Slurp'n'Surf Sessions

Par johnsp, sur ven, 7 déc 2012 | 1 Comment

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.

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!

A New Light on November

Par BayOfFundy, sur jeu, 22 nov 2012 | 1 Comment

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!

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.

Oysters & Quahogs - A Tasteful Adventure

OysterQuahogSign.jpg 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.

What A Rush: Tidal Bore Rafting In Nova Scotia

Par agray, sur dim, 28 oct 2012 | 1 Comment

Tidal Bore Rafting 3.jpgWhen I saw the tidal bore come rushing towards us I knew we were in for a fantastic ride. I knew in that instant I was finally experiencing the true power of the Bay of Fundy. I grew up in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia and spent many afternoons watching the Bay and playing on the ocean rocks. The Bay of Fundy is well known for having the highest tides in the world, and this was reinforced throughout my childhood as I watched the Bay rise and fall many feet in only a few short hours from the steps of my grandmother's cottage.

I had passed the sign for Captain Cobb's Crazy Cornundrum in Masstown many a time on my way to work, but had yet to experience this kooky-named attraction. I figured the kids would love it, and later learned that my wife and I would too.
