From Queensland Beach I meandered down a windy secondary road that passes through a number of picturesque coves, eventually ending up at Bayswater Beach. Bayswater also boasts lovely white sand, and offers a longer walk and meander along the North Atlantic shore. Welcome to week 292 (9/1/2016) of Travel Photo Thursday. Sorry that we missed last week, but an unexpected overnight in Shanghai, and not being able to scale the Great Firewall of China put a damper on any plans to post. I hope you enjoy Bayswater Beach and the french fries as much as I did.
We’re pretty easy going here at BTS, but please remember to follow a few guidelines…

Although the beach is right on the road there is a line of trees and a swath of grass that provides some privacy for those swimming and sunbathing.
As you can see the fog had lifted by the time I arrived, and things were starting to heat up.
I think this photo proves that it is summertime…
Sheila’s I Canteen
I was eager to eat at Sheilas I Canteen, which was celebrating 25 years in business. I had actually passed Sheilas II in Queensland. Opps, there was one slight problem. I had no cash on me. Never go on road trip in rural Nova Scotia without some cash. The closest ATM was at least an hour away. I managed to scrape around and found 3 bucks, which was enough for a small bag of french fries. The delicious sounding seafood would have to wait for another day.
They really were as good as they look!
I ate at the picnic park across the street from the beach. Fires were banned because of severe dry conditions (not that I wanted a fire!), and serious fires were burning elsewhere in the province.
I savored my french fries,while the sea gulls and the ducks entertained me with their antics. Summer bliss!
By the time I left it was blazing hot, and the parking lot was full. Serious swimmers and sun bathers were making the best of the day.
Map from Halifax to Bayswater (just under an hour). Like Queensland, Bayswater is a provincial (government controlled) beach. This means that it is manned with life guards in July and August. Camping is not allowed, and the RCMP do come along and shoo illegal campers away.
Have you ever been to the beach in Nova Scotia? Let us know in the comments.
