April 24th Saturday – Hike in Parrsboro led by our friend Terri McCulloch. Hike will include a visit to the beautiful Partridge Island to view the Minas Channel from high above. After this we will hike to Cape Sharp which goes to an old functioning, high on a cliff Lighthouse, in the middle of nowhere overlooking the Minas Channel, but what a view! These are Merlin’s Hikes originally. Rated as moderate to strenuous (not for length). After the hike Terri is taking us to Davidson’s farm and maple sugar operation just outside Parrsboro for early dinner. She has reserved two tables of 10, so I will need to know numbers in advance. I will solicit them at a later date. Come along you will not regret. Please NOTE early meeting time 8:00 at the Irving Station, 64 Champlain St, Dieppe or 8:45 at the Amherst Mall or if you are really ambitious the Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro at 10:00 where we will meet Terri.
