Nova Scotia Cabot Trail

We had a fantastic holiday in Nova Scotia. It was even better than we had expected. The weather was great, only one drizzly day & some very heavy rain one night when we were at Truro.

Every year we travel with Complete North America we think there cannot be a better holiday. Wrong! We have been back from Canada for two weeks now but I think I left part of me behind
