Beautiful landscape and history Ann, love the colours and all the texture in the foreground. Nicely captured.

Thank you Debra. The Valley is an amazing place to visit.

The Acadian dikes on the New Brunswick side have mostly been left alone to go back to nature, but at places, if you know where to look, you can still see remnants of them.

Interesting Jane.

Description
In the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, around Wolfville and Grand Pre there are 3013 acres below sea level behind 28,455 feet of dyke maintained by the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture. This reclaimed fertile land was originally saved from the tides of Fundy by the early Acadian settlers in the 1700's and used to grow food for themselves and their animals. This was the origin of the abundant bounty now provided by the Annapolis Valley that is shipped to all parts of Canada.
