Port Medway

The village of Port Medway ( on the western side of the harbor) has been undergoing somewhat of a renaissance. About six hundred yards from the wharf, there is a new establishment, The Port Grocer. There is a small restaurant and they have live music on Friday nights. It is very pleasant. Port Medway itself is a very pretty harbor, and its a handy stop, especially beating to windward form Lahave or Lunenburg. I plan to stop there more often. bear in mind that outside the main channels, there are hundreds of unmarked rocks, and the survey dates from 1860

Northeast Point, Cape Sable Island

The little anchorage next to the causeway has been filling in a bit with sand. It is still usable, but to enter keep close to the causeway. If you do anchor here and want a decent meal, I recommend Captain Kats. Walk north on the causeway to the traffic lights ( it might be easier to take your dinghy to the mainland side) turn left and it is right there. This is the best seafood restaurant in western Nova Scotia
