A Quaint artist town with some unique vendors to sample. Views excellent and there is a unique photo opportunity provided by a gentleman from my hometown. A must see.

In a quaint little traditional Nova Scotian village. Absolutely gorgeous views. Fun to climb all over the rocks and walk right up to the lighthouse. Great local restaurant right there and some unique shops to visit. Would definitely recommend.

Access to the rocky shoreline around the lighthouse is always open. Most of the restaurants and shops should also be open in September.
