The Mighty Bay of Fundy

The Mighty Bay of Fundy

Nova Scotia’s Mighty Bay of Fundy:  Nova Scotia, My Heart and My Home   Years ago, as a newly wed, my husband was offered an interview with a company in British Columbia. That interview hinted at wonderful opportunities and a good life. How did I take this exciting news? I cried. I cried for days at the very thought of moving from Nova Scotia. Finally, my husband cancelled the interview.   And, after all this time, I still wouldn’t want…

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

My plan was to go to the  beach.Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach specifically. That was my plan. And I got there, although not to laze around on the sand in the sun. It wasn’t that kind of day. It was  a day for exploring. Everyday is a day for exploring, isn’t it? Rain,wind snow, everyday lends itself to some kind of unknown adventure, be it low key or thrilling. Today was low key. What was once privately owned farmland,Malagash’s Blue Sea…

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.

Havin’ Noodles at The Noodle Guy

Havin’ Noodles at The Noodle Guy

Recently, I had opportunity to try out a restaurant new to me-the Noodle Guy in  Port Williams . The Noodle Guy is one of those little nook type eateries with the menu chalked up on a blackboard and cozy little alcoves for good conversation. I was not surprised at that-it’s kind of a trend right. now. What’s not  a trend is the Noodle Guy himself. Ross Patterson’s (AKA Noodle Guy ) little labour of love received the Best Restaurant in Nova…

Camping In A Tent? Here’s What You Need to Take

Camping In A Tent? Here’s What You Need to Take

Camping old school-gotta love it. Some of us still use tents for camping. Maybe not as luxurious. Maybe a bit more  weather dependant.  Maybe more caution must be taken so your snacks don’t get pilfered by racoons. But still, if you are into that kind of thing-and I am, it can be a whole lot of fun. We assume you have done your research and chosen a date and maybe even booked your site-spots such as Kejimkujik National Park as…

Those Hidden Gems-Black Rock Trails and Lighthouse

Those Hidden Gems-Black Rock Trails and Lighthouse

  Recently we all hopped in the car- husband, dog and me- and set off for a Sunday drive. Now you may know me well enough by now to know I am not a sit in the car and drive around type of gal, but more of a let’s see what we can get into, err, I mean do, woman.  This may or may not cause ‘heated’ in-car discussion. Not with the dog-she always wants to do things. Nuff said….

Revisiting Evangeline Cafe

Revisiting Evangeline Cafe

  When I was a wee slip of a girl of 16, my best friend and I used to  pretend to be adults by walking up across the dyke from North Grand Pre and having toast at this little restaurant on the corner of highway one and Grand Pre Road. During the decades, yes decades, that have passed since I last had toast at the Evangeline Inn Cafe, it’s popularity has boomed. It’s hard to even find  a place to…
