Wanderlust Journal 15 – Martinique Beach 

I saw the pictures of this beach online, so I was very excited to walk up to this point to see for myself what was beyond. I was also impressed by the prime parking! 

Amazing! 5 klm of white sandy beach, and so much to explore! Beach life galore! With the beautiful sound of crashing waves. 


As we were leaving, my eyes filled up with tears, not because I was sad to leave but because there’s so much salt in the air! 

Its love at first sight! I’m in love with this beach! 

Daily Journal 5 – Some Place Old Something New 

The plan was a picnic in the gazebo at the Dartmouth Commons. It started out well, but the wind picked up and we ended up eating our hair!

We packed up and headed back to the car. On our way back we took one of the many paths and we came across this cute wooden house built on the tree. 

There’s something new to discover even at a place you’ve been countless times! 

Daily Journal 4 – Conrads Beach 

Two friends in bad moods with plans made. We almost cancelled, but we didn’t. So, the destination…to the beach! 

Our bad moods turned into friends laughing, talking, and day dreaming about things we want to do. 

And memories of a previous time. 

A good friend forces you to go to the beach when you’re not in a good mood, because that friend knows the beach is your favorite place and it will instantly change your mood around. And it did! 

Wanderlust Journal 14 – Eastern Passage  

In Eastern Passage, between the boardwalk and the golf course you’ll find the look off. There’s almost always cars here taking in the views of this amazing place. 

As many times as I have been here, I have always stayed at the top of the look off, but recently I found a path to the bottom, so I decided to go check it out. 

There are quite a few big rocks that you can sit on to watch the waves crash. 

When you climb back up, which is not a difficult climb, you will get beautiful views no matter which way you look! 

Not too far from here, there is a place called Flag Pond Coastal Access Park. It’s not a very big park, but it’s amazing and filled with so much nature life! 

There are two trails, one leads to the ocean with a rocky beach front, and the other leads to a marsh. At the marsh you will find lots of birds, fish, frogs, otters and ducks. 

And if you’re lucky, ducklings! 

Just down the road from park, you will find Rainbow Haven Provincial Park Beach. 

This is a great place for sunning, swimming and walking the sandy shore. There’s also some back trails which are quite fun to explore. 

Keep in mind this beach can get very busy on hot summer days and parking can be somewhat troubling. Pack a lunch and go early if you know it will be nice! 

Eastern Passage has a lot to explore, with some of the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Wanderlust Journal 13 – Lake Micmac 

My longtime friend from school invited me to go boating. It was so much fun! 


There is a bridge that separates Lake Banook from Lake Micmac. Under the bridge is a gang of pigeons. So, should you ever go there, cover your head! 

We decided we were going to explore one of the islands on the Lake. 

The Island was mostly a small forest in the middle of the lake. It was pretty easy to walk around, with nice views. 



One last shot before leaving the island on the lake in the middle of the city.
