It's been too long since we have been to Nova Scotia. Although we have been visitors many times, we still love to come back. There are still so many places we didn't visit and so many things we'd still love to do!
In autumn, the rural road along Nova Scotia's Highway 2 is lined with scenes of quaint farm houses, river views, and blueberry fields as red as hot coals.
My sister and I made our way along this road one chilly October day, excited to view the newest work of local artist Joy Laking at her Fall Exhibition.
Joy Laking has been capturing the heart and soul of Nova Scotia in her paintings for over forty years. A visit to her gallery near Bass River leaves one feeling warm, welcomed, and inspired.
Halloween is just around the corner and whether you prefer tricks or treats, there's something to delight ghouls and goblins of all ages. From family friendly pumpkin parades to the scariest of haunted houses, here's a few Halloween treats to check out.
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.
The end of summer in Nova Scotia is just the start of another amazing season. Heading out on a road trip among the bright yellows, oranges, and reds is one of our favourite things to do. Our annual Leaf Watch keeps track of where the leaves look their most colourful and give us inspiration to head out in search of the best fall has to offer. From to a day trip to the Annapolis Valley to pick apples to a weekend getaway to drive the Cabot Trail, there's no shortage of things to do in fall.
But you don't have to take our word for it, find out what our Facebook and Twitter community have to say about their favourite things about fall in Nova Scotia.
For those in the communities of South West Nova Scotia, Dumping Day is one of the most nerve-wracking and exciting days of the year.
My morning drive through the Wentworth Valley enroute to Malagash was nothing short of stunning. The fall colours were still in their prime and I counted four white tail deer in fields along the way. I was heading to Bay Enterprises where I was about to learn about the wonderful world of oysters and quahogs.
