Hi everyone!

So, I’m sure some introductions are in order for this post. My name is Pauline, and Aimee and Amy have been gracious enough to allow me to post here to I am fairly new to the Haven fandom, having been peer pressured into it 100% by Aimee. 😉 She came to visit me for Comic Con last year, and we ended up interviewing several of the Haven crew, and I was introduced to the show. While initially skeptical, enough coincidences led me to dive into the show (including me finding out that not only were composer Shawn Pierce and I born in the same small town in Canada, but he went to school with my brother).

Last year I was fortunate enough to have business take me to Halifax, and I explored the South Shore of Nova Scotia, falling in love with the place, ensuring I would return again for a vacation.

Which, leads me to August 2015 when I found myself back in Nova Scotia for 10 days.

Since my last trip, I absolutely fell even more in love with Haven, and participated as much as I could in the fandom. So, with a return trip to Nova Scotia, I wanted to make sure I did something Haven-related while I was there.

And then, an idea presented itself.

I happened to read an article about a girl who snuck onto the Orange is the New Black set and took pictures of screencaps held up to the real locations, and I thought, I can do that! I know where most of the places of Haven are!

So, the #SaveHaven #photoproject was born.

Over the course of a couple of weeks, I went through each episode of Haven, and pulled various screencaps, all the while figuring out where the locations were that were depicted. Some were obvious to me from my previous trip, but others proved to be difficult. Aimee and Amy jumped in, and we were able to find almost all of the locations I wanted.

Then, armed with over 100 photographs, I headed out to Nova Scotia to start my photo project, praying I could make it work.

The first few images I tried to take immediately proved to me how difficult this project was going to be, and I couldn’t get them to work. But then I got one with Nathan in front of the gazebo to work. So, I tentatively posted it on Twitter, and tons of you responded to it! It was completely encouraging, so I trudged on throughout the week, finding each location, standing there holding out a photo as I tried to line it up, furiously ignoring the stares of people walking by.

I roamed all through the South Shore, from Chester, through Hubbards, and Northwest Cove to Lunenburg. At times I found myself standing in people’s backyards and running when I heard their dog discover me, to asking the Visitor’s Center in Lunenburg when low tide was so I could walk out to take pictures at Audrey’s dock.

Some pictures didn’t work, but ultimately, a lot did, and I’m really excited to share them here with you. Go through them, and let me know what you think!

And thank you to all who followed my project on Twitter and Instagram while I was doing it. Your favorites, retweets and sweet words really kept me going.

I hope you all enjoy!

    What can I say…the shot of the Kiwi Cafe (where the cast and crew often hung out) has to be my favourite. Lynda is a friend of mine and, yes, I used to live in Chester and my brother still does (Pig Loop Rd right across from the curling rink), my sister and bil have a home on the Peninsula and my mum now has my place, right in the little triangle where Duke and Water Sts. come together (across from the little park at the head of the Front Harbour….Thanks for all of these. I have always had to watch every episode twice; once to see all the places I know and the second to actually follow the story. Oh, and the rope hanging chair in Audrey’s apartment??? Mine…..

    Outstanding! My wife and I visited Chester and Lunenburg two summers ago while taking a traveling vacation throughout Nova Scotia. Being Haven fans we tried spotting locations from the show by memory. Our biggest regret from our trip was that we missed The Grey Gull. I can’t imagine the effort this project took but the results are fantastic!

  4. Avatar Karen says:

    What a cool idea! Well done! My friends and i came last summer to Chester and surrounding area to check out the Haven shooting locations. We were fortunate enough to see many of the sites. Got to meet some of the cast and crew! What a great bunch of people!!So sad that the show is finishing but i am sure the cast will be off on new adventures! Cheers!
    PS The home town folks were wonderful too!!

    Hi – I appreciate you publishing these. One day I’d like to visit these places. I’ve found a few and bookmarked with Google Maps – but I was wondering if you would be willing to publish any street addresses for the public locations? I stress public because I am sure you would not want to put out the addresses of private homes – but any shops, storefronts or publically accessible locations I would love to see. Thanks again for the photos!

    • Avatar Aimee J. says:

      Hi James, I wish I had that information to share. It’s not something I’ve ever compiled. If you reach out to the fandom online (twitter’s probably your best bet), pretty sure some folks there can help you. I believe that’s how a lot of places were found by other Havenites who have been here. Good luck!

    • Avatar Sybil says:

      James, a lot of these locations are in Chester, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. i.e. the Haven P.D. is in fact the Lunenburg Town Hall.

  6. Avatar Sybil says:

    Oh I really enjoyed looking at these images. Boy what a lot of work. If you ever decide to do more pics from season 5b I could point out a lot of locations. The final episodes featured, Eastern Passage, Boondocks (Fisherman’s Cove) and of course the Dingle Tower on the Northwest Arm in Halifax (standing in for the new “barn”)

    • Avatar Lisa says:

      Sybil- I am planning a trip to Lunenburg and surrounding area next year. I would love to know any Haven sights you could lead me to. Love the show and the beauty of this area.
