(Ron Writing) This morning we left Amherst, NS heading northeast on Highway 366. This took us up to the Northumberland Strait, the body of water along most of the northeast side of Nova Scotia. We spent most of the day driving the scenic Sunrise Trail, Highways 366 and 6, right along the coast. This scenic route took us through several fishing villages and other small towns along the coast. There are also areas of forest land and farm land. It was a beautiful drive. We got as far as New Glasgow where we are spending the night at Wal*Mart.
We had a few light showers but most of the time it was just cloudy with pleasant temperatures. The forecast is for more of the same for the next several days. We’re beginning to think the sun seldom shines in the Maritimes!
