Amherst, Nova Scotia

It had been a long time since I had wanted to go visit Amherst, a small Nova Scotia town rich in history. The Cumberland County museum & Archive is worth a visit for anyone interested in the past.

Cumberland County Museum    We enjoyed the displays and our very knowledgeable guide, a student in Criminology.

There are a few short walking trails to stretch your legs and a very nice one where we rode our bikes for a 5-10 minutes of cardio.

The town also has a Via Rail train station where we stopped for our lunch, watching people wait for their late train to Halifax, while we dreamed about our next trip with VIA.
