Barrington Woolen Mill - Cape Sable Island - Cape Forchu - Gilbert's Cove - Digby - Brier Island - Balancing Rock - Bear River - Kejimkujik National Park

The bad weather confined us within the next few days, while we passed the old Woolen Mill in Barrington, it was still dry but suddenly heavy rain poured down and made our bird watching tour at Cape Sable Island impossible, heavy fog covered the lighthouse at Cape Forchu but just a few hours later Gilbert's Cove Lighthouse showed up in a few shafts of sunlight and the evening at Digby promised nicer weather for the next day. Along with sun we drove to Westport at Brier Island, but arrived there - again fog was against us and took away all chances to see any whales here as our tour was cancelled.

Lunenburg's Magnolia's Café has a secret weapon - Rhubarb Relish! If you're not from Nova Scotia's South Shore, you're probably thinking - Rhubarb? - Relish? - Wha? Oh yeah, you read it correctly - fishcakes aren't fishcakes without Rhubarb Relish. Its sweet and tangy flavor is the perfect compliment to any type of white fish based dish. After years of eating fishcakes and rhubarb relish at Magnolia's Grill, the time had come to attempt to duplicate this delicious delight. After researching recipes a bit, we felt that the Dutch Oven recipe seemed to be a good bet.
