When planning this trip, social media had a lot to do with the places that we visited, some of the things that we did, and a couple of the places that we stayed.

Osprey Shores Golf Resort was one of those places that we found thanks to Twitter. Authentic Seacoast owns Osprey Shores and several other properties in the Guysborough, Nova Scotia, area. Their social media expert contacted us and suggested staying at one of their properties. They also provided a wealth of information regarding the area.


The accommodations at the resort were great. We could park our bikes right outside our front doors.

After we unpacked, I went hunting for a geocache that is on the property. While I was looking, a couple of cachers drove up and started looking too. We combined forces and found the the cache. I dropped a trackable into the cache, and the others picked it up to take with them. As of today, the trackable had traveled over 4025 miles.


Another Authentic Seacoast property is the Rare Bird Pub & Eatery. We stopped there for dinner and, among other things, enjoyed a bowl of Chedabucto Bay Seafood Chowder and a Rare Bird Ale from the adjoining brewery.

The entire meal was fantastic.

Authentic Seacoast also operates the DesBarres Manor which we did not have the opportunity to visit.


The entire village of Guysborough was bright and colorful and very relaxing. The Jost’s Wharf Building in the picture above gives an example of the vividness of the area.

I would like to thank everyone at Authentic Seacoast for helping us plan our trip and for making our stay a rejuvenating one.
