Labour Day weekend: the last hurrah of summer in Nova Scotia

by Krista Spurr, on Wed, 29 Aug 2012 | No Comments

Friends, the last official long weekend of summer is upon us. If you're like me, you're lamenting the return a more "normal" school and work routine in September. Luckily, there are a few more days to experience the best of summer in Nova Scotia.

Oh, gorgeous (secret) beach, I'm going to miss you most of all...

Everyone who lives here is pretty much agreed summer 2012 is going to go down in history as one of the best summers ever. With days of sunshine for weeks at a time, the weather has been beyond amazing and many of us have take full advantage of it by getting out of the house - either to fun places in our own backyards or on the other side of the province. I've made a real effort to be a "hometown traveler" on the weekends, and, considering I'm car-less and limited to Saturdays and Sundays, I've managed a fair amount of adventure, ideas which you are welcome to borrow for your own long weekend plans:

Yet, somehow, I didn't get around to everything I wanted to do this summer:

Okay, I admit the To Do list may have been ... ambitious. As we go into the last long weekend of summer, I'm looking for your help in filling in the blanks of my summer of Nova Scotia adventure. How are you going to spend Labour Day weekend? What should I do? Fire away in the comments, or tweet at me @bitesizedtravel.

The good news is there is plenty of Nova Scotia to enjoy as we move into fall. In the meantime, I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the good bits. As we head into the holiday weekend, have fun, play safe, and be on the lookout for adventure!
