Easter Egg Hunt at Fort Anne

Today's post is another example of photographs can saying much more than I ever hope to convey in words. This was the day of the Easter Egg Hunt at Fort Anne in Annapolis Royal. While we have only had this event for a few years, it has quickly grown into a much anticipated local event. If you could harness the combined energy of the children who were waiting behind the barricade at the start of the event, I am sure that it would easily surpass the generation done by the local tidal generating station.

For me the highlight of the event is when the barricade is removed and the children race for the eggs. If you ever wondered what it would look like is a swarm of locust descended on Four Anne, this event will give you a fairly close approximation. Children where running this way and that while the parents were simply trying to keep up. Thankfully, the infield of the Fort tended to be a gathering spot so any parental separations were just temporary.

All the credit in the world should go to Paula Buxton of Leo's Cafe for creating this event and keeping it going. I am sure that Paula and her family have spent weeks helping the Easter Bunny fill eggs. This is a perfect event, in an ideal setting, for the youngest members of our community.

All for now,
