Annapolis Royal’s Candlelight Graveyard Tour

Annapolis Royal’s Candlelight Graveyard Tour

I have been wanting to take this candlelight graveyard tour since I was invited last year. Sometimes it takes a while for plans to fall into place- I am glad they finally did for this. Alan Melanson is a  storyteller extraordinaire, and he spins his tale for nearly an hour and a half with wit, insight and myriad tidbits of historical information. I only wish I could remember a third of it. It’s small wonder that this is an award…

Inside Maud Lewis’ House

Inside Maud Lewis’ House

I’ve always been a little bit curious about Maud Lewis. Being native Nova Scotian, it’s hard not to be-she is one of the more recognizable names in recent cultural history, especially with the overwhelming popularity of last year’s movie “Maudie” I was treated to a special showing of Maudie last fall at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, along with  a chance to see her wee house itself.

Maybe that’s the only thing you think there is to do on a weekend in the Annapolis Valley when it’s raining. I know, I know.

George’s Island-More than Just Snakes

George’s Island-More than Just Snakes

  Celebrating Canada’s 150 birthday means parties and special events this entire year. I mentioned in an earlier post on Nova Scotia’s National Parks & Historic sites that I’m doing my best to get to some of these. During Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Festival such an opportunity presented itself.  George’s Island was opened for tours, a concert and a Taste of Nova Scotia event were held there. What could I do-I bought tickets to the tunnel tours and hopped on the ferry.
