So when she said lets go to the beach, I was not hard to convince.
We pack a lunch and headed out to Mavillette beach in the heart of Acadia, one of the most north western part of Nova Scotia.
Being the Labour day long weekend, the Digby warf rat motorcycle rally was going on, we came across lots of bikes on our way up and down.
It is a good one hour and a half drive from home, we arrived early and surprisingly had the beach practically to ourselves.
Had our picnic then settled to read a good book.
Woodworking on the beach
My favorite reading position :-)
It did not took too long before people start arriving to escape the heat,
but it was still not crowded. This was a bit out of our way, normally we just go over the North mountain to the Fundy shore to escape the heat, but this was a great beach, will be back for sure.
Kids playing in the tidal pools, shallow water very warm.
If I keep going, I'll end up in Maine :-)
Its only a hop and a skip across... :-)
From nearby Yarmouth to Portland Me it is a 10 hours Ferry crossing
Dogs too seek to escape the heat.
Across from our beach on the right, there is a small Acadian fishing village
From the other side, our beach is in the background.
Very nice beach, will be back for sure.
I'm sure it is much more occupied in season, but this was a very nice, quiet beach. Highly recommended.
After a nice diner on our way back home we made it back late in the evening.
All in all a great day, and sure beat painting :-)
