|Subject: Re: Nova Scotia and PEI|
My wife and I just visited Nova Scotia last month. We concentrated on
two areas; the South Shore, and Cape Breton. On the South Shore not far from
Halifax are some wonderful seaside communities. Closest is Peggy's Cove
(which we did not visit), then Mahone Bay, and a little further Lunenburg
where we spent a couple of days. Just a little beyond Lunenburg is a place
called the Ovens. Sea caves along rocky headlands that were the sit of a
gold rush. Naturally beautiful and historically interesting.
Cape Breton is breathtakingly beautiful. Well worth the drive out to
that part of the province.
One of the most helpful items I had was a publication put out by the
Nova Scotia Economic Development and Tourism Department. It is called Nova
Scotia: 1999 Complete Guide for Doers and Dreamers. You can call toll-free
at 1-800-565-0000 or access their website at
http://explore.gov.ns.ca/virtualns and have them send you one.
Also, if you go through New Glasgow, Nova Scotia on your way to PEI
I recommend you stop in at Rene's Bistro at 216 Archimedes St. 755-3122.
Tell Rene (the chef and owner) those two skiers from San Diego, Ca. say hello.
