Fence Posts, Old Post Road

Fence Posts, Old Post Road

The hands-down, best way to see a place is on a bicycle. The backroads are all fine and good, but you’re still in a car, whizzing by things. A bike is a perfect mix of speed and agility. In this case, I was able to ride through fields that were completely inaccessible to a car. It was either foot, tractor or bike.

This is a stretch of fence along Old Post Road. It runs directly behind the Grand Pré National Historic Site, just outside of Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I had spent much of the day riding along the tops of the dykes and through the fields. It was a fine day to be out on the bike, far from the hordes with nothing but amazing scenery and fresh air. Not a parking lot in sight.
