Heading out for a weekend car-camping close to home exploring a park new to us. This park overlooks Port Joli Harbour on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. https://www.novascotia.com/places-to-stay/campgrounds/thomas-raddall-provincial-park/788 Anticipating outdoor activities - kayaking and hiking. Cooking camp food and reading a book :-)

The selling point of our weekend at this provincial park, less than two hours from home, was its miles of beaches and beautiful woods and rocky, interesting shorelines. It had nice camping spots in the trees (maybe not private enough, as some fav drinks were stolen from our coolers- first time ever!), adequate washrooms although the outdoor biffys needed some maintenance. A treat was hearing the seals groaning and 'talking' at night in our tent - and paddling with them in their 'pool'.
Kayaked the opposite direction down the shoreline - final point was Sandy Shore. Plenty of chop to the waves, a rocky shoreline with boulders protruding in many places in spite of a near-high tide. No photos :-( My hands were on my paddle the whole time - this view is from our hike that afternoon to that same Sandy Shore Beach.
