Wedgeport in the winter is a petite french tale of taste and culture.
I drove along the Tusket River, admiring long views with stretches of russet coloured dykes and saltwater haystacks.
I am still awed by the grandeur of the churches and houses in rural Nova Scotia.
I love the bright colours of the houses in Wedgeport, it adds a shrug of “je ne sais quoi” to our Acadian communities. This pink one captured my imagination.
I found the Brioche d’Or Cafe & Bakery. I tasted the croissant, pain au chocolat, and the brioche and I remembered the little french cafes from Paris. The Acadiana from the coffee menu caught my eye.
My timing didn’t permit visits to the Sport Tuna Wedgeport Museum or Tusket Island Tours.
I did stop at Carl’s for Rappie Pie (Rapure), Robichaud’s Mincemeat, and a small treat bag of dried haddock. Dessert will be lobster sugar cookies from Brioche d’Or Cafe.
Wedgeport is a 20 minute drive from Yarmouth.
