Been in Nova Scotia some years back. My two grandsons live in and around Lunenburg/Bridgewater. Beautiful shore lines there. As you can see we are very much inland from any body of water. We originally started out along the Gulf of Mexico coast line, Louisiana/Texas. It was always so humid there that we agreed to find some where else that wasn't quite as bad. Nova Scotia and Lousiana have a close kinship with one another. Acadianas moved from Nova Scotia to Lousiana. Read up about it, it is quite interesting.
Karen Kaltenbaugh from Pennsylvania, USA signed in on July 30, 2000 :
It is a very nice web site but I wish it included things such as: how Peggy's Cove got its name, and so forth.

Lissa from Washington DC signed in on January 10, 2000 :
A wonderful "Willow Grove Christmas" is now a unique memory from Christmas spent in Barrington, NS. The family reunion, the old homestead restoration, the snowfall, the singing and pickin', the poems, the Christmas dinner, the tree and candles again, and most of all the family and friends who were there, all make for the most fantastic Christmas I have ever had. Now it is back to reality, but the Christmas dream of "Christmas at Willow Grove", my old home where I grew up on my beloved South Shore, and to have my three girls join me there, is a memory that will always be unforgettable. Hope to get back soon, to that "place in the heart" - Nova Scotia!!!
