The trip from Halifax to Yarmouth was one of least exciting segments I covered. It was overcast and somewhat foggy all the way and with all the trees there wasn't much to see.
I guess I could have tried the scenic route a little closer to the ocean, but after the trip to Peggy's Cove and the eastern portion of Cabbot Trail I didn't expect it to be that great. Don't get me wrong, Peggy's Cove was great, but the trip there and back wasn't that scenic. Besides after spending so long in eastern Canada I was itching to get down towards Boston.
The day before I drove to Yarmouth I called to inquire about the CAT ferry and they recommended getting a reservation, but they said it wasn't necessary so I decided to take my chances. If I got to Yarmouth and liked it I would stay in the area for a while, otherwise I would just hang around long enough to catch the next ferry.
Well, as it turned out, I found Yarmouth to be nothing special and with the heavy overcast and foggy conditions I decided to catch the first ferry I could, which meant I only stayed in Yarmouth for a little over an hour. Before getting in line for the ferry I did do a slight tour near the waterfront and the following pictures are from there.
The first picture here is of the local clock tower and of some interesting boat across the water - I'm not sure what it was supposed to be.
Yarmouth's newest Tim Hortons and Wendy's are located in this replica of the former 19th century Dominion Atlantic Railway station.
