Chezzetcook Inlet

Chezzetcook Inlet is a shallow bay situated on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. Once known for a large clam fishery, its salt marshes and sandy mud flats provide food and shelter for many sea birds. It is common to see bald eagles, great blue herons, cormorants and of course, the Canada goose. In the spring, the arrival of the geese heralds warmer weather and in the fall their departure is a bittersweet sign of the coming cold. Inspired by the colours of the inlet, flocks of “geese” migrate over my hat in their characteristic “V” formation
