Yes, I'm going that far as to make a thread dedicated to NS. tongue.gif (How very typical of a Nova Scotian. We just can't stop talking about the place.)

This is a place to share news, favorite things, storries about NS, or even the crazy people you know from there. Be it New Scot in subject, toss it here.

I'll start us off. This is one of my favorite things from Nova Scotia. drool.gif

Welcome Skyclad Awen! Unfortunately I've never been to nova Scotia. I've never heard of Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale. Is it really that good?

Actually, I never drank beer when I lived back home. Just liqueres, like O'Darby's Irish Cream. Now I can't drink the stuff straight like I used to. Too much sugar.

But it was the westerners who got me drinking beer. Then I tried Keith's after years fo drinking Kokanie. Best beer evar!!!! I also had some Olands after a few years without, and decided Nova Scotian beer tastes a certain distinct way. It is an aquired taste, I'll admit. wink.gif

You heard the Keiths slogan. those that like it, like it alot! They don't mean everyone likes it a lot. But those who do...... beer_mug.gif king.gif thumbs_up.gif

Yes, stand in awe of mister spillypants. wink.gif

Keith's is by far the best damn beer about in my humble opinion. Sleeman's makes some pretty good beer and if you have been to the Kingston Brew Pub in Kingston On they have a fine microbrewery going on there. Their Regal Ale is frickin awesome! beer.gif

Is there anything else in Nova Scotia that you like other than beer, OldRaven? I'd assume there would be, but I can't think of any at the moment...

The most lovable thing about New Scotland isn't the beer, I'll admit. But it's in the beer.

Water! NS is all about the water. Clean, clear, and everywhere. If you're not on the beach, staring out into the ocean, then you're at a lake somewhere in the interior. Or on a river. Skipping down a brook. I've never heard of a place with more rivers, lakes, n' streams. Thank heavens for the Apalacians. My parents farm has access to one of the greatest (if not THE) rivers in NS, the St. Mary's, as well as access to a private lake, with a big channel behind some islands to another huge section of the lake. There are only two ways to this lake, and we've got one. The other is private as well, and rarely gets used.

Seriously though, you're never any more than two hours from the ocean. What's not to love about that?

I don't like the beach, but I like the idea of those lakes and ponds and rivers. Love lakes and ponds! Do you have any pictures of the water?

You know me too well, 3Ravens. wink.gif

I'll tell you what, when I get back from NS here in about a month, I'll show you lots. For now, these are the only pictures I could find. I've got a few at home of the shore in Cape Breton though. smile.gif


Halifax harbour, from Dartmouth, at dusk.

A view of a lake at Keji park. I didn't take this picture. It was one I found and added the eye images to a while back, on a day when I was feeling particularly homesick.

The river that runs by Ange's parents place in Dunmore. She took this from the bridge down the road.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't view the pics! But yep, I have to admit that the water is probably the best thing about N.S. It's what I miss the most about home. Here in Alberta there is scarce little water. You have to go hours to find what they call a lake only to discover that it is a slough.......yeck. I would love to see these pics......especially the habour one cause that's where I grew up.
