Start of Travels on the South Shore, Nova Scotia

On our drive from Halifax to Chester Basin, these are some of the sights we enjoyed on our coastal drive on the Bluenose Coast.
A common scene of fishing and sailboats

Checking out one of many beach areas

A perfect place to live

Near Chester we found this interesting stonework (wall and the sheep) in the garden of a local artist.  The tree in the background is made of driftwood.

A closer look at the driftwood tree.

It's been 15 years since Swissair Flight 111 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off
Nova Scotia, killing all people on board.  On September 2, 1998, Nova Scotians
near the coast felt their homes tremble as the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 plane
bound for Geneva, Switzerland crashed into the water a few kilometers off the
shore of Peggy's Cove, which is just across the water from the South Shore.

We visited this Monument showing the names (229) of all those who died.

The Seaside Shanty Restaurant
Don't let looks deceive you.  They serve a wonderful chowder and delicious fish cakes. The Blueberry Grunt dessert was "wow"!  We will definitely dine here again.
More to come of the South Shore of Nova Scotia...
