Let's go to Nova Scotia for autumn colors and photography (and probably eating too). Warning--we will be staying in a hostel in Cape Breton as all the accommodations are already gone for next year on Cape Breton.
October 13-fly to Halifax. Hotel is out of Halifax. Hotel--Coastal Inn at Bayers Lake. Will pick up our rental van at Halifax airport. Evening will be spent around the hotel area.
October 14--Lunenburg and Halifax. We will opt for Lunenburg first which is a world heritage town. Lunch in Lunenburg then head towards Peggy's Cove and perhaps Blue Rocks. It appears to be a scenic road between the hotel and Peggy's Cove so might be a slow drive.
In early evening we will drive over to Halifax take a quick look around and have dinner.

Cost for the land portion of this is trip is: $945 pp
Aprox airfare is running around $600 RT
Cost is for the rental cars, hotel, and ferry. I've booked double rooms and hopefully we will each have our own bed. There are a couple hotels where I could only book king beds (just a couple rooms) so couples (or good friends) will have to share. Airfare is not included. Nor is food, drink, or extra tours.
Price is based on 6 people going.
