We are staying two nights with friends who have a summer house in southern Nova Scotia and live in Palm Coast, Florida in the winter. This morning, our hostess Marjorie made us a lovely breakfast in her beautiful, new kitchen.
Then, we were off for a Sunday drive along the coast. We stopped in a lot of cute shops. This area is fairly remote, so several towns have shops that have a lot of character, are chock-full of interesting goods, and also serve as bistros. This is one.
This shop is a bakery that attracts people from all around. Several craft shops surround the store.
This is another bakery that is famous for its sandwiches. It looks old-timey.
We also stopped at an art gallery. The two artists/owners greeted us, remembering Art, our host, from previous visits. The art is very vibrant, with mostly nautical scenes.
We stopped in an English pub-style restaurant for lunch. When in Rome…..we had mussels again. I just love them!
We drove through quaint fishing villages, with lobster cages stacked up against homeowners’ boats.
We stopped at a resort hotel/restaurant for dinner, but since it is Labor Day weekend, they were booked. We did enjoy drinks on their patio.
Then, on to a pub near our hosts’ house for dinner. We shared a platter of seared scallops – yummy! Sides were fries and a salad.
A great day exploring this section of Nova Scotia. I could really live here!
