Photos of Nova Scotia, So Far – The Glitter!

Despite the mechanical issues, we have managed to see some gorgeous places (and lots of industrial parks!). Two weekends, when the garage was closed, we headed off for short jaunts along the coast for a few days. Plus we had one majorly false start – “Woohoo, we’re finally off!” we thought. Oh, how wrong we were. Cue massive gearbox leak and overheating engine; the a weekend stuck in a campsite (albeit a pretty one), and having to cycle to (another) industrial park to find a temporary fix for the gearbox so we could get back to the Gary and the garage. 10 days later we are still at the garage trying to fix the problem. One day we will leave Dartmouth for the rest of Canada!!

Our new camsite friend, Cyril, sharing his mechanical wisdom.  We were on our way to Digby to eat scallops and see whales when we sprung a leak in our gear box.  We stopped for the weekend, before returning to Dartmouth and Gary.  For the 3rd time in less than 3 weeks.  Highbury Gardens Campground, New Minas, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.
