I am in the planning stage of my trip. We are planning a Nova Scotia trip in late September, around the 21st to the 30th, 10 days, 9 nights. Going to fly into Halifax and spend the night. The next morning head for the lighthouse route making Lunenburg our base for three nights. Here is my question. What is the best way to make use of the rest of our time given we would like to do the following?
Spend our time on Cape Breton Island.
Whale Watch (Where is the best place?)
Hike (not too strenuous)
Listen to the local music (preferably in a pub)
Nature Photography.(Seascapes, landscapes and villages)
We are renting a car so we have transportation. We will be driving from Lunenburg on 5th day.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
