I don't know that area well so contacted a friend who lives in the area for suggestions about places to meet and go.
She suggested that I meet my friends at the LaHave Bakery and then head to a nearby beach.
So after meeting up at the Bakery we drove 15 minutes down the road to Cherry Hill Beach.
Even though it was a weekend and the weather mild we only encountered 6 or 7 other people on the beach and most of them we paddle boarders.
We strolled down the beach while Wendy chased the ball and Sooki did "zooomies' along the shore.
|It's wonderful how works of art pop up every where I go.|
|Betty and her grand daughter.|
After a few hours of walking the glorious beach we popped back in the car to head back to the LaHave Bakery for lunch. On the way I got drawn down a road called "Wharf Road". Do you know how many "Wharf Roads" there are in Nova Scotia ? I wish I could drive down each and every one of them because I'm never disappointed.
We peeked into this place as the door stood open. Sadly, attached to the door was a "stop work order" dated last June. And now it seems to have been abandoned.
Just up a short path from this road we found another cove with old fishing huts.
From here we finally made our way back to the Bakery for a delicious lunch out on the deck.

Lots of freshly baked goods and a marvellous atmosphere.
|This lovely old dory was pulled up next to the dock where we had lunch.|
|We made a little sign to send greetings back to an old friend back in Peterborough.|
|We watched as this sailboat heeled over ever farther.|
After that all-too-brief visit I mid my friends "safe travels" as they hit the road to continue their adventure. So glad they looked me up and I got to explore a couple of new places.
