When I lived on Cape Breton Island, sunny warm days were spent lounging in my beach chair with a beverage reading or socializing with friends and jumping into cool refreshing water of the Bras d’Or Lake.
Skipping forward to my move to New Brunswick, I realize how I took that beach for granted. Even thought I am in a Maritime province famed for the Fundy coastline, finding a decent beach to spend the day at takes planning and usually hours to get to.
Kilarney Lake is my quick go-to. It has a lovely sand beach on a small freshwater lake. You can usually find me under one of the large shady trees in front of the lifeguard house. The beach is life-guard serviced in the summer. Amenities include change rooms and pit toilets and more than 20 kilometres of nature trails. There is plenty of parking.
