10 Things to Do Day Tripping Along in Colchester County

Bear-y Good Near Debert

Alright. You neither know nor care where Colchester County is, right?

I’m telling you anyway, because its just a beautiful part of the province.

Colchester encompasses Shubenacadie to Truro to Five Islands and some of the most spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy and Cobequid Bay you will  ever see.

We aren’t strangers to this area-hubby has a camp on Economy Mountain. Sometimes we just jump in the car and make  a day of exploring -always something new to find.

Hunting for Red in October- Red Bench Tour

The Red Bench of Kings County

We all know that 2017 has been one big year long celebration thus far.

The party continues.
Recently I went on a Red Bench bus tour hosted by the Municipality of the County of Kings-the last of 4 that were spread out over the summer and fall. The brain child of Mayor Peter Muttart  and his councilors, the tour was designed to visit each of the 5 permanently installed benches  throughout Kings County as the municipality’s contribution to Canada’s big 150 birthday.

Our guide for the tour was David Poole, now retired and formerly with the municipality’s planning department.  He did a great job, spicing his dialogue with little stories  about the area and his life.

Here’s the great thing-you can do this tour in your car. Course you may not get all the dirt, err, information we got, but it would be fun just the same.  It was a daylong trip for us, but you may want to spread it out over a weekend. Grab a map of the itinerary  here

 Red Bench #1 Aylesford Lake.

The gate to the  beach  is locked this time of year, but you don’t mind a little stroll in  from the road,do you? Aylesford Lake is the only one in Kings County with lifeguards on staff during the summer months. It’s also fully accessible including the canteen, toilets and picnic areas. It’s part of the Gaspereau Watershed.
