NovaScotia Tour

Day 6: Nova Scotia travel days once again, Confederation Bridge and Digby.
We crossed Confederation Bridge to New Brunswick and on to Nova Scotia again. First stop was the Habitation at Port-Royal National Historic Site, a reconstruction of one of North America's earliest European settlements. This recreates life here in the early 17th century. We continued on to a two-night stay at a golf resort in Digby, built in 1929 overlooking the Annapolis Basin and the Bay of Fundy.

Day 7: Whale-watching on the Bay of Fundy and our Farewell Dinner.
Some of us got a close-up look at nature's wonders during an excursion to Digby Neck, a long peninsula on the Bay of Fundy offering world-renowned whale and bird watching. That evening we gathered for a farewell cocktail reception and dinner

Day 8: The Acadian saga ends our P.E.I. and Nova Scotia travel.
On the way to Halifax for our journey home we passed through rich Annapolis Valley farmland to visit Grand-Pré National Historic Site where the British deported the French Acadians in 1755; the incident inspired Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to write his famous poem, Evangeline.
