Recycled Copper Wire & Beach Glass - Mermaids Memories Suncatchers

 Mermaids Memories Beach Glass Suncatchers

Mermaids Memories Beach Glass Suncatchers are wrapped with recycled copper wire, creating a unique piece abstract art.  These suncatchers are handmade using the found treasures of Beach Glass, Fire Glass & Nova Scotia Stones found along the shores of beautiful Baie Ste Marie. Each one is different.

Moulin de Bangor - Bangor Sawmill

Moulin de Bangor - Bangor Sawmill 
La Butte. Clare, NS.

The Bangor Sawmill Museum is a restored 19th-century water-powered turbine lumber sawmill on the Meteghan River. A major industry in this region's past and a reminder of the time when hundreds of such mills were seen along the many rivers of western Nova Scotia.

After the big rain washed out the dam. The level of water is low, since half the dam is gone.

Old Barn

I have passed this old barn for the last 12 years, even been inside for a barn/yard sale once. It is in pretty rough shape. Not safe to go inside now. I decided to take some pictures before this old building, a piece of our history, comes crashing down some night in the wind.

You can see how the old beams were notched and put together. In some places there are still nails on the outside walls but no shingles.
