Crystal Crescent Memories

While going through old photos for a post over at Mud Puddles I felt like I was going through a bit of a time warp. We discovered Crystal Crescent Beach during our first month in Nova Scotia and over the next five years returned countless times during all seasons - fall and winter being our favorite time of year to be there.

It made me think about how I don't make photo albums anymore. It is so much easier to have the photos on the computer and not take up shelf space with an album (or have the expense of printing). That being said, my girl loves to look at the few photo albums we do have and I would love to have something easy for her to pick up and look though old photos. A compromise is certainly in order. Maybe something digital is the answer?

I gathered quite a few that I did not end up using in the post. Here are the ones that did not make the cut... although I still love them!

Not a bad little spot! Eh?


  1. Beautiful spot. One day I will head east and visit :)

  2. A really lovely place! I can smell the salt water. In italian they call it lo iodio. Literally it means iodine, but they all say it the moment you get within smells reach of the beach. Lo iodio fa bene. :)

    1. It is an amazing place. It was almost an hour drive but we could not help heading back there over and over! So pretty!

  4. Oh my word. This is so beautiful! Did I ever tell you our little family growing up drove to Nova Scotia as our one and only vacation we ever had? We piled in the back our my dad's truck and drove for two weeks all over Nova Scotia as my dad, the photographer, took over 4000 images:) It is one of my most treasured memories of childhood and these photos took me right back. I want to take my boys there one day. XO
