Day 10.225: Nova Scotia trip recap - day 3

We were pleasantly surprised that we all got an excellent night's sleep on our air mattresses under canvas. We were slow to get moving, eventually setting out in the late morning to visit Truro.

The day was a little cool and damp and our drive took us up into the clouds, so we were pleasantly surprised after a stop for lunch to find that it was dry enough for a hike at Victoria Park. The park is beautiful and our trail started above the waterfall, so we explored the gorge first and then set off into the woods in a trail that had two dotted sections on the map indicating that they were steep:

and steep they were, but we were up to the challenge. On finding a large area of impressive clover, there was a brief search for four-leaved ones, but in the end it was the two-leaved clovers that caught our eye because of their resemblance to small green butterflies. The fungi also caught our eye.

After a bit of playground time for E5N1 and some relaxing listening to live music for the rest of us, we met up with our friends who live in Truro and it ended up being a large gathering for dinner:

followed by a quick bit of grocery shopping and the drive back over the pass to our camp.
