While a road trip through the fall colours or heading out in search of the fresh harvest is always one of our favourite things to do during this season, another is to get away to Cape Breton for a round - or six - of golf.

BoatingByOldSal.jpg A vivid image of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau sprung to mind as I confirmed our next family outing. I must have seen Cousteau's picture in an old National Geographic magazine growing up and recall how rugged and cool he looked aboard his Zodiac boat. We were about to experience our own Cousteau-worthy Zodiac adventure and could hardly wait!

AmherstShoreParkTrail.jpg Being a man, I am not sure I am allowed to say this, but I figure camping can be a lot like child birth. You sometimes have to go through a lot of pain for great reward. As time passes you forget about the pain, only to do it all over again.

Hiking Admiral Lake Loop

On a cool morning, we decided to hike the Admiral Lake Loop - a 10km trail part of the Musquodoboit Traillway Association. We opted to do the trail clockwise, keeping the steep elevation until the end. That meant an easy 4km along the converted rails to trails towards Bayer Lake to start with. This section had the lake on one side and granite cliffs on the other.

Driftwood & Dining Adventure in Advocate Harbour

DriftwoodBeach_WestAdvocate.jpg I was scrambling around the house attempting to pack up for an overnight get-away. It was my wife Sara's birthday weekend so I wanted her to sit back and relax and I would handle all of the details. It quickly became evident that I am not the organizer in our relationship.

Guest Post by Gillian Wesley and Drew Moore, The Local Traveler

I am fully aware of the fact that people everywhere, and I mean around the world everywhere, make bold claims that the pizza from their hometown is the best pizza you could possibly find. This is not something that's unique to people from Pictou County. What IS unique to people from Pictou County, is that when they say it, they're telling the truth.
