Was down in NS a few weeks ago. Halifax to Shelburne and points between. Have a couple of friends in Shelburne as well as relatives in Halifax. I liked Shelburne. Very quiet and a lot of history. It would seem the further south from Halifax the less expensive property is.
Didn't see a chip truck but saw one selling Haddock, Cod Cheeks, Fish Cakes, Scallops, Jumbo Shrimp, Salt Cod and Cod Tongues.

South shore is pretty $$$, eastern shore is better deal and just as scenic if not more so.

That stands to reason when you consider we Jocks have the finest golf links in the UK on our side of the great divide such as Prestwick,Troon and 'Trumpberry' etc,we were virtually next door neighbours many millions of years ago. grin

The topography of the areas are very similar.

Jock..we are New Scotland after all....lots of Scottish traditions remain here..Gaelic is actually on the rebound...and the highlands of Cape Breton are a lot like the old country for sure. Sheep abound.

and I, like the old man, am as cheap as heck....LOL

Had the worst food poisoning I can ever remember from "Traditional English Fish 'n' chips" I had on a vacation to Canada.
As I bit into the fish it all but slid out from the batter.

It certainly put quite a damper on my trip to Niagara Falls if you catch my drift. eeeek

The Pepto Bismol was pretty gross too. grin

Jock I can count on my fingers the number of times I had great fish and chips..and that is from someone living by the sea. It gets worse in other areas.

Generally, I do not eat fish outside of NS - I still can't get my head around a server in Ontario telling me the fish is "fresh frozen" - that is a complete oxymoron. My local fish seller here only sells it to me when it is very fresh (usually caught that morning) and won't even bother me if it is even a tad old.

You can get good fish and chips here in NS but you have to know where to look. The best I ever had was a small tavern in the Eastern Shore that is now closed. The haddock had not been out of the water for more than a few hours and the fries were hand cut PEI spuds - the best in the world IMO and Stompin' Toms'. The oil had just been changed and the cook knew what she was doing. Eating the fish was like eating candy..that and an icy Keith's brew and I was in heaven..

Cool idea Joker. I have been thinking about building a little teardrop for behind the 46. I want to sleep in it though wink

I know what you mean,we in Scotland have some of the finest seafood in the world,yet we export the vast percentage to Europe!
By far the finest fresh fish i've ever tasted was line caught (by me) on vacation on the Isle of Skye,straight from the sea to the pan in less than an hour,a whopping big Pollack fillet,it was delicious!
The scallops and langoustines are beyond compare too imo.
(I DO admit a slight bias of course) grin

My first ever job was working on the fish,the really early starts were a killer for a teenager but the money was good!

The one thing to remember when buying fish (as i'm sure you know) is....fresh fish shouldn't smell of fish!
