|This adventure really began in 1998
when Marcia and I took our first visit to
. We did not see enough in our 5 days there to satisfy
us soooooo we paid another visit to one of our favorite places.
For those of you who do not know about this
of our neighbor to the north let me show you by
where it is. I used a
"Doers and Dreamers Guide"
for N.S. to plan and book our trip. Below are pictures
and narratives of the places we visited. The background photo
is wild Lupins growing in Hall's Harbor. If you enjoy this then
perhaps you will visit or join us on our next adventure.
Links to the various location web sites are provided
for your enjoyment. Thanks from Buzz and Marcia
|Our first night was spent in the tiny
village of Peggy's Cove.
The lighthouse behind Marcia is in the right background
of the picture on the right, really it is there. Very foggy
that morning. The lighthouse is the village post office. Peggy's
Cove is a beautiful place and all visitors to N.S. need to stop by
and stand on the rocks by the ocean.
, a beautiful coastal town, was our next stop. The
east entrance by the bay is highlighted by the three churches on the
bay. We spent several hours there, then continued across the western
end of the province to Annapolis
. This village is one of, if not the oldest town
in Canada. The oldest wooden house and the oldest street are
to be found there. The photo on the right is a statue in the
Anne National Site
. The Annapolis River runs along side.
|In Annapolis Royal we stayed at the
, our room occupied a portion of the third floor,
and was a real treat. The owners were most gracious and if
you go there please drop by or better, stay with them. A small
antique shop named David's was a treat. The owner can be seen
in the photo on the right. It is a must to see while you are
|We agreed that the best dinner in
N.S. was in Annapolis Royal at the
Garrison House Inn
If you travel to this lovely village, dining there is a must.
A.R. features beautiful
and has a tidal power station which harnesses the tidal power of the Annapolis
River. Make sure to see these. The "Habitation" is also a must see.

|Day 3 saw us travel through the Annapolis
Valley to Kentville
with side trips to the coast road and to
(left). The Bay
is noted for its tides which are at times as much as 50 ft difference
between high and low. Several hours later there was no water in
the harbor. At Kentville we dined outside(as many did through
. As in all(but one) places there, the food was excellent.
This is Marcia sitting in the parlor
of The Blomidon Inn
. Our room included a
4 course dinner and breakfast.
While there we met and enjoyed the company of
and Nancy Austin of
Fort Lauderale, Florida
| After lunch in Kentville we traveled through
New Minas about 12 miles to
, a small college
town which sits on the edge of the
. Our accommodations there was the Blomidon Inn, a 4 star
establishment with an excellent dinning room.
