We're back...

So it's now just about a week since we have returned from Nova Scotia. The dogs are back home again, work has started and Taylor has registered for his first year in High School. How does time go by so fast?

We had a fantastic trip to Nova Scotia, I love our cottage! We took in lots of day trips, had friends over for dinners and had some great time spent with family. It was a perfect balance of planned and unplanned events.

I have not yet gotten through all of our pictures, but have started a gallery on SmugMug, feel free to check it out, I will continue to get our pictures up there.

I can't wait to share some of the Tidal Bore Rafting pictures, we had such a great day of play with the River Runners. Anyone wanting an adrenaline rush should try it some time!

From the tidal bore rafting we headed to Pictou so we could catch the ferry the next day for PEI. We had a quick day and a bit enjoying PEI before we took the confederation bridge back to the "mainland" for a full day of driving Nova Scotia's Glooscap Trail, on the Northern side of the Bay of Fundy. I have never been to this part of Nova Scotia and it did not dissappoint. We spent some time at Joggins, a UNESCO World Heritage site, then passed through Advocate Harbour on our way to Cape d'Or Lighthouse, we were in awe at the rip tides at Cape d'Or and the ruggedness of the cliffs on this side of the Fundy. Too hazy on the bay to across to our cottage-but we tried! Next we stopped in Parsborro for some scallops on the wharf then a final 3 1/2 hour drive around the Minas Basin to get home. So much driving this day, but we saw so much!

Now if I could get rid of this sinus would be good!
