I am going to NS from August 17th to the 25th. I have read so many posts on all the things to see and visit, which has made me excited about our upcoming trip and also more confused as to where I should concentrate, with all there is to see.
Right now I am leaning towards the following itinerary:
Day 1 and 2 - land in Halifax and stay at Dauphine Inn (Hubbards) for 2 nights and visit (Lunenberg, Mahone Bay and Peggys Cove). Also thinking of taking the Bluenose sailing trip from Lunenberg.
Day 3 and 4 -Drive from Lunenberg to Kejimkujik park and after doing some Kayak/canooing/cycling maybe, drive to Annapolis Royal and stay at Hillsdale House for 2 nights (do whale watching at Digby and visit evangeline trail towards Minas Basin and see the tides) following the scenic route with some stops on the way.
Day 5 and 6 I don't know if to use these days and try to make it up to do the Cabbot trail, or Advocate harbour and Cape D'or instead...Help?? Is my plan to ambitious. Any suggestions???
Day 7 and 8 back to Halifax for one night - sightseeing, and fly out on the 8th at 3pm
I would be grateful to get any comments or suggestions. I do realize I will have to come back to NS, because there is too many beautiful things to see...
