Great Canadian Road Trip : Digby & The Tall Ships

Having explored the seaside adjunct area of Kejimkujik National Park, we couldn’t wait to see the treasures we would find as we adventured more inland .  It was back to Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site for us where we spent most of the morning. We drove an hour to get to an inland trail and checked out the gorgeous Mill Falls trail.


The trail is only 2 kilometres long, so it’s a reasonably short hike, but depending on the time of day, and if you had already explored other trails earlier, two kilometres is a great distance. What a beautiful spot for some quiet reflection or just to connect with your family over lunch.


We stopped for a late lunch at a popular food truck called Kalen’s Takeout. It was ridiculously hard to find, Google Maps kept trying to take us somewhere 4 kilometres away. Just ask a local to direct you and you’ll be fine. Good food at decent prices. It was worth the effort of finding it.


From there we drove to Digby to see the Tall Ships. For only 4 hours on one day each year visitors are able to climb aboard the ships and explore. I’ve wanted to check out the Bluenose II for a while and finally got the chance on this trip. Yay!  The sun was out in all her glory and it was a stunning day to explore downtown Digby. There were lots of activities including music, crafts, and a little market.

The funniest part of the day was when we went clam digging on a local beach only to later see the sign that all the shellfish in that area is not safe for human consumption. 😳😳. Glad we saw the sign!  Always check with a local source to make sure a river is safe to go clamming.

We spent the night at the Headly House by the sea.   Beautiful property about 7 minutes from downtown Digby.

Our road trip was an enormous success and we can’t wait until our next adventure on Canada’s East Coast.
