Great Canadian Road Trip: Crescent Beach & Kejimkujik National Park

After visiting the most photographed lighthouse in Canada, sampling some delicious East Coast food, and being charmed in old town Lunenburg, our adventures with the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox led us to Crescent Beach and Kejimkujik National Park.

In the morning we visited Crescent Beach, a very long sandy beach and a perfect place to spend the day. We drove the car on the beach all the way to the end and found a secluded spot. It wasn’t the warmest water but we all took the plunge – some of us for longer than others. In the evening we hiked at Kejimkujik National Park. For most of the day we could look around for miles and not see anyone else, it was absolutely perfect. After the frantic pace of life in Toronto, it is lovely to enjoy the calm and peace that the East Coast offers.

After a gorgeous morning at the beach including a picnic lunch, we went to explore Kejimkujik National Park Seaside Adjunct.  The park is absolutely stunning and the trails are very easy for the whole family to walk.  The hike is well worth the treasures at the end – if you are lucky you will see seal sunbathing.  We did the Harbour Rock Trail which was an easy and beautiful walk – the kids could both easily do the hike.

After another full day, we stopped at Seaside Seafoods for dinner. The clams and scallops were deep fried but we asked if we could have the scallops steamed instead. I will never understand why clams are deep fried on the east coast when they are so delicious simply steamed.  This restaurant was perfect for kids because you can have your meal on the picnic tables while your kids play.  We opted for dinner on the patio where we could still see them playing in the little play area.  The people here were very warm I’d recommend stopping if you are in the area.
