I don’t think any two are exactly the same!
