Blueberry Field Trip: Sunday, Oct 19 ,2014

Plan AWe will be visiting fields in the Yorke Settlement, Woods Mt. as well as in the Fox River area in the morning.  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 to Clarence stating so, at: All e-mails will be answered by Clarence on the 17th. of October.
Directions to Clarence`s place: Coming from the Moncton and surrounding areas: At the Dieppe corner (where the “Ultramar Service Station  and the Dieppe City Hall are located) take Amirault St. going towards Memramcook. (if your are coming from Moncton on Champlain St. you would take a right turn at the corner.)  Stay on that road until you get to an Esso service station and turn right onto Dover Rd. Keep on that road until you get at the corner of “Chemin Petit /Little Dover Rd. on your left; as you make a right onto it, I live right on the corner.  There is a huge white pine to your left as you enter my driveway. Civic no. 660.

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 the area 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.
