The coastline of Nova Scotia consists of thousands of small crenulated inlets. Most are small and very scenic.
Blue Rocks is a small fishing community 8 km north and ocean ward of Lunenburg. We drove out there our first evening. It did not take very long and the scenery was very picturesque. We also drove north to Somerset. This is what we had anticipated most of Nova Scotia looking like.
Throughout the area, evidence of glaciation could be seen in the rocks gouged in continuous straight lines, a testament to the power of nature.
This hard rock was scraped by a glacier as easily as we might scrape frosting on a cake with a fork. All of the rocks around Blue Rocks had this feature.
During Hurricane Bill, locals drove out to this area to watch the waves. Considering that huge granite boulders were being tossed up on to the road with every breaker, this behavior was foolish, but it won't be the last of such stories I will tell along these lines.
