Cultivated blueberries are headed to stores and that means wild blueberries aren't too far behind. Blueberries are an important part of summer in Nova Scotia - the taste of a blueberry right off the bush or in your favourite dessert easily conjures up memories of summer vacations. Whether it's a grandmother's recipe or that blueberry pie purchased at a Farmer's Market you dream of, just about everyone has a favourite way to eat blueberries.

During last year's blueberry season, we asked our Facebook community for their favourite ways to eat blueberries and we definitely got a few ideas for this upcoming blueberry season. We even got a few recipes to try.

Fossil Fans!

By BayOfFundy, on Tue, 23 Jul 2013 | 0 Comments

JogginsFossilCentreInterior.jpg I was recently invited to Amherst to speak at an event hosted by the local area Chamber of Commerce. Amherst is a vibrant community with a beautiful historic downtown and is of course the first Town to greet visitors arriving to Nova Scotia through New Brunswick. Amherst is also just twenty minutes from UNESCO World Heritage site "Joggins Fossil Cliffs":http://bit.ly/18bRcNx, so I was excited to invite my wife Sara and the kids to join me for a little overnight adventure.

Farmers' Markets and Giant Pants

TruroFarmersMarketInt.jpg It started out a busy Saturday morning dropping my wife Sara and daughter Lienna off to her dance recital rehearsal. Next, it was off to the "Truro Farmers' Market ":http://www.trurofarmersmarket.org/ where Jaden's school choir had been asked to sing. Our Saturday morning routine typically involved cartoons and a trip to town to get groceries before noon, so we were destined to try something different!

Living the Dream in Cape Breton

By jmacarthur, on Wed, 19 Jun 2013 | 0 Comments

cbdream.jpg A sunny day. Celtic Music. Beautiful scenery. Good food. What could be better?

Last month, I visited the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique and saw this license plate in the gift shop and knew it would be my theme for this summer.

Once I made my way out of the gift shop (quite a while later), I stepped into the Tom Rankin Exhibit Room. In this room you can take an interactive journey through samples of song, stories, dance, bagpipes, and fiddle music and the story and the culture behind them. You can even try your hand at a tune, or better still, have a step on the old porch. I did both and it was great fun.

Nova Scotia really is my ocean playground. You're never more then an hour from the ocean, and there's something fun to do out on the water year round. With unique features like the Tidal Bore in Maitland to the amazing mountains in Cape Breton, five years in Nova Scotia and I am still finding new fun spots.

Wet and Wild

GreenwingLegacyInterpretiveCentre.jpg My son Jaden arrived home from school excited to announce that his grade four class was going on a trip to the Greenwing Legacy Centre and wetlands at the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park. I was equally excited to learn that they needed a few parent volunteers to go along. So I quickly said "sign me up!"

Water bonding is a part of life for those in Southwest Nova Scotia. Residents either pursue the honourable profession of fishing, have a relative who does, or they've got a small boat of their own that that they like to paddle or motor about in.
