Beauty of a beach
The bunnies, the bunnies, everyone kept telling us about the bunnies! Since being infected with Travel Canada fever after we went to Prince Edward Island last summer, my husband and I, along with our 2.5-year-old monster Ben, decided that Nova Scotia would be the next stop on our patriot trail. And every time we told someone we wanted to go to Nova Scotia, they got this crazy gleam in their eye and told us about this family resort that was overrun with bunnies that their kids just love. Which is how we ended up at White Point Beach Resort on the South Shore. A famous family resort that’s been around since 1928 (the main lodge was freshly opened in May after a fire) this sweet, simple getaway, with its adorable little cabins scattered throughout the woods, made me feel like I was at summer camp in Ontario all over again, with the minor addition of the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean just outside our front door. We were handed a bag of bunny food when we checked in, and while we watched hopefully the whole time we were there, we only saw a couple fluffy friends scampering by. “A lot of them have just had babies and they’re hiding,” one staffer told me. Baby bunnies? Come. On! So not fair. But bunnies or no bunnies, it was still the perfect place to spend the Canada Day Weekend.
