The neighbouring province of Nova Scotia has an amazing network of Provincial Parks. This past Friday evening my husband and I made a last minute decision to head out to the one at Amherst Shore and try out a new tent as we prepare for an even bigger adventure in the near future. We arrived with just enough day light to set up our campsite and head down to the beach to watch the sun set over this beautiful area.
The campground was full, but we were able to secure a site in their “overflow” section - which was just perfect for us! We made our home for the night in the old apple orchard where wild raspberry bushes covered the ground, as wild raspberries are apt to do!
We spent the next day exploring the area on our bikes, partook of some lovely cuisine in Cap Pele and ended our day with a swim in the incredibly warm waters at a favorite little beach nearly.
All in all a wonderfully refreshing mini vaca!
