St. John, NB to Digby, NS

Our first overnight stop after leaving the country was in St. John, New Brunswick. We were up bright and early the next morning for a visit to the renowned Reversing Falls.

We didn't actually witness any dramatic tide reversal there (our timing was a bit off) but did notice seals bobbing their heads above the water's surface from time to time.

This was the first of many Tim Horton's restaurants we visited. These coffee/donut shops are absolutely prolific and provided timely warm-up/snack stops! We came to know and love them.

Welcome to Digby, Nova Scotia...

Life is Good!

Pluses: Beautiful scenery, it's still a good hair day, you and Mr. G. look wonderful! Minuses: the looks that three of those guys in Tim Horton's are giving you! hehehe!

This post makes my heart go pitty-pat and I feel homesick. Isn't it beautiful?!? My home was a mile to the left of the ferry landing!

Tim Horton's are in some of our Northern states...we brought some coffee back to his Dad from one. If I remeber right, good cake doughnuts...but you still can't hold a candle to a warm Krispy Kreme when it comes to the glazed.

I'd never heard of the reversing falls. Interesting. Looks like beautiful country.

I do live in a beautiful country. Nova Scotia was the home province of my husband's parents. Our son is currently living in PEI, not far from where you visited.
As for Tim's- they make a delicious blueberry fritter and a reasonable cup of Chai Tea. My folks love Tim's and I buy lots of Tim's cards for them as gifts.
Bruce had an aunt who lived in Riverport- not far from Lunenberg. I remember having fresh scallops and cream on toast.
Happy Travels,
