Yesterday we three amigos hit the road early.
Our goal was to have breakfast in Grand Pre
which is about 100 kms from home.
We made it there in no time flat....
had an Eastcoast Breakfast which consisted of
two fishcakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, baked beans,
multigrain toast and orange slices.
Just what we needed!!
By this time Sophie was pleading with us to get to the canal....
one of her favourite places to swim (and I believe the
second place she learned to swim when she was a puppy).
So off we went.
This photo below is the road/path along the canal.
It is always very peaceful and full of life,
not from other humans, but from dragon flies and butterflies.
They were everywhere.
From the canal we decided to drive across the 'spine' of Nova Scotia
to the South Shore which was about an hour and a half drive.
We took highway # 12 .
As are most highways/roads in Nova Scotia, it was full of bends
and turns with only a few straight stretches.
And, as are most off-roads in Nova Scotia, there wasn't
much traffic either way.

Left of center you can see the town of Windsor, and just left of this is hwy 12. Since we are looking at the map....if you see Chester at the end of hwy 12 and then below that Peggy's Cove,
now look right in a straight line and you see Halifax, Dartmouth and below Dartmouth
Lawrencetown....where we live (that black dot!!).
I can see that we took the long route to get to the South Shore yesterday!!
C'est la vie.
