Thursday 1st September 2011…..rabbit, rabbits, rabbits!!!

My Mum always told me the first chance I had on the first of the month to say the above it would bring me good luck!!!!!

The usual morning and then off at 9am to find the waterfalls that I had read about in a Magazine and saved the article.

It was about a 20 minute drive from where I overnighted but way out on the back roads

The article said the trail was a bit uneven very steep about one km and ropes needed on the last drop to the falls….I found out all of this was true!!!

It was well worth the trouble the falls were quite lovely especially this early in the morning!!!

In town I found the Red Shoe Pub which is owned by the famous musical family the Rankin's.  Found out David Rankin is performing tonight at 10pm……so then found a great spot by the water that will be good for an overnight stop and close enough for me to walk to the pub!

I then moved down the road a few more miles to the town of Port Hood where the ocean is reported to be the warmest in Nova Scotia…
