@hammerhead was the solo male hiker with 6 women on this Crystal Crescent - Pennant Point Provincial Park hike. For the most part he and I hung around at the back, savouring the surprises and pleasures: started out with overcast skies and ended in full, hot sun!
The stark contrasts of white and blue - beauty of this shoreline from Green Bay Beach to Broad Cove Beach. This file http://sshikers.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/2/6/11265208/broad_cove_hike_map.pdf is the most current map I could find of this linear trail. We wanted to hike over 12K, added on some distance at each end and hiked both ways of the trail.
Short rest before the final push into Wolfville - our radar set on Paddy's Pub for some sustenance. With @hammerhead
Out of the trees @hammerhead checking out the view - stopped by this pond for lunch. Surprisingly, bugs weren't an issue: glad we got on the trail early (9-ish) as temperature heated up as the day progressed.
@hammerhead and I along with four other hikers enjoyed a 22Km trek from Falmouth to Wolfville, NS - much of the route followed an old stagecoach road (trying to visualize how 'comfortable' it would be jolting along in a stagecoach!): now used by ATV's, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and hikers! Much of the trail was walking under a canopy. Stopped here for a snack: @hammerhead has discovered he's missing the bottom portion of one of his trekking poles, lost somewhere between here and the trunk of the car. Mourning the probable end of the lengthy relationship with this 'gear-friend :))
