Winter Hiking Option at Pomquet Acadian Trails

By rfaulkner, on Tue, 12 Feb 2013 | 0 Comments

I decided to take the drive up to the Pomquet area, specifically to Monks Head to hike the local trails. We parked the car at Chez Deslauriers and checked out the trail map.

The general area was settled by George Monk in 1784, the home that sits on top of the hill was moved to its current location sometime after the 1860's.

Long Johns and the Ultimate Hill

Sara&KidsLR.jpg It's funny that when I think of thrilling adventure in Nova Scotia, images of tidal river rafting, zip-lining, kayaking, surfing and even snowboarding come to mind. A recent outing reminded me of another equally exciting activity that should be added to this list!

Winter Hiking Option in Gully Lake and Pancakes!

By rfaulkner, on Wed, 9 Jan 2013 | 0 Comments

With snow on the ground, there are many hiking adventures that can be tackled. A recommended winter hike would be our late October adventure to the Gully Lake Wilderness Area. This is almost 4,000 hectares of hardwoods and mixed forests. We decided to bring the dogs with us and do one of the shorter hiking loops; Sandy Cope Trail.

Our main goal was to hike for about two hours and drive 5km to nearby Sugar Moon Farms to enjoy some pancakes and maple syrup. A small reward for our adventure.

Year-round cycling

Outlandish as it seems, there's a place in the province where you could be shovelling your driveway one day and within the next 24-hours find yourself swinging onto the seat of your bike. Warm snaps are not uncommon during January and February in South West Nova Scotia.

Slurp'n'Surf Sessions

Sometimes the video does all the talking - this is one of those times. An amazing weekend at the point break of Lawrencetown Beach a few weeks back. A big group of surfers, kayakers, wind surfers, all hit the waves. Days like this are why I love Nova Scotia.

These are a few of my favourite things

Dave & Santa 2012.jpgT'was the month before Christmas, when all through the land No gifts were yet purchased, no parties yet planned. The shops were stocked with presents and decorated with care, in hopes that customers soon would be there. I eagerly waited for flakes of snow, as I hung my wreath and holiday bows. And mamma with her coffee and dad with his tea, had just called to say they're visiting me!

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.

A New Light on November

By BayOfFundy, on Thu, 22 Nov 2012 | 0 Comments

FamatAgeofSaillr.jpg It's funny but I've never thought very highly of the month of November. The weather gets colder (but rarely cold enough for lasting snow), days become shorter, and the landscape appears gray with no leaves left on the trees. But a recent trip has given me a new found respect for the 11th month on the calendar.

Trails and Bears, Oh My!

By rfaulkner, on Fri, 16 Nov 2012 | 0 Comments

We traveled 25 kms past Liverpool to hike a portion of the trails at Kejimkujik Seaside, just across the way from Thomas Raddall Provincial Park.

The weather forecast called for clouds and rain, but when we arrived the skies were clear with a nice breeze coming off the water.
