We sat outside and had breakfast this morning - a first for this trip. It was warm with a little cloud which mostly dispersed as the day progressed. We got ready and set off towards Yarmouth to the south west. It was a lovely drive with almost constant sea views for the first part of the way stopped at a few places for photos and absorb the beauty. We passed some amazing Churches. The area is Acadian, settled by returning people who had been evicted. Many took up the government's offer of 40 acres and settled in. They built these Churches and they remain as tremendous monuments to the devotion of the people. Their loyalty is shown by prominently displaying the Acadian flag It was a very relaxing drive with lovely views.

We arrived in Yarmouth and stopped at Tim Hortons where we had a light lunch. We then parked and had a walk round the waterfront and main street. We stopped at the Tourist Information and spoke to a very helpful lady who highlighted the things we should watch for.

We returned to the car and drove back to Digby and the hotel. We had dinner downstairs and it was again very nice, but, unfortunately, I probably ate too much and suffered from my hiatus hernia. It is the first time I have had it since we returned from Portugal in early March. Christine & Nan did puzzles while I dealt with the symptoms.

We plan to explore the Digby Neck tomorrow. This is a long narrow peninsula with two island at the end
