As is many places in Nova Scotia local roads can be steep and your car will speed up beyond cruise velocity setting. Local roads have also sudden sharp bends, hidden driveways, limited crest views and rain puddles. Reasons enough to drive with pace and pay attention to the signs.

It is easily reachable from the town center.

Just 2 days after my Windsor visit the newspaper headline struck me:
PUMPKIN KING DILL DIES.
Howard Hill died at age 73 on May 20, 2008.
At King Street you'll find the local park with a monument in remembrance of WW1.
Furthermore there's a bandstand (not the only one in the village).
