Digby – Day 1

Pat, Zoe (doggy) and I drove to Digby from Halifax this morning. It was about 2.5 hours to arrive. Such a great getaway for us.

In 1783 Digby by the United Empire Loyalists led by Rear Admiral, Sir Robert Digby. The early settlers from New York and New England named the town in honour of their benefactor.

We checked into a Motel where dogs are permitted. It is an old motel but clean and comfortable and walking distance to the harbour front.

Digby Waterfront
Digby Pier Lighthouse – established in 1887
Digby Town Hall

We had an a fabulous lunch at the Fundy Restaurant with views of the harbour. Digby is famous for the scallops harvested from here. The scallop wrap was so delicious.


  1. Thanks for sharing your adventures and wonderful pictures!!… hope you and your family had a wonderful experience… glad IDA waited so you could have pleasant weather… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May the sun shine all day long
    Everything go right, nothing go wrong
    May those you love bring love back to you
    May all the wishes you wish come true
    May peace be within you
    May your heart be strong
    May you find whatever you’re seeking
    Wherever you may roam
                      (Irish Saying)


  2. How can dogs not permitted in these places? I mean dogs love beaches and those motels really need to be more welcoming to pets. ‘They want to walk the beach too just like humans.
