My Bounty is as Boundless as the Sea (Taylor Head, NS)

People go to concerts and galleries to find this emotional connection with creation. I go to Taylor Head.

Taylor Head Provincial Park is a finger-like outcropping of land reaching out into the Atlantic on Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore. The drive from Halifax to Spry Bay is a bit over 1.5 hours, but nearly every mile of this coast is worth it. A dirt road brings you from the #7 highway into the park, and on a busy Summer day the parking lot will be quite full.

From the lot, follow the signs to the trail head. The trail is a figure eight of two loops, together totaling 8K. For a shorter adventure you can just take the Spry Bay at 4K, or add the Headlands Loop. Taylor Head point is the tip…
