Digby Pines Resort

16 07 2011

As I said last week, Jeff and I went to Digby Pines for a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary.

The Pines first opened in 1905 as a large wooden hotel. It was used in World War I as quarters for army officers. After the war, its new owners, the Canadian Pacific Railway,  replaced the original wooden hotel with the present building which opened on June 24, 1929.

In 1957, the Pines was purchased by the Government of Nova Scotia.

There is a swimming pool, tennis courts, croquet lawn and golf course.

Our package included a round of golf.

Jeff was hoping he could still play like he did when he was 18 years old.

There were some really interesting holes.

With lovely bridges across gullies.

And welcoming shelters.

Jeff’s putting was still great.

Luckily, we didn’t need to search for any balls in this wood..
