Soaking In History

Our next adventure takes place in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.  We stayed at Dunromin Family Campground.  This is a fantastic place with something for all ages.

There is a wonderful playground for the little ones.  For the older kids there is a youth rec centre filled with everything from pool to pinball.  For the  older crowd, take a break from cooking and enjoy a healthy meal at the Stone Horse Cafe.

Choose from tenting, staying in your trailer or you can rent a cabin right on the water.

There are open lots and ones nestled in the woods.  That is what we prefer.  This was our first experience with paid showers 50 cents each.  The water was hot and the water pressure excellent.  This is a very clean campground and we highly recommend it.

This is Peggy and Larry from Illinois…they were our neighbours.  A wonderful couple who has been reaching out to the homeless for many years.  Peggy was a wealth of information.  We might meet up with them again in Arizona.

This was our neighbour on the other side.

There is so much to see in this town.  On Saturdays they have a fantastic market.

Of course no market is complete without a fresh belgiun waffle…calories don’t count when you share.

This is Roger.  He recycles water bottles into adorable fish.

This little town is full of art and history.  After touring  Fort Anne and an extremely old graveyard, we spent some time in the Historic Gardens.

There is art throughout the gardens.  This one is titled “Adam and Eve”

This incredible piece is made of thistles.

Imagine a simpler life.

We spent a day in near by Digby. This is another gorgeous small town filled with history and quaint shops.

Digby is well known for fishing scallops.  We spent some time at the Marina.  Fishing mackerel from the pier is popular.  Of course I had my first scallop experience without them being wrapped in bacon.

We have experienced alot of rain on this trip…hopefully it will let up for our next adventure.

Isaiah 40:31  Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
