I drove through Amherst in search of breaky. Nice place, lots of old buildings. Was very quiet - oh yeah, stat holiday!
I couldn't decide which route or direction I should take to see Nova Scotia and ended up just heading towards Cape Breton. I know I want to see this area and I keep hearing people taking about the end of the season so maybe I should do this first - just in case.
Driving down this nice road and came into Tatamagouche and it was crazy! There were cars and people everywhere. Stopped at the VIC and found out that a parade was just about to start. They close the road for it so why not watch! It`s put on by the fire dept and is a local fundraiser and by the amount of people - very popular. Chatted with a few locals during it - met some nice people
Back on the road I saw a sign for a lavender farm - why not! I stopped there and a fellow gave me a tour and explained the different types of lavender and how they process it and what products they make. Was a nice set up...maybe I should start a lavender farm...hmm...
I ended up in Pictou and went to the big VIC to get info on the city cause there were a couple things I read about that seemed fun. Was advised that everything was closed for the stat holiday...poo. Decided to get a campsite for the night and check out the town tomorrow.
Went to Harbour Light Campground and the guy was really amazed that I came all the way from BC on my own. He let me choose a site (good cause the tent one werent great) and even gave me an adaptor so I could plug in my laptop! I went back to pay him and refused, said it was on the house cause I brought the good weather with me! It`s true though, I did bring the sun.
Went for a walk on the beach and even found two pieces of sea glass - yeah! Had a peaceful evening.
