The end of the trip

As promised, the final report on my trip to Nova Scotia!

There was a lot of driving in the last couple days, but on pretty quiet roads, so I didn’t mind. The best part was having Chris put on my THE WAY WE FALL playlist (aptly titled “plague book” ;) ) during the long stretches. Hearing those some of those songs while driving through the landscapes my characters would have grown up in gave me the shivers, literally.

Our first stop was up on Digby Neck, where we went out on a whale-watching cruise. We got to see several humpback whales (including one that breached–leapt out of the water!) as well as dolphins, porpoises, and a brief glimpse of a seal. Hard to take pics of them, but here’s my best attempt with the whales:


Then we headed to the beautiful little town of Annapolis Royal, where I got to take a spooky and historical graveyard tour and we stayed in the oldest inn there, by far our favorite of the places we stayed, Hillsdale House:


Totally recommend it if you’re ever in the area.

Our last full day, we checked out some more cliffs, in the Blomidon Provincial Park. It’s on the Bay of Fundy, so the tides are very extreme–the water depth changing by a few dozen feet between low and high tide. We were at the beach close to low tide, and you can get some idea of how much of the sea floor was left bare:


And then it was time to come home. But I’m sure we’ll return some day!
