Our travels took us south from our campground in Glen Margaret south, around Margaret’s Bay. Staying on the Coastal Heritage Trail, our route ran close to the shore past scenic harbors
and parks where we could stop and walk along beaches with surprisingly fine sand.
As we approached Mahone Bay we were greeted by the first of scores of scarecrows decorating commercial businesses and residential homes, alike … part of the town’s annual Scarecrow Festival.
However, Mahone Bay is best known for its “three churches”
one of the most photographed subjects in Canada.
From there we drove to the fishing village of Lunenburg, a town of brightly-painted Victorian and other homes and buildings in it historic commercial district.
Unfortunately, since I’ve come down with a cold and was feeling rotten we headed back to our campground earlier than planned.
