I promised to show you Nova Scotia. Let's go to Cape Split.
One morning, we got up early to drive to the Annapolis Valley.
We wound our way through the valley, fields of corn and early-morning storm clouds, out to a little piece of land that juts into the Bay of Fundy.
We walked over patches of mud and tree roots and dry path until we reached the point where the cape actually splits.
We settled into the grass and Queen Anne's lace that carpets the top of the cape, and had our picnic lunch: blueberries, carrots, smeerkaas (spreadable Gouda cheese!), smoked maple sausage and a bit of mint dark chocolate we'd picked up along the way.
