It's fun to look at a map and try to imagine what the road will be like. The south eastern shore of Nova Scotia looks like it's been shredded by the claws of a bear, and the thin yellow line of road winds in and out along the jagged coastline past towns with crazy names like Ecum Secum. With a stop needed before we'd make it to Halifax, we routed for this coast and found a beautiful stretch of highway lined by gray boulders trimmed with a rich brown-yellow seaweed. The first campground option included the words "and Trailer Park" in its name. Pass. The second looked like an abandoned summer camp where even the local sheriff is too scared to go. We slowed briefly and then moved on. But the third sat out on a bright spit of land surrounded by a spectacular bay, had an unserviced site on the grass right next to the playground and had a crab trap down on the dock which, when loaded up with ham, paid off within minutes every time. Wynne even caught this one on the top of the trap! #childhoodunplugged #visitnovascotia #novascotia #igotcrabsinnovascotia #airstreamwithkids #familytravel #travelwithkids #crabbykids
