Sep 23, 2016 - Digby NS

We headed into town after breakfast, it was overcast but rain expected early afternoon. So we walked around, looking in some shops, and decided to purchase some scallops at the local fish market and cook them up ourselves. I have never cooked them before, but found a recipe in a tourist book( which inspired us to try it ourselves and would only take 4 min to do) We then drove out to Point Prim Lighthouse and check out the view. As you can see from my pics, it was an awesome view. The rain did come, but that didn't stop us from see some...

We arrived to Digby in about 4 hrs, stopping for lunch along the way. We found a campsite called Digby Campground, it's very close to the Town. Not a big site, but quaint . We will do more site seeing in the AM. I ventured out down to the water and picked clam and snail shells . Another warm and sunny day.

Jul 26, 2016 - Digby, Nova Scotia

breakfast again at the hotel. Today it is very foggy and damp outside making it very cool. After breakfast we boarded the bus and shopped downtown Saint Andrews for an hour. Heading this morning for Saint John we stopped along the way to view the"Reversing Falls" on the Bay of Fundy. It was so foggy when we got to the reversing falls that we could not even see the the other side. Photos not good. We arrived in Saint John, New Brunswick for lunch. Off the bus we headed to The City Market. This is a market inside for vendors to sell their...

May 10, 2016 - Lunenburg, Grand Pre & Digby

The next leg of the trip took me to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and one UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Lunenburg Lunenburg was chosen as a WHS since its town layout became the model for a number of English settlements in the Colonies. Oddly, they chose a square grid-like design imposed on a very hilly landscape. Still, the town retains a number of 18th and 19th houses and public buildings that are well maintained. The town was and is a major fisheries port. Unfortunately the Fisheries Museum had yet to open for the season. Too bad, but I'll...

Aug 28, 2015 - NFLD to Digby Nova Scotia

Hi. The next day we wento Codroy to check out Memories. It was a collection of memories from a character's past. He had his '50's Ford fairlane, Herbie's volkswagon and the Munster's hearse. He had gas pumps--a 1919 and a 1939 with gas at $0.08 and $0.35 a gal respetively. He had many old-time signs and other paraphenalia including his wife's 60's knife pleated reversible plaid skirt and yellow crinoline. All the time we were there '60's music played. Remember when? After, we explored all the little roads around. That night we went to hear...

Aug 21, 2015 - Digby, Nova Scotia

We left Campers Haven in Yarmouth yesterday around 1030 for the 100 mile drive to Digby, Nova Scotia. Digby is located on the Fundy Bay side of Nova Scotia and it calls itself the scallop capital of the world. I don’t know if it is in fact the scallop capital of the world but everywhere we go that serves seafood brags that they serve Digby Scallops. The road from Yarmouth to Digby, Highway 101, in one of better roads we have traveled in Nova Scotia. The roads surface was in good repair and there is a very wide clearing of trees and...

Sep 2, 2014 - 1917 Halifax explosion

This week has emphasized the power of nature and the power of humans. national blindness dictates that events considered to be universally known, are unknown elsewhere. (The lesson anne learns on a visit to her sister mary in the jane Austen book persuasion).The 1917 explosion in Halifax harbor is such an event. We know about the great Chicago fire and the earthquake and fire in San Francisco, but we had never heard of the explosion in Halifax. On December 6, 1917, the French ship Mont Blanc entered Halifax harbor in order to join a...

Aug 19, 2014 - A Day on Digby Neck

Mr. Prim must have been important (an additional thing to check when we have unlimited wifi) because there is another Point Prim and lighthouse, this one on the Bay of Fundy and our first stop of the day. As we traveled west, it was revealed that the scenic route is more views of St. Mary’s Bay than of Fundy. We rumbled on gravel and dirt roads, in 4WD for a bit before we returned to the 217, lined with Queen Annes’ Lace, goldenrod and two purple varieties common here. After sandwiches at the Petit Ferry landing we headed back east,...

Aug 18, 2014 - On to Digby

We said goodbye to our Liverpudlian camp host David, whose accent sounds like a combination of Scots, Cockney, and "down east." He was attentive during our stay and asked for feedback. Heading west on 103, we passed through Shelburne - home of Loyalists, Barrington - lobster capital of Canada, another Acadian region, the Punicos - established 1653, and Yarmouth. In Yarmouth we stopped to make sandwiches and experienced our first equipment issue. A cabinet door which cannot be viewed when the slides are in had popped open; the slide caught...

Sep 29, 2013 - Lunenburg to Digby NS

September 29 Awoke to another gorgeous day! Drove along Rte 3 and Mahone Bay which is a lovely fishing village with two picture perfect churches of course. We then took Rte 14 to Windsor which is a doorway to the Annapolis Valley, the bread basket of Nova Scotia. Lots of “U Pick” apples everywhere. Charming villages but became routine after a while. Jumped on Hwy 103, 4 lane road until we took a detour south to Bear River. Bear River is a picturesque village built on stilts in the Bear River (which runs into the Bay of Fundy) and the home...

Aug 29, 2013 - Digby, Nova Scotia

August 29 – Today we are driving to Digby, just down the coast and site of the Wharf Rat Motorcycle Rally. It doesn’t start until the weekend, but there are already a lot of cyclists in the area and they are getting all the tents and such set up. It is a little cloudy and cool so we are just walking in downtown looking at the shops. I was very surprised to find a very nice quilt shop in this small town. She had quite a few beautiful quilts displayed and some very nice fabric. I was able to get a nice design for my pillow cases plus a few...
