South Shore, Nova Scotia - Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, Chester & Lunenburg

February 27, 2016

Last year we did a stay-cation at the Atlantica Oak Island Resort.  We stayed there for 4 days and explored the south shore of Nova Scotia.  It is a beautiful resort and we had a room with a view of the ocean and Oak Island.  There is lots to do on the resort and one of my favourite nights was sitting by the campfire that they hosted.  Just a few minutes away from Mahone Bay we spent a lot of time there walking the trails along the water and window shopping in the shops.  In Lunenburg we took in the full tourist experience with visiting the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, did the historic tour of the town on the horse and wagon tour, and our last day there we went on a whale watching tour - but unfortunately did not see any whales - but we were treated to seals and the Ovens caves from the water.  One of our favourite activities in Lunenburg was wandering in and out of all of the Art Galleries - there were so many of them.  We also spend a misty afternoon in the town of Chester.  It was our first time ever visiting and it was so beautiful.  At the end of our trip on our way home we stopped at Queens Landing beach for the afternoon - one of my favourite beaches in the province.  We didn't visit the iconic Peggy's Cove on this trip but have on several others so I also included a few of my photos from there as well.

Adult Colouring Sheets - We also thought it would be fun to get into the Adult Colouring Craze and tried turning some of our photos of Peggy's Cove into Adult Colouring Sheets.  You can download them for free here.
