Funny, when I look at them, all I can think is, 'Oh, I can't wait to retake that picture, and do it RIGHT.' laugh.gif

Thanks though, even though I can only take credit for the first one. smile.gif Stay tuned, because these images just don't do New Scotland waters justice.

I had the good fortune of visiting NS last summer. Alas, it was only 1 day because it was a stop on a cruise. Did get to walk around Halifax and slog our way up the hill to the Citadel. Quite a place. Then we went on a tour bus to Peggy's Cove. It was a beautiful clear day, which I understand is rare there. The rocks there are amazing. Maria and I want to go back there some day when we have time to spend.

I did not, regretably, have a chance to visit Alexander Keith's, but we did walk past it.

Being a pipe band drummer, I think NS would probably be a cool place to live because there is a very active pipe band community there.

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

Here in B.C. we love Nova Scotia.
My wife's name is Peggy and she has a Peggy's Cove shirt.
Then there's the music. I'll stop there because I could go on and on ...
Alexander Keith's Beer is the sponsor for our monthly Kilts Night in Vancouver. Fine beer! The success of our Kilts Night has spawned Kilts Nights all over the world. From Sweden to Australia, there are Kilts Nights sprouting up because they've heard how much fun we have at our Kilts Night.
Finally, I think the Nova Scotia tartan is one of the most beautiful tartans in the world. (Cape Breton is right up there, too!)

Kilts are garments, not costumes!

Wow. That's a pretty powerful opinion. laugh.gif BC is one of the provinces I'd most like to explore. So much untouched mountainous wilderness. It's a toss up between BC and Newfoundland. I'd like to see the Pacific though, at least once before I move home. So we'll probably head west before we see Nfld.

Ah, I was tossing around the idea of using the NS tartan on our kilts for the wedding, but since the MacLean tartan is red, I decided to go with the Royal Stewart. (MacLean is my mum's family) That Kilt Nights idea sounds pretty cool. Sounds like a good time. smile.gif

Peggy's cove is an experience. There's this really nice little restaraunt called the Gingerbread House, about ten minutes to Halifax, from the Cove. It looks like an actual gingerbread house, and all the interior as well. If you go, take the booth upstairs in the window gable. There are card games, and crib boards on every table for the wait. Solid slabs of wood make the tables and benches. So nice. Ange swears there is no better place to get corn chowder. I don't like corn chowder, so I wouldn't know. wink.gif The waitress told us about a tourist who once asked her if they put the rocks away in the winter. laugh.gif

oldraven,
If you make it out this way, try to be here for the first Saturday of any month. That's Kilts Night.
If you can do it in September, you'll get a night you'll never forget! This is going to be the biggest Kilts Night we've ever had, with lots of guys coming up from The States and all over B.C.
We always have kilts Night in The Atlantic Trap and Gill, a Maritime pub where they fly in the lobster and the band is always great!

Ah, yes. The Trap & Gill. The only maritimer pub in Edmonton. I go there as often as I can. By that I mean, on the rare occasion that we go out, I try to convince everyone that we should go there. laugh.gif I've actually converted quite a few flatlanders to the Trap already. I actually got myself a Halifax King donair there last night. drool.gif And the unheard of out here, garlic fingers.

My favorite thing, (well, one of them) about NS is Cows Dairy! I actually grew up in New Brunswick (please don't shoot!), and we would go over to NS almost every week-end for ice cream. There is (was?) this really cool souviner place that had a bunch of stores all joined by this old wooden boardwalk. If I ever figure out how to do it, I have a bunch of pictures of the place I'll put up on the site. And now I'm completely home-sick, so I'm going to stop talking crybaby.gif tongue.gif .

Actually, I think COWS is a PEI company, but yes, we've got them all over the place. You're talking about the Halifax waterfront, down on Privateer's Warf, right? It's got the plaster cow out front and more merchandise than a guy can handle. laugh.gif

And for all the rivalry between New Brunswick and New Scotland, I can't understand any of it. That goes the same for Cape Breton/Mainland. I think it lies in the age old Franco/Anglo conflict that never did go away completely. For what it's worth, NB has some of the most beautiful river valleys I've ever seen. smile.gif

We hold a Men in Kilts night the first saturday of every month at the Trap and Gill in Vancouver www.kiltsnight.com The King Donair and garlic fingers are often all over the tables, as are the Scoff (regular and seafood). A fine place the trap is.

You can see some pictures of the Vancouver Kilts Nights on Bear's site http://bearkilts.com/KiltsNight/kiltsnightpg.html

[FONT=Courier][SIZE=7]I am a Christian and a Yankee first but by heart I'll always be a true Nova Scotian! I love Alexander Keiths! I own the book about his life and times. I try to fish lobster every summer helping my cousin pull his traps and getting a great feed of lobster as pay. My wife loves it there as well. My fathers side of the family in Nova Scotia goes back >220 years. Ship building and sea captians run big in that leg of the family. thumbs_up.gif
