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.  

Land of Giants

"Look up.  Look waaaay up! And I'll call Rusty." -The Friendly Giant


It wasn't until I saw the giant strawberry smiling from the roadside in Great Village that I came to the realization that we were home to a surprising number of giants here in Nova Scotia.  I started to make a list.
