The Surf Report: Knee-High To A Grasshopper

Day 74    August 22, 2014   Halifax to Havre Boucher, Nova Scotia, Canada

This day was kind of like a repositioning cruise day for us. Not a lot really happened as we did some errands, and slowly made our way towards Cape Breton. It was a peaceful day.

We passed through Lawrencetown and stopped to visit the Kannon Beach Surf Shop. Yep, there’s surfing in Nova Scotia. But I don’t know when, ‘cause it was knee-high to a grasshopper when we were there! And we were scouting the right place, as I asked the surf shop employee where the surf breaks are.

Onwards, up the road we travelled, passing little coastline coves and teeny tiny towns. It was overcast and raining a bit, but it was a pretty and relaxing drive.

We did stop for a while at Sherbooke Village, which was referred to as an “open air museum.” The place was closed when we got there, but it wasn’t gated, and so we were able to walk around at our leisure and take photos. I think it’s kind of an historical reenactment kind of place where people dress up in period costumes and show you how life was way back when. Truthfully, I was glad it was closed. It was much more enjoyable, just Mark, me and the dogs, walking and shooting pics with nobody in our way.

We drove until it was almost dark, and docked for the night at Hyclass Ocean Campground, in Havre Boucher.
