A Journey to Nova Scotia
Part 1 - Halifax
Nova Scotia’s capital is Halifax a city laid around the second largest harbor in the world. Cruise ships, naval bases, rail lines, oil refineries, and tourist attractions all share the waterfront which looks out onto Saint George's Island. Once a military base, the province now opens the island to daytrippers a few times a year and plans are under way to turn it into park space.
Part 2 - Hydrostone
A video excursion to Nova Scotia includes a visit to Hydrostone, a unique neighborhood that was destroyed by a ship explosion, then rebuilt and historically preserved.
Part 3 - Lunenburg
In the final part of the video series, we leave the charms of Halifax and head across the province through the Annapolis Valley, an agricultural region that produces, well, lots of produce. The first stop is the Tangled Garden for some fruit and herb based treats. There's also a visit to the Gaspereau Vineyards, and the Bay of Fundy for some lobster eating.
Accommodations were secured at the Bloomington Inn in downtown Wolfville. There was dinner and drinks at Stutz Vineyards and a ride around Mahone Bay. We shucked scallops in Lunenburg and spent our final evening at the White Point Beach Resort.
