#EastCoast - Nova Scotia & PEI Travel Diary

I explored Canada's East coast for the first time with a group of colleagues two weeks ago, and thought I'd share some of our adventures! I luckily had a designated photographer who was down to shoot me anywhere, anytime - thanks Lucy! Feel free to follow her at @lulfeng on Instagram and check out some of her amazing work!

The well-known and not so outstanding Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia

Pretty views from lunch, and a pitstop on the drive to Cape Breton 

Spotted a whale (the tiny black dot in the left picture), seals and jellyfish while whale watching, and did donuts on a navy boat during sunset - honestly the highlight of the trip

Took an hour long ferry to Prince Edward Island, and chased sunsets (and survived a mini sandstorm) at Cavendish Beach

Had Cow's Ice Cream twice (arguably PEI's best ice cream)

Breathtaking views from Charlottetown's waterfront and the downtown core 

Regrettably checked out the home of Anne of Green Gables, and finally found oysters on the last day in PEI (worth the wait)

Food Highlights:

Ryer's Lobster

The freshest seafood Nova Scotia undoubtedly has to offer.  We found this place on a whim, and they sell raw lobster, mussels, scallops and oysters, but I opted for the first two only. All you're given is a plastic bib, plastic meat remover and a paper plate, and then you simply wait for your fresh --lobster in this case-- that's been cooked, cracked and served with melted butter. If you're seafood obsessed and don't mind getting your hands dirty, this place is a must go. Let the reviews speak for itself. 

Merchantman Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar

Located minutes away from Charlottetown's waterfront, this place has the freshest oysters I've had - and I eat a lot of oysters. The patio, staff and service were also commendable. 

That's it.

Ending off with a GIF of my struggle in getting up a random rock we encountered on the way to Peggy's Cove:
