It was the first school in-service day of the year and my son Jaden and daughter Lienna welcomed the leisurely start to their day off. They were content watching some morning television so I decided to enjoy my coffee by the computer to explore the feasibility of a little adventure that I had in mind.

Take a Right at Lunenburg to Gaff Point

I was researching for a coastal hike, I stumbled upon this place called Gaff Point. There was some recent trail building work and a surge from hiking & outdoor groups were planning outings. This sudden interest deserved a more detailed visit with my hiking buddy - Keji the Black Lab.

Getting there was fairly easy, just head for UNESCO old town of Lunenburg, but hang a right and continue along route 332, a few kilometers past another place of interest: Ovens Natural Park.

Blooms of shimmering jellyfish as big as your thumbnail rise and fall in dreamy movement a few feet from your paddle. Bubbles from burrowing clams rise in a stream from the ocean floor while hundreds of seabirds explore the exposed flats, feasting on crabs, snails and other creatures.

BoatingByOldSal.jpg A vivid image of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau sprung to mind as I confirmed our next family outing. I must have seen Cousteau's picture in an old National Geographic magazine growing up and recall how rugged and cool he looked aboard his Zodiac boat. We were about to experience our own Cousteau-worthy Zodiac adventure and could hardly wait!

AmherstShoreParkTrail.jpg Being a man, I am not sure I am allowed to say this, but I figure camping can be a lot like child birth. You sometimes have to go through a lot of pain for great reward. As time passes you forget about the pain, only to do it all over again.

P1010318.JPG On a sunny day in Harbourville the beaches sparkle. Typical Nova Scotia beaches sparkle when the sun reflects on the sand. In Harbourville, the sparkle is generated from the many gems embedded in the stones that line the shore.

Driftwood & Dining Adventure in Advocate Harbour

By BayOfFundy, on Wed, 4 Sep 2013 | 0 Comments

DriftwoodBeach_WestAdvocate.jpg I was scrambling around the house attempting to pack up for an overnight get-away. It was my wife Sara's birthday weekend so I wanted her to sit back and relax and I would handle all of the details. It quickly became evident that I am not the organizer in our relationship. Though in my defense, with the number of food allergies we have to contend with in our family (dairy, soy, gluten, corn, canola, cocoa, etc. etc.), packing is never the simplest of tasks.
