Did you all know that this is the birthplace of Nova Scotia? Well I was born and raised in N.S. and I did not know that.
Today we took a drive to this lovely quaint little town….sitting right on the water, with fishing boats moored in the afternoon sunlight, we knew we had picked a lovely spot to sit and have lunch. Looking across at the colourful scene, we ate some of the best Fish n’ Chips ever. I know, I know I said that 2 weeks ago but I am serious, this is TOP of the list. The haddock was so fresh and crisp and delicious that I am already planning to go back later this week. I have reminded myself that I could have the Fish without the Chips and by the feel of my favourite shorts I am wearing today, it had better be sooner rather than later that I make these sorts of wise choices. Ray was a bit better behaved; he had Fish and Salad…granted it was Caesar’s fully loaded salad but it does look somewhat healthier. 🙂 After our delightful luncheon, we meandered down the street on the waterfront and poked around in various shops. I could give a brief history lesson here about the ship the Hector which brought Scottish settlers to our shores but I shall leave it up to you to Google or Bing or whatever for yourselves; better yet, visit Pictou yourselves one day. I highly recommend it for one and all!
Happy Travels to you all………………..
