Chester is a vibrant 250-year-old seaside village just a short drive off Route 103 and only 45 minutes from Halifax. The atmosphere here is uncrowded, unlimited, lazy, and slow — the way life used to be in summer resorts throughout the world.
A little Iyengar yoga session at the harbour with Leigh got us feeling pretty zen about Chester. We wish we could start every day with a yoga session, it would make the long van rides a little more tolerable. Maybe we could just have Leigh in the van with us!
There are so many great places to eat around here, if you’re here at the right time of the year the seafood is guaranteed to be fresh and cooked, poached, boiled, grilled or pan-fried to perfection. We had the good fortune to sample the succulent scallops at Nicki’s Inn in charming Chester.
Stretch out on a local beach and listen to the sound of the waves. Come for a bike ride, or a hike on one of the area’s walking trails, or a weekend getaway!
The choice is yours.
