i think i finally have an itinerary for our upcoming trip and would welcome any feedback or suggestions you might have. here goes :)
thurs june 30th - arrive halifax 7 pm - drive to new glasgow to stay with friends until departing july 2nd a.m. we plan on visiting melmerby beach...any other sites along that stretch that would make a good day trip?
sun july 3rd - depart new glasglow - drive to mabou. overnight at the mabou river inn. plan to attend the afternoon ceidilh at the red shoe pub 4 - 7. is there anywhere else we could visit once we have checked in or enroute to mabou?
mon july 4th - depart mabou and make our way around the cabot trail ending up in baddeck for an overnight at the inverary resort. we would like to be there by late afternoon to enjoy mussels and beer they offer lakeside between 3 and 5. as this will be our only full day "touring" please suggest an easy walking trail and the best use of our time to visit sites coming around the cape.
tues july 5th - depart baddeck and travel to wolfville (how long and what's the quickest way?) we would like to tour the wineries and spend an overnight there at "in wolfville guesthouse".
here's where i'm stuck a bit...we would like to see the tides as best we can but not sure how to make the best use of our time.
wed july 6th - depart wolfville visiting halls harbour, the lookoff blomindon?? and would also like to go whale watching off brier island.
how much could we do on the tuesday (combined with winery) and how much could we do on the wednesday (enroute to yarmouth)? we need to be in yarmouth by about 5:00 pm. i know we are trying to fit in loads so i really need help defining what is really feasible.
overnight with family in yarmouth july 6th, 7th and 8th - depart morning of july 9th for halifax. stop in lunenberg, mahone bay and peggy's cove to arrive in halifax by 3:00 pm.
july 9th - overnight in halifax - fly home at 7:30 pm
exhausted just writing this LOL...thanks in advance!
