On Saturday, I was torn between going to the Etsy Made in Canada craft show in Halifax, or doing the beach tour that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. In the end, the sunshine and blue skies said one thing – go to the beach! So I did. I made my lunch, packed my atlas, extra shoes, and cooler in the car, recharged my camera battery and iPhone, and checked Google maps to see how far my great adventure was going to take me. Turns out, I was going to be traveling a whopping 33.1 kilometers from home. Hmmmmm…. so it was a mini adventure. And every good adventure starts with a ferry ride :-)
First stop – Risser’s Beach. Once I finally figured out where to park, I took a walk up the beach and along the boardwalk. I don’t know what it is about boardwalks, but I love them….
And walking on the beach…
Then I headed over to Cherry Hill Beach. I timed it so I would get there at low tide. The vast expanse of sand is incredible.
It was a long walk from one end of the beach to the other and back, but it was so nice to be outside enjoying the gorgeous weather and watching the waves.
On my way back home, I made a quick stop at Green Bay Beach. We had a great time here in 2010 with a bunch of dogs and a few humans :-) From 2010…
And from 2015…
Right around here is where the ocean water meets the bay water, and all of a sudden the water is warmer.
Thought this sign was cute :-) Especially because when we were here in 2010, Squirt pooped in the ocean!
One last stop before getting on the ferry – the LaHave Bakery. Yum!
And back across the river on the ferry – almost home!
There are a LOT more beaches to explore. Maybe my next beach adventure will take me more than 33.1kms from home ;-)
