Today some traveling to do. After the perfect breakfast I am leaving the Rossmount Inn to go to Saint John to get me the ferry to Digby in Nova Scotia. I ordered the ticket over the Internet, so it is always nice it worked out. The ride is a smooth one (no whales seen though) and after some 3 hours I am in Nova Scotia again. Just of the boat I have a call with my nephew of 9 who is using his first phone, nice.
Leaving Saint John
Arriving in Nova Scotia
It takes me almost 2,5 hours to get to Kingsburg, my last stay. Getting there, especially following the La Have River from Bridgeport is extremely nice. There are so many nice houses and many with boats on front, great scenic drive. It takes me some puzzling to get to Kingsburg, as I do not have a very good map and just a few Km before I get there the name is listed. But what a view when I arrive …. breathtaking.
I can already see my house for the next few days, the one on the left.
John (owner of the house and the real estate broker) and Ann welcome me with again some nice white wine and grapes and after some chatting invite me for a visit to Hirtle Beach. Actually there John suggest to walk back along the beaches, I think 45 minutes walk. Great views, great houses, lovely beaches and best of all, only few people making use of them.
As my car was still at the beach we go back but John shows me many houses (many of the famous architect Brian MacKay-Lyons) and views. Finally :-) at 20.30 after a great welcome and introduction to Kingsburg I arrive at my house, the Beach House and what a house it is.
The morning sun (at 05.00) is giving some perfect opportunities for nice pictures.
Will do some touring today in the region, like Lunenburg, La Have, Chester, Mahone and Bridgewater.
