I can’t explain what an exhilarating feeling it was gliding along the trails.  The ride was so smooth and quiet.  I literally felt like George Jetson flying through the woods!

Back in May on Mother's Day weekend, I wanted to do something special for my wife Sara (mother of our two beautiful children) and of course for my own mother and mother in-law.  With my mom and mother in-law both living almost 2 hours away in the Annapolis Valley, I knew the logistics could pose a challenge.  So I began to carefully plan the ultimate weekend. Our destination was Shangri-la!  Well...Shangri-la Cottages in Burntcoat Head to be exact.

They were content watching some morning television so I decided to enjoy my coffee by the computer to explore the feasibility of a little adventure that I had in mind.

Blooms of shimmering jellyfish as big as your thumbnail rise and fall in dreamy movement a few feet from your paddle. Bubbles from burrowing clams rise in a stream from the ocean floor while hundreds of seabirds explore the exposed flats, feasting on crabs, snails and other creatures.
