Walking to Annapolis Royal – Part VIII

Marsh Road West to Moschelle

On Sunday we walked the penultimate leg of this walk to Annapolis Royal.  We started out twice… cold rain sent us home to bring in the laundry the first time!  This is a great section of the trail for excellent views of the river. It swings by Sawmill Creek, woods and fields, and other un-named creeks that flow under the built-up rail-way bed.  In some places large amounts of earth have been gathered to form the rail bed raising the tracks over wet areas and creeks.  What great views passengers on train rides must have had!

Today you may see Highland Cattle along the trail and on Sunday they were especially close.

Wild peas are blooming now.  These flowers (maybe everlasting peas) can be seen in profusion along some parts of the trail.
