Greetings from Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, where we finally found decent internet connection. Here is a taste of what we’ve been up to the last few days:
Tonight we’re camping right on the Bay of Fundy – yes, the tides really are amazing. See also sea kayaking (Day 7) in the Bay of Fundy.
Tidal Generating Station – naturally a favorite on this trip.
Lunch in Lunenburg and camping in Keji National Forest
Leaving Cape Breton for Halifax
St. Peters Canal
Random observations on Nova Scotia:
-Nova Scotia loves canals, locks, and swinging bridges (bridges that rotate out of the way for boat passage)
– In Nova Scotia, you can apparently buy something from McDonalds called the “McLobster.” I say “you,” because I will be buying no such thing.
-The roads here are terrible. The choices are: superslab (aka interstate/highway), very bumpy or broken pavement, construction, or gravel. The one exception is of course the Cabot Trail.
-But the people are all very nice, and the public bathrooms are all noticeably clean. Seriously, all the bathrooms in Canada, especially in the National and Provincial Parks, have been remarkably nice.
