No wind, no waves but 1-2m swell so a roly 5 hour trip under engine.
More impressive coastal properties, some very unusual. Not sure whether 1or 2 here. Fabulous views.
The beach is in the Kejimkujik Seaside National Park, separate to the main park 100km inland, and reputedly one of the most beautiful in Nova Scotia. It was once a hidden gem, but thanks to social media no longer “hidden”.
It was closed to the public over the long weekend at the end of June due to considerable “bear activity along the shore”. About to go ashore for a walk along the beach. Have read up on what to do if we encounter bears! Had bear drill on board and have practised playing dead. Completely out of bear spray though.
Will put in the washboards and lock ourselves in tonight- just in case......
Careful navigation following the buoys between the rocks brought us to the anchorage. 5 more boats at anchor on the other side of Mink Island. Scot Free is on her own. Very pretty spot.
