Postcard #5: Annapolis Royal
The years of history come alive here. Wars in Europe directly affected this land that changed hands numerous times over 400 years of European habitation.
What we saw today: remnants of French and British military occupation - a most lovely historical garden that had me wanting to move here just to work in it - a reconstruction of the first settlement in 1604 complete with interpreters wearing period costume.
Wild winds blew from a cloudy sky. No rain. In the garden the wind tossed the branches of oaks and maples. Sibilant whispers of leaves. Wafts of lilacs, purple, white, deep violet. Rhododendrons. I didn't want to leave.
