We hooked up Joy (our Airstream) and our friends’ Taj (short for Taj Ma Haul) and took off for our month’s camping trip. Yay!
Our first stop was at a nice market where we bought some halibut and veg. We had lunch in the trailer in the parking lot. Next was a neat cheese shop – called the “The Damn Dutchman Cheese Shop”. Really cute with a lot of good cheese. We bought some Dragon’s Milk, their most famous — will let you know how it is when we eat it later.
On to the campground. We are almost as far west as you can go, one of the most remote spots in Nova Scotia.
We are just steps from the water. I will take photos later of the tide at its highest, and lowest. The tides here are the highest in the world. The campground was once an old shipyard.
DINNER: Mexican theme. We started with chips, salsa and margaritas out on the picnic table.
My turn to cook, and I made chimichangas. Here is the recipe…
