Judique and the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre

Par yogie, sur ven, 22 oct 2010 | 1 Comment

Thursday, September 30 was my second morning waking at the Tulloch Inn on the Western edge of Lake Ainslie.  I met Susan in the dining room.  Once again, we were the first guests to arrive for breakfast.  Keith took our orders, poured coffee and inquired as to our plans while his wife Elizabeth prepared a plate of pancakes with a side of sliced apples, bananas and oranges.

I was excited today.  We were driving to the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique.  I have strong family ties to Cape Breton and can remember attending ceilidhs as a child.  This archive is different from the others I've visited in that its mandate is to preserve, educate and promote Cape Breton's traditional Celtic Heritage in many ways, including through performance.  This meant that we were in for a show.  I was also interested in ordering from their kitchen.  They offer a menu of upscale pub fare with a lot of my favourites.

With all this crazy tide stuff we see some funny sights in these parts: here's a photo I took of some folks sitting out on the ocean floor sunning themselves at low tide at Blomidon Provincial Park, near Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Hikes around the Cabot Trail

Here is our last blog while we are still in Nova Scotia. Four weeks, we thought, would have given us the chance to see all the things that Nova Scotia has to offer. Right now it feels like we arrived yesterday although we are already nearly four weeks here and only the two days that we have planned for travelling back from Cape Breton to Halifax are left.

Middle of October! We are right in the thick of it:) Crisp days, cool nights, sharp mornings... Pumpkins everywhere, bountiful apples, crackling leaves, dark starry nights, pots of soup, warm pies, fresh air and perfect walks... love it!

Better late than never :)  I've been so busy these last few weeks that I have not had time to put this together!  Thanks to the genius people at the Downtown Halifax Business Commission, I was given $100 to spend as I liked in downtown Halifax.  Nice huh?  29 other lucky bloggers were also given the same opportunity and you can read about their adventures here.

Thanksgiving Weekend - a tale of two rides

Par dkmorris, sur mar, 12 oct 2010 | 1 Comment

It is always fascinating to see how flour was originally milled instead of a loaf just appearing in the supermarket. The sound of the waterfalls and waterwheel made for a great noisy arrival and backdrop for face painting, balloon animals, barbeque and wagon rides. The horses Lady and Kate pulled us on a tour around the fields and back to the mill.

The artifacts don't come to life (I think), but there will be some cool things happening at the Public Archives Building this Saturday evening. We're taking part in the third annual Nocturne: Art at Night festival.
