A Christmas wonderland sparkles like a jewel in the crown of a town that has centuries of seafaring history. Thousands of LED lights are wrapped around the branches of the tall ancient trees in Yarmouth's Frost Park. Giant presents are stacked at the base of the 150-year-old, three tier fountain, draped in a mantle of gauzy brightness. Even the gazebo, where Th'YARC's strolling carolers charm the crowds, beams golden in the landscape.

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.

Yarmouth is home to the man who holds the Canadian record for hiding the most geocaches. Ervin Olsen (Ervined) likes to think of them as 1,213 different adventures and he takes pride in where he places his geocaches. He also has a particular goal in mind when he decides where to place them: helping geocachers discover more about the Yarmouth area.
