Field Trip 2, Sunday, October 19, 2014

Here is the take on the blueberry field trip scheduled for Oct 19th. 2014.

Plan AWe will be visiting fields in the Yorke Settlement, Woods Mt. as well as in the Fox River area in the morning, we meet at the one and only Tim Horton’s in Parrsboro at 8:00 am we leave at 8:10 sharp. (If someone plans on having a coffee at Tims; arrive there much earlier than 8:00.  I need the 15 minutes to gather people together and sign the waiver forms.   Between 11:30 am and 12:00 pm we will stop for lunch at the Glooscap Restaurant in Parrsboro, NS.

Around 1:00 pm. we will be visiting fields in the New Canaan Mt.  Gilbert Mt. areas.

Plan B:  If the area has been drenched by recent rains and the vast majority of the fields are without leaves we will make this trip a “seascapes adventure” trip.   Not to worry, we will not be walking long distances on the beaches. Short and manageable treks from your cars.  We will be visiting points of interest along the route from Parrsboro to West Advocate NS.

All attendees are required to sign waiver forms from the “Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia” as well as waiver forms from “Clarence Nowlan Atlantic Photography”.

If you are planning to come, please send me an e-mail stating so, at:

This blueberry field trip is for two photo clubs to meet and exchange ideas and friendships pertaining to photography.  Some members of the Focus Camera Club from Moncton will be joining members of the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia for this venture.

The field trip ends at 4:00 pm.  But if you feel you are too tired and have travelled enough you may leave anytime; just let me know in advance.   For the young spring chickens out there, you can stay with me if you want.  I will be leaving just after sunset or an hr after sunset depending on whether we have and afterglow or not.

PS Please dress warmly and bring rubber boots.  The fields may have lots of dew on the blueberry leaves in the morning.

I will answer all e-mails on the 17th. of October.

Have a great day and enjoy the moment.
