Above and next two images below: The colorful Port of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia...

This tiny island in Yarmouth Harbor is actually a sea bird gathering place, with many nests atop tree stumps!

Just up the street from the port entrance ...

At the Port Terminal entrance: In support of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Western Branch, 16 artists have assembled and painted 11 of these houses, named in honor of Maud Lewis, a famous folk artist with roots in the province... Click here for more info on the "Maudified" House Project. All 11 houses are scattered at various sites around Yarmouth.

Just one of a large fleet of fishing boats moored in Yarmouth. Local seafood is as fresh as it gets!
