On the South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, the town of Mahone Bay was founded in 1754 by a mixture of Dutch, German and English families who settled the town and surrounding countryside. They were farmers and fishermen who found the sheltered waters of the Bay to be an ideal place for their settlement. This photo is one of the landmarks pictures of the town with it’s row of churches along the waterfront. Innumerable people have taken the same shot, as the road here is Highway 3, the “Lighthouse Route” that follows the twists and turns of the rugged coastline with it’s many bays,inlets and coves. Only about 60 miles from Halifax, it’s a very popular day trip and you’ll be rewarded with some of the best craft shops, terrific seafood, and the friendliest people you’ll meet anywhere. Spend the day in a place unspoiled by modern times, and unwind. Go for it!
