Our Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island adventure begins as we travel to South Portland, Maine for an overnight stay.
This morning we will depart for St. John, New Brunswick, for our afternoon ferry crossing to Digby, Nova Scotia. There are a host of fantastic amenities aboard the Digby Ferry including dining and entertainment. Breathe in fresh, salty air from the outdoor seating and viewing area and keep a keen eye on the Bay of Fundy for whales and other marine life. Our lodging for this evening will be at Digby Pines Resort overlooking the Bay of Fundy.
"Ciad Mile Failte!" These are the Gailic words for one hundred thousand welcomes, and we will hear them often during our visit to Nova Scotia! Step foot onto one of the most hotly contested pieces of land on the entire continent which became Canada's first administered National Historic Site in 1917: Fort Anne. The land on which Fort Anne now stands is part of the traditional homeland of the Mi'kmaq. In recent centuries, a succession of Scottish, French, and English settlers clashed over this prize on the banks of Nova Scotia's Annapolis River, often drawing the Mi'kmaq into their conflict. Fort Anne was the site of thirteen attacks, seven change of hands, and the ratification of the Treaty of Boston. Today, you can walk the earthen walls, explore the 1797 Officers' Quarters Museum, and soak up thousands of years of Canadian history. We will make a lunch stop before visiting Grand-Pré National Historic Site. This historic site commemorates the Grand-Pré area as the center of Acadian settlement from 1682 to 1755 and the Deportation of the Acadians, which began in 1755 and continued until 1762. Here we will visit the Acadian Memorial Chapel, the Statue of Evangeline, and the Deportation Cross.
