    Ocean side camping can be tough. I remember the first time I camped in California with my husband. (Neither of us grew up here, being true midwesterner’s we thought we were tough) well we had to get up in the middle of the night to move the truck as a wind block! Camping at the ocean in April was maybe a little too early.

    Your pictures are stunning as always & it just looks like a wonderful time!

    Beautiful photos, Lolly! Thanks for sharing your travels.. Hopefully I’ll get to visit NS in the next few years. I’d love to go camping like you and your hubby did. Did you have any problems with your luggage, taking your gear with you?

  3. Katarina

    It looks absolutely wonderful! I would love to go there someday. Lovely photos, too, you’re really an excellent photographer.

    What stunning scenery! And very refreshing to read about your trip on such a hot day.

    Wow, that is soo beautiful! I love your photos.
    I have a pair of sleeping bags that are opposites, you can zip them together and create one big bag, perfect for two to snuggle up in. I found that it’s a lot warmer than when you’re by yourself in the bag (I’ve camped in snow before, brr). Maybe something to check out, (which you may have done already), if you plan on more cold camping.

    So picturesque! Thanks for sharing your photos!

    Kris is too funny in that jumping photo. I’m so enjoying your travels, it really appears to be such a beautiful place. It’s great that you were able to spend so much time exploring the natural beauty of the place. I hope the Washington state beaches compare when you come to visit!

    Wow – what an environment!

  9. Sarah G

    Wow, I had never given a second thought about Nova Scotia before I saw your amazing photos. Now it has moved up my list of travel destinations! I looking forward to the rests of your posts!

    What an amazing trip. This is just gorgeous! I’m glad you had such a great time.

  11. Sarah HB

    You know, you are taking me on such a trip down memory lane that I am going to have to figure out a way to take my kids back that way in the future!

    Love Peggys Cove…oh yeah, I LOVE lighthouses too.

    Nice photos

  12. Catherine

    What an amazing campsite!!!

  13. knitography

    Nope, not a Canadian thing (I draw your attention to St John’s Nfld for example), just a Peggys Cove thing. Interestingly it used to be Peggy’s Cove, but I don’t know why they changed it. Someone out there must know though!

    Nice pictures!

  14. Jennifer

    Beautiful photos! I always love hearing about your travels!

  15. Josiane

    Your gorgeous pictures really do justice to the wonderful landscapes of Nova Scotia!

  16. AmyDe

    WOW! Lovely pictures yes, but actually being there – WOW and camping no less. Sounds incredible. I hope to travel to PEI in the next couple of years, but I don’t know that camping will be on the menu – I’m more of an “indoor gal.” I’ll fantasize through your experiences for a while if you don’t mind. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Julia

    Amazingly beautiful! I just love the pictures you’ve shared. :o )

  18. liz K.

    Our world is so beautiful, and you and Kris are determined to see all its most beautiful spots. Really breathtaking.

    thank you for sharing your wonderful trip…

  20. Iris (Beetsie)

    Thanks so much for sharing your Nova Scotia pics. They are wonderful – checked them all out on Flickr! We were there for our honeymoon decades ago, and you’ve convinced me it’s time to begin planning a return trip.

  21. Hege

    What a wonderful place to camp!
    We are going to buy the kids sleepingbags so we can start to
    sleep in the tent with them this summer :)

    Have a great weekend!

  22. stacey

    what an amazing place! Someplace I’d never really think about going, but your pictures pique my interest!

  23. jessica~

    Fantastic photos! Looks like a great trip!

  24. sarah

    Us Bluenosers (that’s Nova Scotians) have an expression about the variable weather: “If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.” … because it’s bound to change. ;)

    Glad to see you had such a great trip! Makes me miss home seeing your photos!

  25. Heather

    Lolly – I love the pictures of your trip. The Boy and I took a preview to see what we’ll be seeing in August. We signed up for a tour of the lighthouses in Halifax (I think), and I do believe your pictures helped get him a bit more (!) excited about our trip. Thanks for the preview!!


  26. KM

    Great NS pics! Glad to see you went to Cape Breton (I am half Cape Bretoner – half Newfoundlander….)…..

    Perhaps you’ll get to Newfoundland some day !

  27. Lynn

    Your pictures are just fabulous! I would so love to visit Nova Scotia. There is such beautiful country there. But, you live in one of my favorite places, Washington, DC. I get there as often as I can. Keep up the good work, I love reading your blog!

  28. KnittingKel

    You and Kris look like ya’ll had a lot of fun on your trip. The pictures are beautiful. It really makes me want to visit Nova Scotia.

  29. Heather

    What a great northern vacation!

  30. Mome-rath

    Ah! Lovely! Can’t wait to read more!

  31. Elysbeth

    Wow! Makes me want to go hiking.

    Glad you had fun.

  32. courtney

    Lolly, this looks amazing!!!! I can’t wait to see more, keep ‘em coming!

    Re: the lack of apostrophes. On maps, apostrophe’s can easily be mistaken for a dot (indicating an island or a town), so we’ve just eliminated all apostrophes from place names. Strange, maybe, but practical.

    Lolly, Thanks for the pictures from the Ovens! It really took me back to a camping trip that my husband and I took some 15-20 years ago. We stopped in Lunenburg for a music festival where we saw a, then quite young Natalie McMasters (a brilliant Cape Breton fiddler). We then camped in that very spot…and if not that spot, something awfully close! We’ve been to Nova Scotia twice and loved every minute of it!

  35. Leslie

    I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to camp in such cold conditions, but the setting is truly lovely. All your photos are beautiful and provide a great “tour” of your vacation. Stay warm and have fun!

  36. Hillary

    Those pictures are gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing your vacation.

  37. Lolly Knitting Around » Cowls in Canada

    [...] I finished the first cowl a few days into our trip. I used two yarns that have lived in the stash for so long that I don’t remember when I get them! This cowl is called the “Keji” Cowl, because I finished it right before we explored the Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct. [...]

  38. Leslie

    God I love our east coast and you have captured it’s beauty in these photos. I’m jealous…I want to go back east again…you must get yeeself to Newfoundland for some wonderful rugged sights as well. Halifax…the most cosmopolitan small town city I’ve ever been too, love it.

  39. Vicki

    This is going to sound weird perhaps. I was looking for photos of the Keji Adjunct to put on my website because I wrote a young adult mystery which is set there. (It’s called Not Suitable for Family Viewing.) I consequently stumbled across your cowl photo and because I’m a knitter too, I landed on your web site. Lots of glowing reviews of Keji (and of course, you’re glorious photos) so I though “what the heck? Maybe I’ll just mention that we’re selling a piece of beachfront land just down the road from the park…” Just in case you’re interested. It’s very beautiful, white sand, turquoise waters…
