It was chilly yesterday morning and Jack Frost was still hanging around at 10:00am!
Cameron. Too funny.
The town of Shelburne is located on a picturesque inlet.
Shelburne side street.
Still frost on the ground!
Old buildings on the Shelburne waterfront.
From Shelburne, the tourist route in this area is called "The Lighthouse Route" and it takes you through all of the little coves and peninsulas of Nova Scotia's South Shore. You can of course skip sections and take the main highway, but there is nothing to see on the main highway. All of the scenic spots are on The Lighthouse Route.

We like exploring the parks in the off season when there's nobody around. One of Canada's national parks is located in this area, Kejimkujik National Park has a seaside section to it and we had never been there before.
Kejimkujik National Park. The locals simply call it "Keji".
The buildings were all locked up at this time of year, but they did have an outhouse to use.
No, we did not come across any bears!
What do we do in parks? We go for a hike!
Cameron walked quite a distance by himself, but eventually Grandpa put him in the carrier.

And, there's the seaside!
Seals at Kejimkujik park. These two were pretty far offshore and this is using all 42x of our zoom lens!
Time to head back to the car.
There's a lot more to see along the The South Shore. But our time with Cameron was running short and we had to get back to Lindsey and Justin's house by supper time. We continued a bit further along the Lighthouse Route, but got back on the main highway at Bridgewater. Besides, we had been to Lunenburg and area back in May of 2011.
Again, we could spend two weeks just on The South Shore alone. So many little coves and beaches to explore.
