Nova Scotia (and a little New Brunswick), Canada

For about four weeks during August we were exploring Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast. We didn't take too many photos on our adventures as we spent most of our time relaxing on some of the many beaches that surround the province.

While we were here I had a local say to me that there are about two good weeks in Nova Scotia where the weather is warm and the ocean is nice enough to swim in. Of course they said it in jest, but there must be some truth to it, and I think we must've arrived during that time. For most of our time there the temperature sat between 25C and 30C (77F and 86F), and the water temperature was about 18C (65F). Perfect! We spent most of our time swimming in the ocean (something we haven't really done since we left Australia four years ago!) and relaxing on the many white sand beaches. We both grew up by the sea and spent most of our lives in the water, so getting back in the ocean after so long was pure bliss.

While in Nova Scotia we took a brief trip into New Brunswick (the neighbouring province) to spent time in Fundy National Park and Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park. The Bay of Fundy has been on my bucket list for years! And it did not disappoint! The Bay of Fundy hosts the largest tides in the world. Usually tides are around 12m (40ft), but tides of 16m (53ft) have also been recorded. They move so fast here that you can actually see the water going out.

Nova Scotia has so many beautiful white sand beaches

So far we have loved our time exploring Maritime Canada. We have been travelling around here for about 3 months now. You can read about our Newfoundland travels here. We have now moved on to Prince Edward Island and are so excited to explore everything this province has to offer.
