Gone East, by m

Standard

 

 

Just got back from a week in Nova Scotia!! We got to visit some of the most beautiful small towns in NS, and visit some awesome friends from undergrad. Our Air Canada journey started with a four hour flight delay.  This meant that we missed a ride we’d organized with friends at the Halifax Airport, and missed a friend’s concert in Lunenburg. Upset, but determined to start the vacation right, we had a Lunenburg cabbie meet us at the Halifax airport when we finally arrived around 10:30, and then made the 1hr + drive to Lunenburg. He dropped us off right at the bar, and let us leave all our luggage and worldly possessions in his cab for the rest of his shift while we got a few drinks in us (oh, trustworthy small-town Nova Scotia!).  We spent the next three days on the water…

Next, it was onto Wolfville, Nova Scotia (home of our beloved Acadia University) for a walk down memory lane at Paddy’s…

And a wine tour at Grand Pre Winery…

We visited the hidden Three Pools, where youngsters often jump to their

near-death from the highest, 70 foot ledge on the left. Then we were off to New Glasgow, Nova Scotia for some beach time and a night at the Jubilee to see Joel Plaskett play before heading home (where we learned that Air Canada had lost our luggage…awesome). Totally worth the trip!!!

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
