Flag of Canada  , Nova Scotia,
Friday, September 14, 2012

 We awoke in Digby in pea soup fog but it cleared into a beautiful sunny day. Unfortunately the living history museum at Port Royal was closed but we were able to learn a little about the French Acadian settlers there in the early 17th century and how they were chased out by the English.
 Our visit to the only tidal electric power plant in North America was fascinating. The Bay of Fundy, between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, has the largest tides in the world. 
 A scenic drive to the eastern side of the island brought us to the UNESCO-listed township of Lunenburg with its brightly-painted Victorian-style houses and fishing heritage.
 We made it to the end of our drive around Margaret Bay just in time to enjoy the sunset at Peggy's Cove, one of the most beautiful we've shared, against the backdrop of the quaint lighthouse and white rocks.

It does strike us as very enlightened in comparison to the US. But expensive - similar prices for petrol and eating out as Australia.

Very picturesque.
