The rest of trip was spent at the Summerville Beach Retreat, a nice little chalet near the ocean. We used this as a home base for small day trips.
Here is the cabin that we stayed in. This is the only shot that has the rental car that we used (the green Taurus that is parked next to it.) The cabin is one of many, and is the newest, as indicated by the unfinished construction of the lower half. The couple that runs it is interesting. She runs the lodging and he maintains it. The cabins are his "day" job, which means that there are lots of construction projects going on. Click on the cabin to take a tour.
The Summerville Beach Retreat is in walking distance of the Summerville Beach, a white sand beach that stretches about 1/2 mile.
This is a picture looking back at where the chalet is, which is not visible. If it were, it would be about a third of the way in from the left. It is about here that we stumbled on one of the rails to trails. These trails are converted railroad beds that the Canadian government has set up. To take a walk with us, click on the picture above.
That evening, we took a hike on the Port L'Hebert Pocket Wilderness trail. The trail went around a marsh and by the above pond.
The beautiful lady slipper orchid was ubiquitous here.
We spent Thursday going over to Lunenburg and back. We visited Lunenburg on our honeymoon bacause there was a folk festival. This time we were too early for the festival, but we visited the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. This museum is devoted to the history of fishing the Atlantic coast: the ships, the equipment, and the way of life.
The Cape Sable was a cod fishing boat. It would go out to sea for months at a time to catch cod. The cod would be processed on the ship, which in those days meant salted. There was no refrigeration back then.
Here, Jeff got caught, and is awaiting processing by Cindy.
On the way back from Lunenburg, we stopped off at the Ovens Natural Park because Cindy thought Jeff wanted to go there and Jeff thought Cindy wanted to go there. This park has a nice little trail that visits 7 sea caves or ovens. There is an oven in the lower right of the picture.
We spent Friday going to Kejimkujik National Park.
The park was beautiful. We hiked two trails in the woods, and saw two species of snakes and a frog. This was the only picture we took, at an overlook of one of the lakes there.
