Day 5 in Nova Scotia

Today we went for a walk around Chester, one of the prettiest and oldest (incorporated in 1759) communities in Nova Scotia.  

Samuel was snuggled up in his Baby Bjorn carrier, complete with hat to ward off the wind,

The village is so picturesque with colorful flowers and  fences dividing the yards.  

The ocean bay nestles in amongst the houses and wharfs are common at the waterfront lots.

The ferry to Tancook Island was moored beside this working boat.  The boats are always painted in bright colors.

This is the Baptist church where Tyler's dad is the minister.  It is a heritage building.

Right in the middle of town, off to the side of one house, this load of split wood had been delivered.  It had rained for about  2 minutes but stopped so we hurried on home. 

I have more pictures that I'll share as the days go by.  It really was a lovely afternoon - and Samuel even enjoyed the bit of shopping that we did.  He's really good that way :))
