Is this too much for 9 days?

Hi all, I have attached my new tentative google map schedule for our trip arriving September 5 through 13th. We arrive on a Friday afternoon and will spend 2 nights in Halifax and pick up rental car on Sunday. Original plan was just to do the Cabot Trail, spend last night in Truro and head to airport from there. Now, after reading all the wonderful advice posted here, I have decided to include the Bay of Fundy area. I'm concerned that this now will be too hectic. Tentative overnights are Friday, Saturday Halifax, Sunday Port Hawkesbury, Monday Baddeck, Tuesday Pleasant Bay, Wednesday Antigonish, Thursday, Friday Parrsboro, then airport Saturday to fly home. Please suggest changes as I'd prefer not to change hotels quite so often. We enjoy the outdoors and will hike as much as possible and enjoy local restaurants at night. Appreciate any and all advice. http://goo.gl/maps/bpQqw

Here is a slightly revised map. You will save a bit of time when leaving Joggins by continuing on to Amherst and then to Halifax. It is a longer drive but on quicker roads.

I would look at staying at Port Hastings or area rather than right in Port Hawksbury which is an industrial town and shopping area.

You really cannot save on changing hotels. Just pack light. I often leave a suitcase in the trunk of the car and just take a few things into our hotel each night. We have never had a problem doing this, including in Italy, New Zealand and Australia.

Thanks for that. I am looking into Port Hastings, and the Amherst idea is a good one. Regards, John
