  • why do you look like you peed your  pants i warned you yeah yeah yeah

  • so audrey accidentally dropped my cone what  

  • happened there i licked it too  hard you looked at it too hard  

  • good morning everyone morning hello hello  greeting once again from nova scotia yes  

  • today we're going on a little bit of a road  trip here in nova scotia south shore we're  

  • going to be heading to lahave islands can't wait  we're going to be doing a cable ferry crossing  

  • we're going to be visiting some beaches doing  some hiking and we're also going to be doing  

  • an attraction that many locals in lunenburg have  been suggesting the ovens the ovens yes we're also  

  • going to hit up lahave bakery apparently it's a  must do whenever you're crossing over on the ferry  

  • so yeah we're pretty pumped for today's outing  we have a beautiful day blue skies great weather  

  • light breeze yeah i'm starting to think that  nova scotia is the sunshine paradise of canada  

  • yeah it sure seems that way it seems day after day  we get nice weather like this i don't know how we  

  • got so lucky so we are gonna hit the road again  we're super close to the ferry we're gonna show  

  • you that crossing and yeah let's do it yeah road  tripping in nova scotia canada guys gotta love it

  • we completely winged this day of road tripping  across the lahave islands but honestly it turned  

  • out to be one of our favorite days on nova  scotia south shore this day was based entirely  

  • on local suggestions and the odd roadside  stop whenever something peaked our interest  

  • we hadn't done much research so we didn't know  what to expect and that was the beauty of it

  • the ferry crossing was quick and easy we crossed  the lahave river from east lahave to lahave how  

  • many times can you say lahave in one sentence this  was a very short crossing to avoid a big detour  

  • through bridgewater and it meant we were ready to  start our island hopping adventure a bit sooner

  • well guys we just got on the ferry and we are  moving like we literally drove on and 30 seconds  

  • later it's like oh we're going we're on our way  i know and normally the ferry is seven dollars  

  • but it is free right now i think because of  the situation that's going on yes oh yeah  

  • a little bit of information there we're  doing this trip in september early september  

  • and yeah apparently it's a super short  crossing just like five or seven minutes  

  • so sam is snapping photos filming some video clips  yeah this is amazing it's nice it's a cable car  

  • fairy yeah but it you know it's the size of uh you  know it's it's not as small as i thought it would  

  • be it could hold approximately 10 to 12 vehicles  9 to 12 vehicles i think and there's also room for  

  • quite a few uh pedestrians and cyclists so you  know i was i was kind of expecting like a raft  

  • of vehicles on the raft because we  did a crossing on lake titicaca from  

  • bolivia to peru or peru to bolivia and honestly  it was kind of sketchy when i saw what what they  

  • put the bus on yeah and don't mind me guys this is  such a short crossing that i'm i'm filming at the  

  • moment you can see i'm you know we're almost  there we'll see you guys on the other side

  • once we got off the ferry we turned left and  hit the lahave bakery right away we'd recommend  

  • arriving around lunch because that's when they  have their full menu featuring smoked salmon  

  • bagels smoked meat paninis breakfast sandwiches  and more we got there a little too early for that

  • all right time to try this all so we have  i'm going to try in the mediterranean wrap  

  • pizza the date square that's  a pretty eclectic lunch but um  

  • yeah one thing i want to mention too is that just  inside of the store it's got this awesome vintage  

  • look the store dates back to the 1800s so they've  got all kinds of interesting artifacts and  

  • decorations inside a pretty cool spot for sure  you can see why people recommend it so highly

  • um oh really tasty try the pizza somebody's  taking a nibble out of the pizza already  

  • who would that have been i don't know our mouth

  • three cheese pizza this is more like  a pizza bun this just hits the spot  

  • it's gonna give us enough energy so we can start  exploring and last but not least the date square

  • oh yeah super thick layer of date that's  

  • that's my favorite item for sure yeah great little  bakery and um nice to be having some lunch here

  • lahave river books is located in the back of the  building and they have an entire section dedicated  

  • to local authors as well as books of local  interest there's also a really nice seating area  

  • out back with picnic benches and chairs so it's  a nice stop before kicking off your lahave island

  • adventure

  • people got tired of old dublin  so they made a new dublin  

  • we're driving through new york we got tired  of old dublin so they made a new dublin  

  • sing along audrey people got tired of old  dublin so they made a new dublin on youtube  

  • all right so we have reached the first stop of  the day we've just arrived at crescent beach  

  • and i've just learned an interesting fact about  this place apparently this is called a tombolo  

  • which is a sandbar that extends from the mainland  off towards an island this particular one  

  • is two kilometers in length and it varies  in width it's between 40 to 65 meters  

  • so yeah we're gonna be driving down here after  we visit the beach and doing a little bit of  

  • island hopping so yeah it should be a lot of  fun observations it smells salty and it smells  

  • seaweedy like i'm thinking of all the adults we  were eating in grand manan just a few weeks ago  

  • doesn't it smell like dolls yes it does it smells  like salty sea wonderful smell i don't know if i'd  

  • say it's wonderful i love it i love it i want  to live by the sea someday guys that's my dream  

  • that's my new dream new dream not mountains now  it's sea mountain dancing even better one unusual  

  • thing that i'm noticing is that people are able to  drive right down to the beach with their vehicles  

  • so if you look over my shoulder like there's a lot  of vans and suvs just parked along the edge and  

  • then you can just walk on down to the water set  up your picnic your little day tent or whatever  

  • and yeah it's just a beautiful area so peaceful  like there's hardly any people out here  

  • that's really cool sam has gone into the water  getting nice and salty out there um but yeah just  

  • a beautiful day to be out on the beach and then  we're gonna continue driving down that way and  

  • begin our island hopping so i'm looking forward  to that why do you look like you peed your pants  

  • i tried my best i hiked up my shorts and it  still didn't work out so i was trying to get  

  • look this is this is the thing i was trying to  get some salt water on my wound that's healing  

  • supposed to be great for it and i went in  a little too much a wave came and splashed  

  • me really good so now i'm soaking i i saw this  happening in slow motion i warned you yeah yeah

  • island number one bush island first  island of the day yeah we're going  

  • to be doing quite a few guys so  yeah this is just the beginning  

  • it's an island hopping day there's a there's a  network of these islands out in this particular  

  • area lahave islands the hay violence this is  particular bush island and we'll see what we find

  • do

  • well island hop and update update all right so we  crossed from crescent beach we sure did over to  

  • bush island then jenkins island then bell island  we have made it to lahave island that's a whole  

  • lot of violence yeah one thing we've discovered  is that it's mostly like cottages and private  

  • property yeah it is that's basically what it  is yeah i mean there's a cool museum that's  

  • being renovated at the moment oh my bad nibbling  on scones too so there's a museum what's that one  

  • called something yeah there's a maritime museum  right on one of these islands you see it as soon  

  • as you cross the bridge because it's painted  orange you won't miss it yeah it's on this one  

  • actually the lahave islands yeah yeah we just  enjoy the drive assistant yes incredibly scenic  

  • lots of forest and these these properties are  fantastic because they haven't been cleared too  

  • much kind of just a pathway to the house and you  still have the ruggedness out here so it does feel  

  • like you're in the forest i love that about it  and it's very hilly like we've been going up some  

  • steep hills getting this little baby up here we  go up and then we go down and then we go yeah and  

  • then we go across the bridge yeah but it's been  a lot of fun like i've enjoyed the island hopping  

  • even though it wasn't what i imagined i thought  there would be like more access to the beaches  

  • but it's more if you have your own vessels like  there's a lot of um docking points for like water  

  • access stuff like that exactly i mean you're  not coming here for a main tourist attraction  

  • when you're coming here for the basically for the  for the drive and it's a beautiful drive and yeah  

  • well worth it in my opinion yeah and you have  crescent beach which is massive and now we're  

  • going to the one that's just north of it yeah  it's wristers it's i think provincial park yeah  

  • yeah or national park no i think provincial  park and that's what's up next yeah  

  • hi hey look at this little slice of paradise  

  • we found on the side of the  road this is just incredible  

  • probably my favorite spot of the whole day it's  just so rugged so beautiful i don't see any homes  

  • i don't see any people i just feel like this is  our own little spot our own little private place  

  • see lots of seaweed yellow seaweed it is seaweed  for sure it's just amazing i just love it here

  • do

  • so we then continued on to wrister's beach  provincial park which sits at the mouth  

  • of the petite riviere the park has a 1.5  kilometer stretch of sheltered sandy beach  

  • plus a boardwalk that runs along an inland marsh

  • hi what did you think of wristers park  racers beach beach park there we go  

  • lots to do here oh yeah so we started  off by going to the beach didn't  

  • the water oh the like a little ice cube but  really nice to walk on the beach i wouldn't swim  

  • i i got a knee-deep i thought it was okaymean yeah it's definitely chilly i'll give  

  • you that yeah i'll give you that but they also  have a really nice boardwalk that goes through  

  • marshland that's really pretty there's a few  forest trails where it's like really mossy and  

  • cool like cooler temperatures yeah also a place  that i think you can go camping there's an rv  

  • area and also plenty of picnic benches andcanteen which sells ice cream and also like  

  • i think fast food like hamburgers and stuff  like that so a great place to bring a family  

  • or to go as a couple or even to come as you're  by yourself because we just love it here  

  • we then hop back on the ferry and headed across  the lahave river but don't worry our canada road  

  • trip wasn't over yet we still had a few more  places we wanted to visit on the drive back  

  • hello whoa whoa he loves putting the camera in  my face hello hey guys back on the ferry back on  

  • the ferry world's quickest crossing basically  we're almost there yes we're heading back to  

  • east lahave and we're going to do a few more stops  along the way before we get back to lunenburg some  

  • nature outdoorsy hikes and that kind of thing  there's another there's another beach to visit  

  • and there's the ovens so the ovens yes you got it  right this time the ovens we've called it right  

  • the pots the ceramics everything it's the ovens  everything other than the ovens finally called  

  • it what it's supposed to be called oh the thingwanted to mention nova scotia's awesome slogan for  

  • its license plate is canada's ocean playground  perfect huh we've been doing that all day

  • turtle's beach was our next stop but  first a little ice cream stop because  

  • who can resist an ice cream truck certainly not us

  • i'm hungry okay this is this is like my  first treat of the day though since lunch  

  • there's lunch we are hungry got ice cream  okay so the one you're trying which is mine  

  • is the mariner sea salt karma and the peanut  butter fudge crunch so glad what do you got  

  • um that's by chocolate which is good yep and some  rainbow that one here is called moon mist yeah  

  • i think it's a flavor for kids because it tastes  like bubble gum i just thought it sounded nice but  

  • realistically the chocolate is better you gotkid's flavor sam is on his second cone so audrey  

  • accidentally dropped my cone what happened there  i was filming i licked it too hard you licked  

  • it too hard the flavor was too delicious and  anyways we went back to benny's ice cream truck  

  • and i'm not sure if it's benny who works  there but let's assume that it is benny  

  • benny's a great guy we offered to pay him forbrand new one and he insisted that we got a cone  

  • gratis so for free and uh what what a nice  person to do that so if you're coming here  

  • enjoy some delicious ice cream and try not to drop  your clothes yeah don't drop your cone like us  

  • but go try some delicious ice  cream at benny's ice cream truck

  • do

  • dude what's going on i feel each and every time  i get over confident i have my pants hold up like  

  • this that's way too much like for youtube okay  yeah i know that's some very pasty legs apologies  

  • for that oh my goodness it's been so nice to get  salty now for what the third or fourth time today  

  • but i'll say this about this beach this has  been the nicest one to go in barefoot just  

  • beautiful fan and the waters are a little  bit clearer once you go in his wall  

  • just love this one this is my favorite hurdles  beach beach yeah at least for the experience of  

  • walking in into the water this is the best one  and beautiful cliffs oh gosh in this direction  

  • look at some of the real estate i mean could you  get a better view and then there's gaff point  

  • in the other direction we're not gonna  make it there um it's like a two hour walk  

  • the the benny said at the ice cream shop  they're probably not even there probably  

  • we're gonna call him benny because that's the  name of the shop so benny said two hours or  

  • 40 minutes we've actually got the ovens left to  visit and it's now for 4 20 so we do need to get  

  • going we are driving to the ovens natural park  we're almost there we just saw the sign for it  

  • and it says this is the site of the 1861 gold  rush there was a gold rush whoa whoa close to  

  • my face in nova scotia canada it also says this is  canada's first campground so that's kind of cool

  • all right guys so we have arrived at the ovens  natural park admission was 10 canadian dollars  

  • per person plus tax 23. we are going to be doing  the sea cave trail so we got a nice little map  

  • with the layout the interesting thing we learned  is like this was the hub of the gold rush here in  

  • nova scotia canada something i had no idea about  1861 gold rush and it says that at the height of  

  • this gold rush there was a whole town here with  over a thousand miners complete with hotels  

  • stores a bank all that is gone now like we're  we're out in nature so that is super crazy  

  • um but yeah we're gonna be walking the trail  learning a bit of the history this is the first  

  • stop we've come to on our hiking trail tucker's  tunnel so let's head on down tucker on down

  • tucker's tunnel here we go as far as you  get there's like a balcony with a little  

  • lookout into the tunnel yeah you getfabulous view that's amazing actually  

  • whoa that is insane so we've come down these steps

  • and now there's like a little balcony area  you can't actually climb down any further  

  • but you get a view of the tunnel you can  see the sea to one side you can it's amazing  

  • this view is just unbelievable wow and it  goes way down to the left as well i can't  

  • even see how far it goes down there look at that  guys the tunnels where people looked for gold

  • come on waves sam's waiting for the magic waves

  • i know you can do it i know you can smash  into the rocks we've just begun this hike  

  • and honestly i can say this is well worth paying  for don't you agree this is blowing us away to be  

  • honest how many people recommended this place  to us quite a few three quite a few yeah this  

  • was the most recommended place when they found  out we were coming to lahave for the day and  

  • um this is on the way to lahave obviously  but uh man it's so cool yeah it's so cool

  • so

  • we're going deeper and deeper into  the dark tunnel to see where it leads

  • oh wow that's pretty awesome  be really careful man whoa

  • so  

  • so

  • so

  • what a day what a day what a day that waslot of fun i've got to say one of the most  

  • fun days of travel i've had in a very long  time yes i mean we've had well not in a long  

  • time we've been having great days of travel  no discussion but that was the most random day  

  • and we didn't have any set plans there was  no must yeah it was just let's go and see  

  • and do as much as we can it was  really our travel style kind of just  

  • winging it driving around looking for good food  a bit of hiking lots of time in nature and yeah  

  • especially this last spot like the ovens i would  so so recommend calling here that was the probably  

  • the most impressive yeah today for sure so cool  and hey i'm turning into a bit of a beach bunny  

  • i used to always joke like i don't like going to  the beach but i love just getting my feet wet and  

  • yeah just going in and getting my my salty  wound wet salty okay people were asking in  

  • a few videos ago what happened to your leg because  you were all bandaged now we're talking about a  

  • woman yeah i had a horrible um fall in odell  park in fredericton and i landed on on sharp  

  • rocks so i took out it wasn't just like skin like  i took out a giant chunk of flesh yeah it probably  

  • should have gone a stitch like even when i whenwent home my dad was horrified so that says a lot  

  • but um it's healing well and the you know what  going to the beach several times today is helping  

  • the ocean has helped yeah so i'd say an ultimate  day of road tripping in nova scotia canada what do  

  • you think it was yeah oh and a little shout out to  the beach just down here canard's beach um so we
