Day 7 – Destination Nova Scotia

Today’s route has us ending up in Nova Scotia, we finally made it!!!  Our final destination is the Gagnon House B&B in Port Hawkesbury, NS.

The Bayview motel in Alma, New Brunswick was our lodging last night and this is where we started our day which would end in the small town of Port Hawkesbury on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.  This was one of the top motels that we have stayed at so far.

When we left Alma the Weather was rainy, but we were prepared with full rain gear.  We headed to Moncton, NB.  Along the way we stopped at  Hopewell Rocks, described hear on Wikipedia:

The Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpot Rocks, are rock formations caused by tidal erosion in The Hopewell Rocks Ocean Tidal Exploration Site in New Brunswick. They stand between 40-70 feet tall.

They are located on the shores of the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape near Moncton, New Brunswick. Due to the extreme tidal range of the Bay of Fundy, the base of the formations are covered in water twice a day. However, it is possible to view the formations from ground level at low tide.

Here are some photos of Hopewell Rocks.

We pasted into Nova Scotia around noon time, and headed up to the north central coast line of Nova Scotia.

We finally ate lunch at a restaurant outside of Pugwash called the Sandpiper.   This local restaurant had some delicious deserts the we partook of, ‘pie to die for’ blueberry cheesecake (made with local wild blueberries), and coconut cream pie made with real cream and not custard as our hostess explain, yum-yum

We took a scenic route along the Northumberland shore on route 245, up and around Cape George.

The small village of Ballantyne Cove, just South of Cape George.

The village wharf in Ballantyne.

Some lobster traps on the docks.

So far, Nova Scotia has some of the most beautiful scenery yet!
