We went to Digby to get the famous scallops. We must have picked the wrong restaurant, as we had better scallops in Camden Maine on the way up.
Agree with this. The scallops were nothing special, but Digby is such a lovely and relatively unspoiled little town that we enjoyed it. We had a spot in a campgound overlooking the bay, a short walk from town.
Old Shipyard's Beach
was our Favorite Campground. It is located on Spencers Island Nova Scotia about 20 miles west of Parrsboro and a stones throw from the small town of Advocates Harbor.
It is located on the Bay of Fundy and you have a direct view of the famous tides immediately out your window as they do their famous in-and-out on schedule. Local Fresh Daily SeaFood (in season lobster, crab, oysters, fish) is available nearby.
The Wild Caraway restaurant in nearby Advocates Harbor is not to be missed. The chef is from Australia.
we spent a month in the Maritimes 2 summers ago Graves Island in Nova Scotia Baddeck was a great place to stay. On PEI we were the only ones in a couple of campgrounds. We mostly stayed in provincial parks. Oh Mackdequac in New Brunswick and go to Kings Landing.
Spent several days camped along the Maine border and crossed into Canada to sightsee. One of our favorite crossings was to Campobello Island--visited the Roosevelt Museum there. Very interesting history about our US president in a jointly owned (USA/Canada) park/museum.
Styed near Shediac. Camped on the Northumberland Strait at Camping Plage Gagnon Beach. I was able to Kayak on the Strait and the next day at low tide walk out farther than I had taken the Kayak.
Camped in Dartmouth, near Halifax, at the Shubie Campground. We used this as a base and took day trips to the East and West along the coast. Peggy's Cove is a great sight. Good hiking trail behind the campground on an old north/south canal with well preserved locks and dams.
A good restaurant near Shubie Campground is MicMac Restaurant.
In Halifax we went to a dinner theater and a ship museum. Also toured a beer factory.
Wonderful trip and really want to go back to see more.

There is a city park in Saint Johns NB with a large campground. Very reasonable for a weeks stay and there is plenty to see in and around the area. Don't miss St. Andrews for a day trip. We went into PEI on the bridge and stayed near Charlottown. Take the ferry to NS and go the Cape Verde Island. Plenty of campgrounds near Cabot Trail and several nice day trips from there. We stayed at a real nice campground about 20 miles from Halifax at St Margaretes Bay near Peggy's Cove. Don't forget Lunenburg for a day trip. It served as a backdrop for the Jesse Stone TV movies. Hopewell Rocks are near Moncton and have the highest tides in the world. Enjoy your trip, we did.
