Bay Watch…

Two years ago, we took a train trip to Nova Scotia, a Canadian province that is wild and rugged in its beauty. It’s a water province, squatting at the Atlantic Ocean and riddled with lakes and bays, coves and harbors. I can’t wait to go again.

One of the places we visited was Mahone Bay, which is part of the Lighthouse Route on Nova Scotia’s South Shore.  It lazes between Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg, two tourista must-sees.

Mahone Bay — picturesque, historic, population under 1,000. Town motto — Unio Silvae Marisque, meaning a union of forest and sea. I like that. 

One of Mahone Bay’s little secret treasures is The Biscuit Eater — Booktrader & Cafe. We refreshed ourselves, had a good browse, and I found something to read on the train trip back to my little piece of Canadaland.

I thought you might enjoy these pics taken by Mr. G, honey.

  1. My Dad’s family had (has?) a small place up in Ingonish. I’ve never been there (it’s just so darn far from California) but my grandfather painted some wonderful pictures of the place.


  2. Ah. Cape Breton Island. We could not fit it into our last trip, which is one of the many reasons we have to visit again. Yeah. That would be a bit of a hike for you, Gina. 🙂
