Truro, NS

I had to drive up to Truro for my second vaccine dose so I wandered around town to see some sights and get some lunch.

I’d heard about the local brown sauce pizza and wanted to give that a try, but all the pizza places I found downtown were closed, so I settled for some Murphy’s fish and chips, eaten alone in my car later. Best fish and chips I’d ever had.

And since I work for them now I also dropped by some Trailer Park Boys season 8-12 filming locations, like Forrester Hall at the NSCC Truro campus, or “Sunnyvale Hospital”:

In the nearby village of Bible Hill is Bible Hill Estates, or Sunnyvale Trailer Park (this field was where Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles lived, but the trailers and sheds have since been removed or destroyed):

And down the highway, the site of the old Palliser Restaurant, Motel, and Gift Shop, namesake of Trinity and Jacob’s son Mo. (The motel and house have been demolished, and the field is now a parking lot):

Across the road is the Fundy Discovery Site, where one can watch the tidal bore flow through. (I had already missed that morning’s tidal bore, though.) Funny thing here, the parking area was all people eating fish and chips, so I parked there and did likewise. When in Truro…

I’d definitely like to come back here some day to see the tidal bore, and there’s a nice playground by the viewing area that my kid would enjoy. More photos from the day in my Truro NS photoset.
