I was in Cape Breton Nova Scotia for the Celtic Colours Music Festival in October. The music, food and scenery were fabulous. If you haven't been, plan a trip. It's the second week of October each year.

I defiantly do plan to attend Celtic Colours some year. I'm usually in Nova Scotia in July and August.

OH MY HEAVENS!

This is just too cool!

I was just looking around the net trying to find some in info on Kilt and I found a 50 minute concert video of them! And what's REALLY cool is it was filmed the day after I saw them in Radford VA at the Radford Highlanders Festival! Check it out, it is just too cool! I haven't got to listen to the whole thing yet so I don't know if they perform Rubber Boots. anyway, here's the address:

ENJOY!

Nova Scotia is one of the most breathtaking places in the world! I was the first apprentice Glass Blower at Nova Scotian Crystal. Its on the water front in Halifax.
The kilt concert was amazing Brings me back to the first time I saw them at the Split Crow a pub in Halifax, or Hali for the locals

A few years ago I traveled to Nova Scotia to visit a few friends that do "Mountain Man" re-enactments with me. As I crossed from Maine into New Brunswick it was about 1 AM. I had missed the regular crossing and crossed at a very small station with only one agent on duty. I stopped and took a break talking and drinking a well needed cup of coffee with him ( I had been on the road about 20 hrs traveling from Baltimore). He told me to take my time and to stop at the pull off area just before going into Nova Scotia and take a break until about 7 AM then cross. He said it would be worth the wait.

I did what he suggested, I pulled over and took a short nap, then drove on. As I crossed a low hill I saw the sign in large letters "Welcome to Nova Scotia". A short way farther up the road was the visitor's center, and a fantastic view of a fog cover low land just passed it. There standing near the road was a man in full Scottish kit, playing the pipes. Welcoming the visitors into a lovely Province of Canada. He was right, I have never felt so welcome going into a new area as I was that day. I spent the next few days at a resort in Economy on the cliffs with a great view of the bay. I spent 5 unbelievable days in what is truely God's land.

That low-land heading into Amherst is the Isthmus of Chignecto. You weren't that far from another miraculous sight. The Fundy Tides.

I was out in some less crowded areas of Guysborough Co. (as if you can call any of it crowded) this weekend, and it's amazing how far your eyes can stretch out there, and never see signs of man. If you were looking for a Mountain Man experience, (and a reason to wear more deet than is healthy) that should be one of your next retreats. wink.gif

Hello and welcome to CR b4u2,

Yes Nova Scotia is one of the most breathtaking places of the world.

The cabin I stayed in was right on the cliffs of coast of the Bay of Fundy. One of the most fantastic sights I have seen. I plan to make more trips up in the future, I truely loved it here.

Economy is a beautiful area. I'm going to be arriving at my stompping grounds on the 20th of July. I'm always excited. As many all ready know I've a summer place in Spencers Island. My roots run deep there hence the CR name I choose for myself. I've always considered Nova Scotia my 2nd home.
