Travel2Next.com, a photojournalist travel blog, wrote an article about the Wild Barrier Islands on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Here’s a snippet from their article.
I first heard about [the 100 Wild Islands] during a trip with Coastal Adventures, while kayaking one gloriously sunny afternoon. Owner-operator Dr. Scott Cunningham led our group of 8 kayakers through this largely untouched habitat, showing us fascinating Mi’kmaq (First Nation) middens. Essentially, these are “garbage dumps” left by early peoples, which represent a fascinating treasure trove to today’s archaeologists.
