Seems you are well organized and know what you want to see...there is a little bit more to'ing and fro'ing than I would like (Day 3 is especially busy and The Wheelhouse Motel is not within walking distance of scenic downtown Lunenburg if that is important to you) but you know your own pace...is there anything specific we can help with?

On the forum we last read a travel report stating that the Ovens park was not worth it. Should we cancel that and spend more time say in Kejimkujik park on our way to Annapolis royal ?Paul

I think that The Ovens is well worth it as a hiker and the road in is true un-kitschy backroads Nova Scotia: the issue is something to do with the caves and the Zodiac boat tour? I would check their website and see if the issue is resolved. And, BTW, it is the Kejimkujik SEASIDE ADJUNCT park that is the most interesting: the interior part is less so, in my humble opinion. Also, check out Hirtle Beach for a typical maritime beach vista.
