Want to see where I live?

I have readers all over the world, so today, I thought it would be fun to share a little bit about my home on the East Coast.  Our part of the world is rich in culture and traditions, and there are a lot of fun things to see and do. 

We live in Antigonish, NS, and one of the highlights of our summer is the Antigonish Highland Games.  {I highly recommend a visit if you get the chance.}
Two hours from Antigonish is the city where I grew up --
Halifax, NS.  We love to stroll around Historic Properties and visit our friend Theodore Tugboat -- the lead character in one of our favorite books.

And, of course, because we are located on the Atlantic ocean, we love to hang out at the beach.  There is nothing like building sandcastles and playing in the ocean.

From Nova Scotia, you can take a ferry boat to a beautiful Island called PEI.

PEI is the home of the beloved character "Anne of Green Gables".  If you have read the books (and even if you haven't), we highly recommend a visit to Avonlea Village.  You can dress up, stroll around the village, and enjoy some great music.

There are lots of great sites to visit on the Island, and lots of local music to enjoy.  We "followed the fiddler" in Victoria by the Sea, and the boys really liked it.

I hope you enjoyed this little "tour" of our part of the world.  Stop by and visit me any time.  :-)

  1. I live on the East Coast of the US, and I just always assumed that's what you meant too! Thanks for sharing, I've always wanted to visit NS. It looks beautiful.

    1. Funny! I get that a lot actually. :-)

      It is beautiful. You should definitely plan a visit.

  2. I grew up in Sydney, NS nice to see some pics from home. I live in Southeast US now.


  3. Yes, NS is beautiful. Seeing your pictures of the bagpipers reminded me that I was lucky enough to attend the national tattoo in Halifax - it was such an amazing and emotional show.
    Thank you for sharing your pictures, Jeannie

    1. I haven't been to the tattoo in years, but I have gone many times in the post. It really is an excellent show!


Don't miss any of the fun....
