We flew into Halifax around lunchtime, picked up our rental car, and hit the road! LD booked a lovely B&B in Lunenburg (The Ashlea House) but we decided to stop at picturesque Peggy's Cove on the way. We had a great lunch at The Sou'wester by the lighthouse, including some yummy lobster dip! Lobster was always on the menu this trip. You could even get it at gas stations.
And to top it all off, we had a walking path direct to the waterfront and all of Lunenburg's local restaurants and shops. Our first night, we toasted over a bottle of prosecco at Trattoria della Nonna, one of the nicest spots in town. (The orange building is part of the colorful "UNESCO Fresco".) The food was outstanding, and the ambience was great to kick off our first day in Nova Scotia.
