Though the temperature was well above freezing, the driving wind and rain squalls made it feel pretty darn cold.
Our first stop was at Fisherman's Reserve -- a scenic fishing outpost that clearly has seen better days.
Then we continued on to Martinique Beach, which at 5 km is the longest beach in Nova Scotia.
Fantasies of beach combing were dashed by the driving wet wind, so we lingered only long enough to determine that we wanted to come back on a nicer day.

The wind had driven a lot of sand inland.
But the high point of the day was an unexpected sighting along the shore road. There -- on the shore -- what's that ?
It was a Harp seal relaxing on the shore ! We pulled over, rolled down the car windows and leaned out like goofy tourists taking pictures. I've never seen a wild seal this close and I was surprised by the seal's colourful coat. These are the same seals that start out a fluffy, white babies.
To top off a fun day we paid another visits to the ducks at Walker's Feeds.
