  • and there's quite a bit to do here there's a  creamery to visit there's a brew house to visit  

  • there's also what was the other thing there's  a winery you want to visit oh the winery yeah  

  • the winery which is but that's not in this  town that's that's continuing north but  

  • the main thing is that there's a train  that you can stay overnight in and also  

  • potentially have a meal and also where we're  staying we're close to an old gristmill a  

  • provincial park there's a maple farm a maple  sugar farm where you can buy maple products it's  

  • amazing there's just so much to do in and around  this area so i mean we're just gonna try and see  

  • and do as much as we can today also enjoy our  cabin experience too so it's best of both worlds

  • guys so we have walked down to the creamery  square heritage society lots to do here we're  

  • just visiting on the wrong day it would appear  so basically here you have a farmer's market  

  • on saturdays on saturdays there's the creamery  building there's a general store general store and  

  • an art center art center and there's a bandstand  where apparently they put on performances  

  • and you can listen to music yeah now all of  the buildings have very different schedules  

  • but it seems like saturday is the day to be here  yeah so if you visit Tatamagouche Nova Scotia  

  • make it on a weekend because it just  looks super cool like i'd love to go  

  • into these buildings and just browse through  the different vendors the shops yeah i agree  

  • even though even though we couldn't go inside  it was just fascinating to walk down here and  

  • take pictures yeah also it's it's at a great  location like just meters away from the river  

  • so it is a windy day let's acknowledge the wind  let's acknowledge the wind hello hello wind

  • cool find of the day we're on the trans-canada  trail we are who would have thought that that  

  • is amazing i mean that's the national trail  line i know it's enormous coast to coast  

  • exactly this is a great little trail  and as you can see by this train sign  

  • we're just moments away from being at  the train accommodation and restaurant so  

  • i mean it's gonna be awesome we're hoping to have  lunch there hoping it's open fingers crossed i  

  • don't want to be over two this morning but um this  is a wonderful trail great for for walking also  

  • great for biking we've seen a lot of people using  it we saw someone walking their dog we also saw  

  • people on their bikes and so yeah question for  you would you ever bike the trans canada trail  

  • or a portion of it i'd love to and my dad would  enjoy that even more he's more of a biker than me  

  • so that would be an awesome trip oh that could  be a future yeah father's day you need to budget  

  • to budget like probably half a year for that  starting the spring finish in the fall right  

  • okay so we came to the train station we're not  able to dine in the wagons at the moment but  

  • they have a lovely outdoor seating area so we got  some food from take out i got the fish cakes how  

  • do those look it looks real good let's see you  want to check those out yum oh wow oh wow and  

  • you got uh chips and salsa yeah homemade chips  and salsa on the side oh you get a little bun  

  • it looks like a little scone you ended up getting  

  • you got the beans you got the maple beans  maple syrup beans oh that looks real good  

  • and i got a pulled pork sandwich another  impressive looking meal that's a bit of coleslaw  

  • some chips and salsa yum fantastic looking lunch  huh yum yum yum yum yum yum oh that looks awesome  

  • looks so good comfort food here at the train  station huh uh-huh gotta love that um is it mm-hmm  

  • what kind of a sauce is it sweet barbecue  oh yum look at that it feels perfect  

  • it was perfect with a kind of a sandwich  oh yeah um that is garlic cream is it  

  • raw garlic my friends nothing better this is  just an amazing experience like adam a goose guys  

  • sam and i are already talking about how we  need to come back and book a night on the train  

  • we seriously i don't know why we didn't  do that we'll literally do that sometime  

  • yeah yeah it'll be one of the most unique days  we'll have ever had for sure for sure super pumped  

  • to try mcniel i mean one of the my favorite  foods in the maritimes and this dates back to  

  • my childhood when my grandmother used to make me  homemade beans often made with maple or molasses  

  • they are just i'd rather have that than a dessert  they're so sweet and delicious and so for us to  

  • have homemade maple beans it's fantastic but  before i try those i'm going to try the main  

  • thing that we ordered here which is the fish  cakes so it's potato fish and parsley flakes and  

  • i have a feeling you're meant to dip it into this  it's kind of like a chutney isn't it look at that  

  • this really has a nice soft  texture to it in your mouth  

  • really tasty what i'm most interested in  is trying these maple beans look at these  

  • guys i'm going to stir that around for  you just you can see how thick that is  

  • i think that's probably one of the most  canadian dishes ever beans never syrup ever yeah

  • oh pure maple syrup in there  

  • i'd rather have this than a slice of cheesecake  that's how good it is to me it tastes like a  

  • dessert even though it's um it's served with the  the main portion of a meal it's just so sweet and  

  • i mean it's also salted too it just checks off  so many boxes ultimate comfort food in my opinion

  • what a lunch just love the  setting the food was fantastic  

  • and yeah just where we ended up parking  we were kind of on the opposite end of  

  • the town so we were able to walk along the main  street and we noticed some really cool places  

  • we're honestly not going to have time to visit  because we still want to go to the winery  

  • we want to go hiking and we want to go to  maybe some mills and maybe the the maple  

  • syrup production place but what we did notice  was there was a mario pizza place there's also  

  • a chocolate here some artisanal ice cream and the  chowder house who could forget the chowder house  

  • so plenty to do in this town we've just got an  afternoon to do all the stuff we still want to do

  • more

  • okay guys so we made it to yoast vineyards and  we're doing a little wine tasting here you can try  

  • three different wines for free um i'm going  for all whites sam's going to be doing all  

  • reds and then we're going to choose  our favorites get a bottle for my dad  

  • and yeah so right now i'm trying the pinot grigio  cheers that's good that's very light i like that  

  • that type of wine yeah all right number two  going for another white title day cheers

  • oh that's good yeah i get a bit of a like a pear  

  • aroma no yeah this is the one i tried in halifax  at one of the restaurants i don't remember which  

  • one anymore maybe the bicycle theme that's the  one maybe yes that's where you had it one of my  

  • all-time favorites last but not least last  but not least number three selkie sure cheers  

  • yeah i do feel the bubbles on this one  yeah a little bit more tropical do you  

  • have a favorite amongst the three i think the  last two oh yeah last two i've just tried yeah  

  • and salty for one maybe even this one oh nice  it just it smells like summer sweet and tropical  

  • that's very good i'm trying the shiraz cabernet  yeah getting some blackberry notes and smoke  

  • this would pair very nicely with the typical  barbecues we love to have with your dad

  • next up is a lucy coleman  this is a medium body red  

  • oh yes that's much lighter  

  • a bit fruitier as well it's really smooth this  is definitely something you'd pair with a bit of  

  • a lighter meal i do like the shiraz a bit more  though number three so next up we've got the  

  • great red and i love the slogan for it it saysbarbecue find and something interesting about this  

  • is that it's aged with maple wood chips so  i'm interested to see if i can detect that  

  • it's full bodied but it's a little bit sweet too  which i love this is a really really nice wine out  

  • of the three my favorite and i'm surprised that  i like it more than the shiraz it's saying a lot

  • so  

  • so

  • all right we had a really fun wine tasting at  yoast yeah it was so good that we've decided  

  • to go and have an early supper there their cafe  closes at 4. we're gonna be there before four so  

  • basically what we did we did the wine tasting we  got three different bottles of wine and then we  

  • drove over to blue sea beach provincial park right  here on the water a five-minute drive from the  

  • vineyard we enjoyed a little walk it was a little  bit seaweedy i've got to say lots of algae on the  

  • shore i did find a few areas that i could walk  and i got my knee salty day without getting myself  

  • completely wet sam didn't wet his pants guys yeah  i mean yeah it seems to that was becoming a daily  

  • ritual what i did i just like kneeled into the  water this time instead of going out deeper  

  • but anyways it was great um it seems like every  single day we find a way to walk along the beach  

  • and that's what i love about nova scotia  canada it's so fascinating that you can be  

  • in a vineyard in one moment and then like a few  minutes later down by the beach so on the beach  

  • but anyways now we are back in the car and we're  going to return to yoast vineyards to eat other  

  • the sea grape i'm gonna have a little wine  with my dinner i'm driving guys so none for me

  • all right from the vineyard to the brewery  here we are we were planning on coming here  

  • but i walk by here and just look so awesome and  we actually saw a youtube video about this place  

  • the other night i'm like i gotta come in here  and have a beer and get a hat of course too so  

  • we're currently at Tatamagouche brewing and this  place is set in a former butcher shop that's right  

  • they've been open for six years and they've got  a number of things on tap um today i've gone for  

  • the red so i'm gonna try that sure cheers oh  it's nice and refreshing i mean to be honest  

  • it's quite humid today isn't it yeah we thought  it was going to be quite a bit cooler but the  

  • temperature even though it's overcast it's very  humid so i'm thirsty um this is just the perfect  

  • perfect drink to be having the end of the day so  many excellent craft breweries in nova scotia as  

  • we've discovered traveling and distilleries  too i might add so if you're visiting around  

  • nova scotia canada be sure to check out well  obviously Tatamagouche brewing company but  

  • also the other ones in local towns as well  it's been one of our favorite things to do

  • well guys it is time for the grand tour so come  closer come on in we are going to give you a tour  

  • of this cabin in the woods here in  Tatamagouche we've been staying about  

  • 15 minutes outside of town we are surrounded by  forest we've been told that bears skunks foxes  

  • all sorts of animals roam here so yes we are in  the wilderness and we found a really cozy space  

  • very woodsy so come on in we've booked this place  for two nights already slept here yesterday we  

  • have one more night ahead of us and first of  all voila welcome to the bedroom first thing  

  • that caught my attention the fairy lights i think  that's a very very nice touch we'll close the door  

  • so it's not so echoey for you but yeah pretty cool  space don't you think yeah i love it look at the  

  • wood paneling everywhere yes it's an all wood  interior it just feels very homey rustic cozy  

  • and check out the cool art in the corner lots of  cool art yeah so we've got a map from burkina faso  

  • i'm guessing our host has spent some time in  west africa there's lots of artwork you're  

  • gonna notice it throughout the cabin but some very  cool paintings here oh this i really like it's a  

  • turtle lamp oh that's our turtle lamp that we have  here um then on this side we've got our little  

  • living area it's more of like a futon turns into  additional sleeping space if you need it lots of  

  • pillows extra blankets one really cool thing about  this cabin yeah check out the stove that's amazing  

  • huh it serves two purposes like it'll warm up the  space in the winter time um but you can also cook  

  • with it if you feel like it shows the different  components where there's stones inside come on in  

  • so this is where you would do your baking there's  stones inside yes okay i tried explaining to sam  

  • when it's cold because these are stories i've  heard from my dad but it when it was cold back in  

  • the day they used to put bricks in the oven warm  them up then wrap them in newspaper and stick them  

  • in the bed at your feet kind of like a hot water  bottle but using bricks and here i noticed they  

  • have these giant stones so it made me wonder maybe  they stick them in the oven warm them up and then  

  • you know talk them in bed but sam doesn't believe  me oh do you know that seems like a bit of a tall  

  • tale no you're probably right though so yeah it's  not very often you get to see one of these this is  

  • quite the collectible and it's from elmira ontario  so there you go it's not that far from us nice  

  • maybe we'll get one of those someday maybe you  know yeah dining area this is where we had our  

  • breakfast this morning some oatmeal then we have  this other little cooking station we don't have an  

  • actual electric stove yeah but we do have this  element um so yeah if we wanted to cook we've  

  • just been going out to restaurants let's be honest  big retro microwave microwave huge yep um over in  

  • this corner we've got a bit of a book collection  happening i love the books they have i thought  

  • you would like this one here look at this wait  the birds of nova scotia wood stove cookery no  

  • way yeah and look on the cover they have the old  wood stove oh that's so if you want to try recipes  

  • give us give us chicken oh toffee bar i saw toffee  bars and the one i thought you might like was this  

  • one here the bird's yes yeah sam knows i'm a bit  of a bird enthusiast i'm always looking for birds  

  • and one level up show us what we got there ohvery cool lantern yes and candies most importantly  

  • it says one treat a day enjoy and there's all  kinds of chocolates candies toffees yeah wow  

  • yeah that's very nice of them it would taketake some discipline to limit yourself to one huh  

  • can you limit yourself to one a day i'd probably  clear that pretty quickly here's the question yeah  

  • and then we have a super spacious kitchen likesaid we haven't been cooking because we've been  

  • visiting wineries breweries different eateries  yeah so we've been eating and drinking and being  

  • very merry but if we wanted to cook look check  out that knife coffee it's like a magnetic strip  

  • that's so cool oh and now it doesn't want to stick  with it there we go it's demagnetized yeah they  

  • left us like coffee sugar lots of tea coffee maker  kettle everything you could possibly need and yeah  

  • more counter space where we've just dumped  our computers so that's kind of the main space  

  • but then we have the bathroom on the other  side it's the bathroom did sam put away his  

  • underwear that he is i did but i think you you  did a good job of filming it to embarrass me  

  • welcome to the bathroom come on in it's quite  spacious then the tiny house bathrooms we've  

  • had recently um so yeah walk-in shower hot water  we haven't been using baby wipes like we normally  

  • do what a change drastic change sink mirror we  have our toilet with a very cool cover it's all  

  • like blue glass and seashells let's take  a look at that it sure is it sure is well  

  • and we're on a septic tank so got to be extra  careful what you put down there yeah so yeah  

  • that's kind of the main living space and then  we do have like little is it a porch what is it  

  • yeah it's a porch like a sun room it's a  sun it's a sunroom it's a maritime sun room  

  • maritime sun room yes this is so typical we're  going to ignore the mess we kind of have going on  

  • exploding suitcases you can't actually see it too  bad there's still a little mess on the on on there  

  • no no look and dirty laundry but um yeahlovely seating area so that you can enjoy  

  • the space even during the cooler months  lots of windows so the heat would come in  

  • warm up the place yeah so what did you  think of the outside part of the property  

  • you know it's very rural like i feel very isolated  and very far away from my neighbors it feels very  

  • quiet very peaceful so this is a very cool  cozy cabin in the forest here in canada right  

  • yes yes so it's been good we hope you enjoyed the  tour yes oh and it's on airbnb i'll i'll leave  

  • a link in the description i think i normally do  but if you want to find it we'll put a link to it

  • you know grains to make flour that type of deal  what an idyllic spot yeah i mean this is a slice  

  • of paradise especially with the light shining  on the mill yeah it's reflecting in the water  

  • almost as beautifully as it is on the building  it's amazing at the moment yeah it's a nice  

  • little spot and it's very quiet there's no one  else around no there isn't just the two it's
