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 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 12 – Crystal Crescent Beach 

Crystal blue water, and three small beaches. The first two clothed, the last one nude. I didn’t make it to the third beach! But I did enjoy the first one. 

The sand is so soft. It feels amazing on the feet! The sand dunes are quite nice as well. This beach looks almost tropical in ways. 

There’s paths to each beach and you can go wander off into the woods onto other paths.  

I have yet to swim in this beach, I hear it is one of the coldest. It was a great little visit, and totally worth checking out the clear waters and soft sand. 

Wanderlust Journal 9 – Peggy’s Cove

The mission: Eat at Sou’Wester Restaurant and explore Peggy’s Cove. Mission accomplished: Amazing day! 

We were craving fish & chips, and I must say, these were one of the best I’ve had at the Sou’Wester Restaurant. Highly recommend, with the best views while you eat. 

Stop for a photo just outside the restaurant of the old British style phone booth! It looks like it must have been hit by many Peggy’s Cove storms, the door isn’t on it anymore!

The iconic lighthouse stands upon giant rocks…and more giant rocks! 

I’ve always wondered what it looked like inside the lighthouse! So I took a peek inside. You can also google “Inside Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse” and you’ll find a video by Macleans Magazine of a quick tour of the lighthouse. Here’s the link:

And here’s my peek inside!

It’s so much fun to jump from rock to rock. You can get a really great workout, or even pick a spot to relax in the sun and take in the ocean views. This place is huge, although always lots of people you can find a spot. 

I like walking around the fishing village. There’s so many shops, a cute café, as well as an ice cream shop. I especially like the docks, the water is so clear you can see everything perfectly. 

Peggy’s Cove is a highlight of Halifax, Nova Scotia. If you come to visit, you really should take a few hours to come check this place out, and the drive here is quite scenic, so well worth the trip! 

Wanderlust Journal 4 – Full Moon at Seaforth

I never get tired of the moon. The only question is…where will I be when I look at it next?! 

This time I’m at Fishermans Reserve in Seaforth, Nova Scotia. It’s just beyond Lawrencetown Beach. 

I often come out this way after some time at the beach. There’s some great little scenic spots along the way, as well as some trails that I have yet to explore, but soon will! 

This spot is just down Fishermans Reserve and just before the sign that says no trespassing on the Reserve. (I’ve been there before the trespassing sign was put in place, it’s small fishing shacks, smaller than my city apartment!) 

You can drive up to the rocks, then walk down and you will find this rocky shore. It’s quite peaceful and a beautiful place to watch the sunset, or check out the moon.
