These photos are ones I took on my trip to Nova Scotia last summer. They were taken in Blomidon Provincial Park and along the backroads leading to the park. The park is only a 40 minute drive north of Wolfville, a pretty university town that begs a few days of exploration. The park makes a fantastic family outing as there’s nothing that beats mud when you’re a kid and this park has lots of it especially at low tide where you can walk for miles on the mud flats.
In Blomidon Provincial Park you can see the world’s highest tides. Be sure to look at the tide charts before you visit. A falling tide is ideal. And beware how fast it comes up. You never want to get stranded.
It was a beautiful summer evening, a few days after the summer solstice when I was there. Looking back I can’t get over how pretty the area is and how colourful the backroads are in the fading light of a summer evening. The park is perfect for enjoying an evening picnic.
Have you ever visited the Blomidon area?
