Picture for One Moment.



 Lunch at the Schnitzelhaus Restaurant requires more than one photo, so if you'd like to spend a moment or more on each one, you still won't be wasting too much time at my blog. It's an advantage to visit here, ya know.  ;-)

For the third year in a row, W.P. a.k.a. the future Mr. Pagan Sphinx (a man of the future if there ever was one), and I spent a couple of weeks exploring Nova Scotia's Fundy Shore.

Toward the end of last summer's trip, we drove out to Harbourville from our rented cottage and had lunch at the Scnitzelhaus.  I don't know what possessed me, but I couldn't resist ordering...well... the schnitzel. Even a seafood lover like me gets tired to eating lobster several times a week, because if you buy it straight from a fisherman's house, you pay  $5.50 per pound for lobster. So I ordered the schnitzel. I mean, look at the place!

A piece of Germany or Austria in the middle of nowhere Nova Scotia and the waitress had no idea of its history. So we ate and grooved on the decor. 





W.P. had scallops, the only seafood he'll eat. He's a savvier traveler than I. That 's why he avoided the schnitzel.  :-)  While amusing in there, the dining room was a bit dark and it was a hot day and a walk outside A.S.A.P. was a must.




The shop was closed. It's always fun to walk through a Nova Scotia family-run shop of any kind. Everything is always immaculately displayed, even when it's a collection of mittens that were knitted by the elders at the elder care center. The restaurants and probably the cottages aren't in the least glamorous but things are as clean and comfortable as the host can make it.







Any drive to or from anywhere on the Fundi Shore is a pleasure. This is why W.P. has been a dozen times or more over his  lifetime. We may not make it back there next summer due to other plans but we'll make it back; hopefully many more times. There is still a lot to discover in this unspoiled place.

  4. We've driven the south shore but haven't seen Fundy yet. When the weather warms again we'll make plans for the Cabot Trail and Cape Breton. Who knows but we may get all wild and crazy and take a trip to Newfoundland. It's a strange and lovely place.

  7. A trip to the Maritimes is on our list for 2011. Hopefully, late Summer or early Autumn. I'll be consulting you throughout the year for "must sees", "must stays" and "must eat theres".
    Great photos, wonderful blue skies. The quaintness of it all. Beautiful.

    Peace.
