Nova Scotia, Canada – part 1

Beautiful fishing seascapes near Peggy’s Cove, not far from Halifax NS.

It was here that in 1998 the Swiss Air McDonald Douglas DC10 Flight 111 plane crashed into the sea killing all 228 aboard. It was enroute from New York to Geneva and was known as ‘the UN express’.

This is the memorial to those who died in the crash. The plane broke up when it hit the water and there were no survivors.

Lorraine Morris with her ‘grand-dog’. Every morning Lorraine’s grand-daughter brings this beautiful golden retriever to the house and the dog keeps her company all day long. As Lorraine said- its a great way to have a dog – all the fun but none of the responsibility!

Lorraine’s spring garden in full bloom – spectacular even on a rainy day.

At Nth Sydney we at last got a lobster dinner. The lobsters were delicious – but enormous and there is no way to eat these crustaceans except with your fingers!

image

We commented on the large size of the lobsters to the chef. He brought us these even larger pincers from an earlier lobster he’d cooked.

We are now at the top of Cape Breton and soon will depart on a Maritime Atlantique ferry from Nth Sydney to Port aux Basque., Newfoundland. From our Harbourfront B & B we can see the ferry waiting to be loaded at the dock. If the weather is calm this should be about a 7 hour crossing – if not, who knows?

Loading onto the hull of the ferry.

Bon voyage!
