Take the Self Guided Fundy Eco Tour

Take the Self Guided Fundy Eco Tour

The Fundy Shore Eco Tour used to be a thing. I mean a great Nova Scotia attraction years ago, with branded signage and brochures.These days you may find the odd beat up sign, but you would look long and hard to find brochures/maps. I did some digging-as I love to do-and managed to unearth one online. Why? Because I love that shoreline and want others to experience it. So selfless. So helpful.So full of sh**. As I studied the old…

A Week in Cuba @ Brisas Guardalavaca

A Week in Cuba @ Brisas Guardalavaca

When we decided to treat ourselves to some sun and sand this month,we didn’t choose Brisas Guardalavaca randomly-we’ve been there a couple times before. But after  a trip to the Dominican Republic 3 years ago that left us with a bad impression, we decided to go back to see if we loved it as much as before. Turns out, we did. We weren’t looking for a week of running around crazed trying to see and do everything. We’ve done that…

Returning to Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct

Returning to Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct

Hubby tells me it’s been 17 years since we last scrambled our way along the trail to Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct. He was 50. I would have been 46. Yes, we are THAT old. Over 2500 years ago, the now submerged sections of  Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct was home to ancestors of the Mi’kmaq . Since then, it’s rocky and barren landscape lent itself to few successful  occupations, however foundations of  a large sheep farm  are still found along the trails . You’ll find…

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

My plan was to go to the  beach.Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach specifically. That was my plan. And I got there, although not to laze around on the sand in the sun. It wasn’t that kind of day. It was  a day for exploring. Everyday is a day for exploring, isn’t it? Rain,wind snow, everyday lends itself to some kind of unknown adventure, be it low key or thrilling. Today was low key. What was once privately owned farmland,Malagash’s Blue Sea…
