Glooscap Trail (Mi'kmaq legends tell of the mighty Glooscap who created Five Islands and controlled the great tides with his magic) we accidentally discovered "the Force". On our way to Partridge Island we missed the turn and ended up 7 km down a dirt road at a facility that is harnessing the tides for power. The wind is howling, can't imagine a better day to end up watching the currents in the Minas Basin. The tides can go up by 70 feet here, you can actually see the water swirling.
Another beautiful lighthouse at Parrsboro.
Next stop was at 5 islands, there is a rock out there they call "2 hour rock" as it only appears every 2 hours depending on the tide.
Colchester Lighthouse has been moved a number of times because of erosion of the point from the Tides. During low tide you can walk out to the islands, but watch out for that tide coming back in.
After 2 u-turns we found our cheese factory.
Jim was thinking of applying for a job as the head cheesemonger :)
