Day 2 – Shelbourne

On day 2 of our vacation, we woke to a weather forecast of heavy rain (25mm) with periods of fog.

That translated into a viewless drive around the coast, in the fog, and pouring rain. Pouring might be too weak of a word. As I’ve told you Ontario folk before, rain drops are wetter here in Nova Scotia (yes I am serious) and when it pours you want an ark.

On the way into Liverpool, I wanted to find the Bowater Mersey pulp and paper mill. Using not much more than our noses, we were able to find the main front gate, but the fog blocked out any more of the mill.

Shelbourne is a really nice old town. I just couldn’t get enough of the big old east coast houses we saw in almost every town. Shelbourne seems to have preserved much of its history – especially by preserving its old waterfront.

In between downpours, here are some photos from Shelbourne, mostly from inside the truck:
