A Haven Called Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia
by Alesha Wilson
For those who haven’t been into Annapolis Valley, I would love to share you a short memoir of what is known locally as the North and South Mountains. From the name of Annapolis River is where Annapolis Valley came from that flows west from the Caribou Bog in the central part of the valley and into the Annapolis Basin, and the Cornwallis River which flows east from Caribou Bog and into the Minas Basin. These two are the two major rivers wherein the valley itself has been circumvented.
It is located in the south-western area of Nova Scotia. As it is being cuddled between the South Mountain and the Bay of Fundy, it is the Nova Scotia‘s farming’s metropolis. Annapolis Valley is not just remarkable for its apple harvest but also for its perfect weather to enjoy golf, tennis, swimming and other sports! As you follow the Evangeline Trail, you will see that it winds through acres of apple orchards and fields of corn. And as you explore the coastal roads along the Bay of Fundy shoreline, you will see beautiful and magnificent lighthouses, or the high-reaching Acadian churches along the French shore.
