  • One of the best protected areas in Canada. How is nice and fresh, especially at the coast. Us again povezlots weather, sunny days stood and we decided first to explore the area. There were no specific plans. Just walked. Purely accidentally typed on the current farm. It was very interesting to wander around here. A lot of white goats, there are horses. Next away some visitors arranged picnics. We also sat down to eat. Here is very picturesque, fresh air. Love to visit such places.
