Friday August 26th was taken up by a walk to the mall to pick up a few supplies and completion of a few boat chores in between periods of rain. A brief crew meeting with Wings and Sir Tugley Blue to discuss the coming weather confirmed our plans for heading further south west down the coast of Nova Scotia tomorrow.
Nova Scotia Nature Trust is an organization dedicated to protect pristine land. The organization is funded by donations from private citizens, generally Nova Scotians. In 2013, they protected 13 hectares around Rogues Roost that they describe as “a coastal barren ecosystem with wet, exposed bedrock, lichen, scrub and salt marsh". They've also protected a big chunk of land along Nova Scotia's eastern shore. The Rogues Roost area is similar to Peggy’s Cove, without the tourists. Nova Scotia Nature Trust and its donors - what an enlightened group...
