Tatamagouche Treasure

One of the best kept secrets of northern Nova Scotia is the Tatamagouche Railway Restaurant & Inn. In mid September we enjoyed a wonderful meal at this fine out-of-the-way restaurant located in the sleepy town of Tatamagouche. Here are a few photos from that evening. Obviously the last one is not an evening shot but one that was taken about two weeks afterwards when we could not resist a drive back up to this wonderful little town.

The last photo shows a 66 Ford Galaxy 500 convertible parked in front of the railway restaurant. I must say that the place is busy, there were always folks milling about. While we were there we talked to an English couple who remarked that their stay at the Inn was one of the high points of their vacation to Canada, high praise for an out-of -the-way gem.

We only live an hours drive away but if we were any great distance I would not hesitate staying at this fine abode.

Tatatmagouche walking trail in the fall

Berry tree of some kind
Father and son out for an afternoon walk
 We spent another day in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia and it is becoming one of our favorite spot for fall colours and just getting away from the house. While in Tatamagouche we stopped by the Rail Station cafe and had a coffee. The cafe is located just off the Trans Canada Trail.

The trail itself is flat and wide. What surprises me is that 4-wheelers are permitted to use the trail. Any that we saw were very respectful of the walkers.

A beautiful day with temperatures around 14C, definitely a day for a light coat. Please enjoy the fall photos taken with an Olympus EPL-5 with a 40-150 mm lens.
