Exploring Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore: A travel diary

“Oh really? You never hear of people going out that way. What’s there?”

The car rental agent hung the question and our keys over the counter as he asked about our plan to explore Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Boyfriend and I didn’t know what awaited on our three-day getaway from the city, other than a chance to unplug and decompress. We shrugged and told him we’d share what we found when we dropped the car off.

Wandering In Caye Caulker, Belize
