Nova Scotia

I recently traveled to Nova Scotia.  I can't find anything bad to say about the area.  Its beautiful, clean and everyone I met was so very nice.  I was surprised to learn that the Titanic victims are buried there.   I was able to visit the grave of Joseph Dawson whom the movie was made.  I put several short clips from our guide about them on my website.  It was so very interesting.

Food there is wonderful.  I had some of the best meals of my life and some of the best small towns.  I can hardly wait to return one day.  If you ask for tea with dinner be sure to specify if you want Iced Tea or Tea.  If you just say tea you will get a cup of hot tea.   And yes for yall southern folks there is sugar in it.  I found the tea to be very refreshing.

We also stopped at the preserve company and they will ship home.  Some of the best stuff I have tasted.  I never had Curd before but it's really good on some foods.  I like the ginger lemon on asparagus. The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company will also ship to the states.

I also learned that you don't refer to the island as Prince Edward.  You say PEI.

Prices are higher there.  A Big Mac from McDonalds cost quite a bit more than what I am used to.  Some hotels there will do the money exchange for you if you don't get it at the bank before you go.

Cabot Trail- This was the best area to me.  I stayed at Beddeck at the Lynnwood Inn.  You can go to the waterfront and take a pirate ship for a ride and the sun rise is beautiful there.   Cabot trail has so much diversity.

Whale watching-  Well I was a bit disappointed with this.  The whales are small and looked more like dolphins to me.  We had an oceanographer on our trip and he gave good talk to our dinner table. 

I also liked Halifax. Its a bigger city and lots to do.  I would like to have stayed another day there or had more free time to visit.

Since there was so much to see and do you better just check out the website for photos.
