A Postcard from Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is suffering an unusual bout of grey weather and rain for this time of year so not many pictures of the landscape for you, but a small selection of some things that I liked as I made my way around. I think they capture the spirit.

It’s still a superb place to visit. Like Ireland, they are used to the bad weather and so have a vibrant indoors culture. A bubbling local brewing culture and lots of vineyards pair beautifully with great local seafood. Live traditional music and jazz sits comfortably beside.

Looking forward to getting back here in the summer sometime too. I would love to head up to Cape Breton and also over to Newfoundland. It has to be done, right?

Great coffee and a cookie as big as my head at Two If By Sea, Dartmouth

The Chamber of Commerce in Shelburne (a very small place!)




    • Hello Matthew! Yes – they are superb with scallops but just perfect on their own simply cooked in butter. :)

    Its all beautiful and rather quaint. I love it. Yes you must head on to Newfoundland and at some point, Prince Edward Island.

    Beautiful images! Thank you for visiting Nova Scotia. We wish we could have welcomed you on the Authentic Seacoast this visit, but we know you’ll be back for more :) See you next time! Doug at the Authentic Seacoast

  3. Beautiful! Cape Breton is definitely worth a visit – some amazing scenery in the north and east especially. I still get a little bit drooly remembering the fresh crab I ate there. Would love to go back on a foraging trip!

    • Cape Breton is very high on my list but time is short this trip. Great seafood here indeed!

    Too bad the weather was so crummy for you! Nova Scotia is a wonderful place to visit (or live!) and the food can be truly exceptional.

Over to you! Your comments - I would love to hear from you :)
