Overlooking the winding Shubenacadie River...
Shubenacdie River leads from the world famous Bay of
Fundy to the the deep water port of Halifax Harbour. On it's
winding way through the middle of the province of Nova
Scotia, it changes from a turbulent, tidal river to a more
placid, chocolate brown water-way.
Once used with it's
own canal system for shipping, it today's remains a vital
part of the area's economy and ecology, delivering fresh
water, silt & nutrients and providing many recreational
activities. River rafting, swimming, canoeing,
kayaking & fishing
are just some other important tourism activities centering
on the river. Whispering Winds has waterfront access
and offers spectacular views of the river as it makes it's
way though fields, under highways & railways, past villages
& towns on it's winding way to the big city by the sea. You'll
feel removed from the busy pace of outside life as you
stroll along a river that rolls on regardless.
