While on a weeklong road trip last month in Nova Scotia we spent a good portion of our time exploring the back roads and small off-the-beaten-path villages. One of the charming communities we discovered on the Fundy coast was a place called Margaretsville.
With a population of 212 we found that Margaretsville has a thriving artistic community including a locally-owned and operated artist gallery/store.
It was late afternoon when we pulled up to the seaside shack with the brightly painted door. The lady in charge was standing outside putting the key in the door. She told us she was closing up for a bit to run some errands.
Then she leaned in close as if she had a secret to share and offered to stay open a bit longer for us if we thought we were interested in going in to take a look around. With a generous offer like that we almost felt obliged to take a peek, and as we walked out of the gallery twenty minutes later we felt a bit guilty about not actually buying anything.
After she locked up and headed off to tend to her errands we hung around by the seashore for another half hour or so to soak in the sun and the wind, and admire the wonderful scenery.
Though we didn’t leave Margaretsville with any original local art, I did capture a few doors down by the water including this weathered shed:
And this shot which I call my door Trifecta 🙂
As always, thank you for looking 🙂
