Sheep, Chefs, and Sugar Moons
Karen and Lara had heard that the beaches on the Northumberland shore had the warmest waters north of the Carolinas but after a few picture-perfect beach days they were looking for something a little different. Sea kayaking, a cooking lesson from a kilt-wearing chef, and a thrilling afternoon zip lining did the trick. They even spent a night in a refurbished antique rail car!
The song ‘I’m Fine (I Am, I Am)’ comes from the JUNO award winning album ‘Tender Is The Night’ by Chester Nova Scotia’s very own Old Man Luedecke. This two-time JUNO award winner has just released a brand new E.P. produced by Joel Plaskett entitled ‘I Never Sang Before I Met You’.
Learning to make Nova Scotia lobster chowder by actually picking the ingredients ourselves from local producers was such an experience. We really got to shop local! Maybe wearing a kilt will improve my cooking when I get home!
