For our 40th birthdays (Colin's in July, mine in September), we wanted a sweatshirt vacation. Nothing tropical or hot. But cool, sparse and active. We'd seen a few pictures of Nova Scotia and it looked beautiful - underpopulated, clean and spacious. And that's exactly what we found. Lots of space to think, clear out our minds, and populate them with new inspiration.
We hiked trails ending in waterfalls. Swam in cold, clear lakes. And climbed a mountain to see literally breathtaking views. Above are a few pictures I snapped. Click on them to see bigger.
