    Go for a walk and pick up shells... paddle in the water... enjoy the beauty. This beach was at Port Maintland.
    Poor Betty has so many beaches to choose from and as she says, there are only so many day trips out that she can make a summer!

    You MUST Go to the Lighthouse!

    After we went to Sandford, and around the area of Lake Darling, we then headed down to Cape Forchu and the lighthouse. It is 90+ Feet high, and is a great place to go for photography, for enjoying the beauty of nature, for having a cup of tea at the Mug Up Tea Room (covered in a separate tip), and for seeing where the Bay of Fundy and the Atlantic Ocean connect.

    Yarmouth Museum

    Betty took me to the Yarmouth County Museum and Archives which is located in a former church, built of beautiful Granite.
    The museum contains a real mix of items - there is info on the shipping, on the native history, costumes, tools, glass, toys and china. You could spend a couple of hours going through it all in detail, or, as we had to do, due to time constraints, zip through and get a feel for it all.
    Right next door to the Museum is the Pelton-Fuller house, which was the summer home for Alfred Fuller (The Fuller Brush Man)
    Museum is $3 adult, $1 for 14-18 yrs old, $0.50 for 6-13 yrs old, $6 for a Family
    Combined with the Pelton-Fuller House - is $5 adult, $2 for 14-18 yrs old, $1 for 6-13 yrs old, $10 for a Family
    There is a discount if you are a CAA/AAA member ($2.50 per adult)

    The Cat

    It was a lovely day, so we pulled into a parking lot by the water, and waited to see the 4pm Bay Ferry pull out. It sure moved, but apparently due to a fatal crash, it can not go as fast up on its "skis" as it used to, leaving the harbour. (Wouldn't you think the boat operator it collided with would've had some sense about staying out of the lane? The big guy can't manouever as easily as the smaller fishing boat.... and people, boats don't have brakes!!)

    Water sports

    Because this area is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Fundy, as well as being a veritable treasure trove of lakes and rivers, it is easy to find places and rentals for camping, canoeing, kayaking, swimming. There are occasional organized beach days hosted by the Municipality of Yarmouth, with sand castle contests, etc. You can charter tours of the harbour, which include visits to areas frequented by a variety of seabirds, and seals. It is also possible to go sea kayaking, but I think that has to be booked ahead.

    lots of parking along by the waterfront to check out the action on the water, and to stop at one of the many restaurants, pubs/bars, and places to enjoy the outdoors.

    This was a memorial to the fishermen who have been lost at sea. There is another placque there as well to two young girls who were swept off the rocks at the lighthouse by a rogue wave!

    While Betty and I were by the lobster boats, we saw a man fishing with just a line. He caught a flounder or a sole... some flat fish!
