Wednesday & Thursday, September 19, 20

We continued on down into the interior, about halfway across Nova Scotia, to Kejimkujik National Park, very woodsy with a lot of lakes and marshes. We stayed two nights, kayaked a bit, and relaxed from intense traveling. Tom ventured out at sunset on Thursday, and came across 3 white tail deer browsing in the woods near the trail. While he did not have his long telephoto lens, he was able to come very close to capture these relatively tame creatures with his camera. We departed on Friday morning for the South Shore and the Atlantic Ocean side of Nova Scotia. We began to wonder if we would ever see and experience the "wow."
