Destination- Nova Scotia bound

Recommended Posts

It was very nice. We stayed at Ocean Cove Campground. Right on the bay and very quiet. Closet town was Digby which we visited a few times. Best scallops anywhere. Learned a few road tips: Never sleep at a service plaza on the highway, always take the ferry when available and the 2 Walmarts (Moncton NB and Augusta, ME) were good stops for the night. Glad I got towing the toad on the dolly for the 1st time done.

Now thats what i call a low tide.

That's a good feed., We loved Digby, went there a few times. If in that area again we found this German restaurant in Annapolis Royal

called the Sachsen Cafe. Good food and bakery, I got to speak a little German with the owners. Jagerschnitzel and Gulasch soup was fantastic.

DB, we had lunch there!  I only missed not having Red Cabbage...since there was 48 of us, no soup!  We had the whole place for 90 minutes!  Did you find the Ice Cream Shop? It was 2 blocks past Sachsen.  

In Digby, across from Mc Donald, there is a pub called Sunset, they serve food on the back patio, the best scallops we found anywhere in area, also craft beer!  We tried 7 other restaurants down by  the Harbor.  We where camped 44 miles away for 3 days, Parkers Cove, next to the Americus Lobster Processing Plant....Lobster Chowder fresh daily at 1100.  One whole lobster per serving at CA$ 12, that was $8.40 !!!

Oh ya! And I love the condiment (beer) as well, I don't think you could balance that meal any much better.

About a 2 ponder?  We could not find any "Chicken Lobster"...all 1.5 pounds and up!  We stayed with the 2's to 2.5, fit the table better! :lol:  They had 14 off 8 lbs + at the plant for the Japanese buyer.  US$750 each + fees, overnight delivery by UPS!  They had one at over 17 lbs, not for sale, it was destined to be returned to the Atlantic, estimated age 150 years +!

DB, we walked in that harbor & several others! LOL
