We took a lovely road trip down the South Shore of Nova Scotia recently to spend Maple Sugar Days at Ross Farm Museum and visit White Point Beach Resort. It was a lovely day for a drive as we stopped first for coffee at the Bike & Bean Café (absolutely DELICIOUS coffee!!) and then drove along the Lighthouse route beside the ocean.
Ross Farm Museum is a living heritage farm where you can experience what life was like in Nova Scotia in the 19th century. There is a blacksmith, animals, carriage rides, a gift shop with local art and crafts, activities for children to learn about the farm’s history and much more!
The sun was out and so were the horses at Ross Farm. The pigs and sheep were inside but there were spring babies already!
They hadn’t sheared the sheep yet so we’ll have to visit again to see them carding the wool.
We had a delicious pancake with fresh maple syrup cooked over a wood stove in a cast iron pan. It was delicious!
Since it was maple sugar weekend we got to see them cooking sap over a wood fire outdoors. Here you can see a tree tapped with a bucket for collecting sap.
Ross Farm has a lot of antique carriages, furniture and needlepoint arts to see while you’re there.
Plus we got to ride around in this smooth and spacious ride on our road trip! The Ford Flex was such a comfortable vehicle to ride in with the huge sunroof and third row seat. The coolest part was that all of the folding seats were electronic!! All you had to do was press a button and the seat would move on it’s own. I could get used to that!
Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Steele Ford who loaned us the Ford Flex for the weekend to play around in, however all opinions are my own!
