365 Canadian Sights | Day 317: Wonderland sculpture

Less than 10-years-old, this modern sculpture quickly became a highlight of Calgary’s public art collection. The giant wire mesh head treads a difficult line, in my opinion. Objectively it looks cool, so for people who aren’t artsy it’s easy to look at and get something from, even if it’s only a brief “Neat!” It’s also,… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 317: Wonderland sculpture

365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove

The Maritime’s roots in fishing and the ocean have been kept alive in this little community. Restored in the min-90s to a traditional (but cared for) state, Fisherman’s Cove is a little piece of Halifax’s heritage, with a boardwalk, docks and shops hanging on to the rocks and ever-changing tide. The structures on pilings and… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove

365 Canadian Sights | Day 310: St. George’s (Round) Church

Built to be a stand out in Halifax back when it was a smaller town, this church has a royal heritage. Its precise design history is unknown, but it’s related to Prince Edward (Queen Victoria’s father).

365 Canadian Sights | Day 308: Zavikon and the Thousand Islands

Really this is for the Thousand Islands, but it’s hard to choose just one. So I chose the attractive and famous Zavikon. The whole area is populated with…well, lots of islands. Many have some sort of structure on them. Some are mundane, some are amazing and some are in the U.S. Zavikon is…in Canada. Both… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 308: Zavikon and the Thousand Islands

365 Canadian Sights | Day 307: Ruins Week – Brittania Shipyard

Ok, calling all of these ‘ruins’ might be a bit unfair, but still, some are not anything like what they used to be. Ok, so dilapidated isn’t quite a ruin, but this old shipbuilding facility sure has seen better days. Though, when you head inside, it looks fairly nice. The structure has been turned into… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 307: Ruins Week – Brittania Shipyard

365 Canadian Sights | Day 300: Caves Week – Warsaw Caves

You might be seeing a pattern now, with another cave system in southern Ontario. That’s just the way the geology formed, with ideal conditions on Vancouver Island and southern Ontario. Like most other caves on this list, limestone is essential to it’s creation. What’s a little different here is that it’s collapsed to a certain… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 300: Caves Week – Warsaw Caves
