You mean, July 1st week, right? wink.gif Your trip being to Canada, and all.

If you're coming up this summer, we'll have to hit the beach and 'Boyd's Seafood Galley' (the freshest catch you can get around Antigonish, since it's at the Cribbons Point Warf. It's on the way to Cape George. http://www.pbase.com/macisaac/cape_george_way

Sorry Adam, no can do. The company that we deal with, didn't have any openings in NS for that week, so, we ended up in Colorado Springs. I've never been to Colorado either, so it will be a good alternative.

One of these years, NS will actually make it on the schedule.

Well, once again my family and me are heading out to the old home in Nova Scotia. My son is 2mo now. A lot of friends can't wait to see him. My daughter who is now 3 keeps asking "when are we leaving?". I'm sure "are we there yet" will be coming just around the corner. Yes. We are actually driving from way down here in Florida to Nova Scotia. This year we have friends going with us in their new RV so it should be pretty comfortable. My daughter says she can't wait to swim in the Bay of Fundy this year. I guess she forgot how cold that water is. I actually learned to swim in it. It thickens the blood all right! Well everyone be blessed and safe this summer. thumbs_up.gif

Been up to my neck recently, so I guess I have some catching-up to doÖ Hey Nova, you know youíll probably be driving right past my house, if you planning on taking the George Washington Bridge, to Nova Scotia. (It sounds a little like the yellow brick road.) Of course youíre welcome to stop by for a wee respite, if you like? I live just off 95 on the approach to the bridge.

As for swimming in the waters off Nova Scotia, I canít say that I have. Although, I wouldnít advise it, having gone swimming in the waters off Booth Bay Harbor, up in Main. I mean the water is so cold up there, it changed my gender, but fortunately the affect does last long.

And this is the coldest and wettest summer since 1993. tongue.gif There's a cloud system hanging over that a climatologist on the news called "an unwanted houseguest that just won't leave". The waters are 3 to 4 degrees colder than usual and about 5 colder than last year. We're expecting a hotter and dryer than normal late July/August, though. The blueberries won't be yielding much this year. sad.gif

On the bright side, I've never seen it so green here. I mean, it's great to begin with, but this is incredible. Lots of leaves, not as many flowers.

Hello to everyone from Nova Scotia! Funny Old Raven how you said it was so friggin cold. It's been nothing but HOT HOT HOT! since I arrived. We've been having a lovely time this year down in Spencers Island. Everyone loves my new little one. My Daughter as well is loving it all. She's 3 now. I've been practicing the pipes a lot and getting quite an audience. Even though I'm just playing basically nothing. Everyone seem to just love it. Talk to everyone back in Tampa real soon.

Well the weather man said, when it hits It'll hit hard and stay hot for a long while. You must have been flying to drag that hot weather up with you and break the cloud. wink.gif

Ange has been at the beach twice this week. I've been at work. sad.gif

Isn't Mary Jane Lamond from Nova Scotia? I really like her music. The cd's come with inserts of the lyrics in Beurla as well as Gaidhlig.

Actually we drove up this year in an RV with friends. The day we arrived it warmed up beautifully! It was great the whole time we were there. We had a few rainy days but thats the norm.

Hi Old Raven, I just found out about that topic, i'm still exploring you see.
And ahhh Nova Scotia what a beautiful and cheerful place.
We've been to Nova Scotia 3 times now and planning our retirement there hopefully if all goes well.

My father in law was born in Wolfville.And the house where he grew up is still on the land of the cimetary in Wolfville, where his mom and dad and grandmother
are buried. My husband's parents pass-on a few years back and this is where we brought them to be buried together . My father in law's life came full circle there.Born and buried there.

We visited pretty much the whole of Nova Scotia and I have to say there is no place that we regretted visiting we made friends everywhere we went and stayed.

And it is in a Tatamagouche bar that I discovered the Keith's beer and I have to say that's the only one I drink and tolerate.I'm not a beer drinker you see....
But this one is the best.

My favorite place is Inverness for its beach and the sunset there is extraordinary.
And of course there are a few others as well as my favorite.

The most beautiful sunset that I catched on picture was taken in Digby, what a fantastic photograph it did.Every time I show it to people they are in awe of it.
We do have beautiful ones here as well but never like the ones over the ocean.

I think I'll stop here because I could talk about it all night... smile.gif LOA
