Long Lake Park Hike

Went for a nice hike at Long Lake Park today, very warm day for Thanksgiving, wished we had brought bathing suites. The water was so calm that we wished we had been kayaking instead. Also met a friendly snake on our travels

We took a short but great trip to Saint John’s last month. Here are some photos we took while seeing this wonderful Atlantic Canadian destination.

Shearbrook Village

Sherbrooke Village is located about 2.5 hours from Halifax, you can get there via 2 routes, Highway 104 to Antigonish, then down the 347 to Sherbrooke, or from Dartmouth via the number 7 highway to Sherbrooke. you can also take a few routes across the province to meet up with either the #7 or the #347 highways. We chose the number 7 from Dartmouth, this coastal highway along the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia offers a great view of the Atlantic Ocean from the many small towns and villages along the way. Places like Tangier, Spry Bay, Ecum Secum, and many others.
Arriving at the village there is a good size parking lot with picnic tables, this is where you pay your entrance fee and can check out the gift shop, we chose to check out the gift shop after we toured the village. Read More
