I've only been to Nova Scotia in the summer. If you're going in early May, expect day-time temperatures to be in the 40s and 50s, maybe low 60s if you're lucky. Trees won't have leaves yet, but hopefully the grass will be green and there should be some early spring flowers in the towns (ex forsythia, magnolia, daffodils, tulips) and woods (trillium, bunchberry, etc). If you're going into the Cape Breton highlands, you might even see some snow. When I went to Nova Scotia in the mid 00s, there were already quite a lot of bald eagles if you keep a lookout, and I believe the population has grown even larger since. If you're lucky, you might also see moose in the Cape Breton highlands. Cheticamp is an Acadian town where you can try their traditional food like tourtiere.

I agree Lunenburg and Halifax are worth a stop if you're interesting in charming historic towns.

I think you mean rappie pie (râpure).

Tourtière is more of a Québécois thing.
