    I’ve been on that Alexander Keith’s Brewery Tour! It *is* good beer! All these posts are really making me want to go back to Halifax soon (to my husband’s dismay…he’s more a fan of tropical vacations). The last time we were there I wasn’t a knitter yet so I missed out on all the incredible Nova Scotia yarn shops! Boo!

    Not sure if you’ve heard, but Porters Lake has been ravaged by a massive forest fire. The fire is out now and the firefighters did a great job saving all of the area’s homes but two, however much of the wilderness is charred. Here’s one of the first stories about the fire: http://thechronicleherald.ca/News/1062108.html

    Crazy, eh?

    I spent part of a summer, when I was eight, on my aunt’s farm near Truro. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been to Nova Scotia, but you’ve brought it back to the front of my mind. I still have vivid memories of the Bay of Fundy, although technically I didn’t see it either! (Has *anyone* actually seen the Bay? It’s always socked in with fog!)

    Thanks for posting the map—I could spend hours staring at maps, and I love that you highlighted yours with your route.

    Thanks for sharing! It was great to follow you around Nova Scotia!
    Canada would sure be happy to see you back! Maybe in Québec, next time? I’m sure you’d love the Eastern Townships – ok, that may be a bit opportunistic, as I’m moving there in a few weeks and would love to have the opportunity to meet you… but it truly is a lovely region, and I really think you’d like it! Actually, there are lots to see and enjoy all around the province, and hearing French spoken everywhere makes you feel like you are much farther from home than you really are… If ever you’d like to come up here, let me know: I’d be happy to help!

    I love reading about your travels, and your pictures are fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing your adventure with us!

    Oh! I so enjoyed the pictures of your trip! They are simply stunning. I sounds as though you had an amazing time!

    I really enjoyed the photos and description of your trip. I’ve told you this before but I am so envious of your rich couple time. (Having a baby a month before our first anniversary didn’t allow my husband and I time like this.) Having two young children has its own amazing adventures and rewards but traveling like you’ve described probably won’t happen for us for at least another decade. So thanks for letting me live vicariously through you. Also, I had never even considered going to Nova Scotia, but you’ve piqued my interest!

  8. Kelly

    wow you really covered alot huh! Your pictures are awesome, so glad you enjoyed our little part of the country. Next year PEI and NB???? :)

    i’m so super envious of this trip. i’ve wanted to visit Cape Breton for ages now but haven’t made it yet. looking at it all through your eyes/camera each day is a joy. thanks so much for sharing all the beauty and adventure of your trip. it just makes me want to go there all that much more!

    I am LOVIN’ your Nova Scotian adventures! It is such a gorgeous place and your pictures are amazing. I did a cruise of Nova Scotia and your posts have taken me right back there. Heavenly.

    I’m glad you got to see a whale! I always called the minke the slinky-minke because they do tend to “sneak” around a lot. Unpredictable and quick. And darn hard to photograph (although I have a few from back in the day).

    Lolly, I’ve really enjoyed this travelogue. It brought back so many memories of Nova Scotia for me! When we lived in the DC area, we drove our own car and took ferries there, twice, and one other time all the way to Newfoundland, which is a whole different pleasure. The people are lovely, and it was such a welcome break from the energetic buzz of inside-the-beltway.

    What a wonderful trip :)

  14. Nicole

    Yay, you made it to Meat Cove. It’s called that because it was known as a great place to hunt. Too bad the whales didn’t make an appearance for you there. It’s a prime whale watching spot.

    I’ve made loads of notes from your travels and will bring them with us when we leave next week. I’ll think of you when we’re there…

  15. Mary

    Wow, you really do make me want to go to Nova Scotia EVEN MORE NOW!!!!! It’s just too bad it’s waaaaaay on the other side of the coast for me. :(

    But like I’ve said before, if you ever come out to the west, if you like the coasts of Nova Scotia, Vancouver Island is even better! ;) Though I love the green fields there. Very Scotland/Ireland like. Cool!

    Thanks again for the photos and the write up!

  16. Suzanne

    Thanks for sharing. I have always wanted to go to Nova Scotia (and Newfoundland) but haven’t made it there yet.

  17. chelle

    I cannot express to you how much I have enjoyed your posts on Nova Scotia! I just moved here with my family (in the dead of winter no less!) six months ago and I am just starting to explore the beauty and adventure. Thank you for sharing your trip and all your gorgeous photography!

  18. k

    Just wanted to say that I am enjoying all your pics from your trip – I am on the complete opposite coast of the country, but I would love to make it to the maritimes at some point.

    You did a great job of capturing all the beauty with your images!

  19. tiennie

    I wish that I could travel as much as you! It’s so nice to see you travel and document it so well for us!

  20. Nic

    Lolly, thanks so much for sharing the trip with us – it felt just like taking a vacation yourself. It has certainly inspired me to bump Nova Scotia up to the top of the places to visit list.

  21. Jessica

    Lolly, your pictures have decided it: we must go to Canada! These are seriously some of the most gorgeous landscape photos I’ve ever seen. The green lushness of it makes me thirsty in the June heat, too! Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic trip with us! Now to find out if my Israeli BF needs a visa to go to Canada…. :)

  22. Holly

    What beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing your wonderful adventures and providing much inspiration!

  23. amanda

    Lolly, thank you for sharing your awesome trip report and photos. I’ve never considered Nova Scotia for vacation before, but this looks amazing. Mu husband and I are headed to Maine this summer, and it’s our first taste of the upper Northeast section of the US. You trip report reads like a guide book – maybe a new career path for you . . . ??

  24. Nichole D.

    I’ve really enjoyed reading about and seeing photos from your trip! I’d never really thought about Nova Scotia as one of those “must go someday” places, but it’s definitely on my list now. Thank you for sharing!

  25. Vickie

    I think that you and Chris should write travel books. You take the best pictures. You also give great details about the areas that you visit.

  26. Terri

    Wow – great photos! Takes me back to when I travelled there….thanks for sharing your travels….

  27. Dorothy

    Ah, the East Coast of Canada is an amazing place. Pity the Bay of Fundy was so foggy though. Your trip looks fantastic though and great fun. So glad you enjoyed your stay.

    May I suggest the lure of Newfoundland and the iceberg run during the spring for your next tour of Canada? My husband is from the Avalon Peninsula, he says it is commonplace to stand in his father’s living room and look out the living room window over the hill to see the top of an iceberg floating peacefully along.

    Awesome photos Lolly!

  29. Disentangled

    It has been so lovely to follow you trip through your photographs. It sounds like you two had an amazing time. Thank you so much for sharing your adventures!
