Pumpkins and Scarecrows…

this IS Fall in Nova Scotia!

David’s parents live just on the outskirt of the famous town of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. You can actually see the 3 famous churches that are on so many picture postcards from their place. Fall in Nova Scotia always means crispy cool mornings and nights, clear blue skies and warm sunshine, colored leaves, bright colored mums, warm apple cider, cornstalks, pumpkins and scarecrows… ahhhh…. these are the sights and smells that are truly Fall in Nova Scotia Canada.

Well it just so happens that our trip is when the Annual Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair is in Mahone Bay. You can stroll through the quaint little town and see over 150 scarecrows ( even ones that were featured on CTV’s Amazing Race Canada) Did you know that THE AMAZING RACE came through Mahone Bay and Lunenburg? I didn’t! But then we’ve been living away. I plan to track down that episode and watch it!! Anyway…

You can see scarecrows, enjoy the antique fair, and one of the highlights of the weekend…a stroll through the Candelit Pumpkin Path, with a cup of Apple Cider of course. All weekend there is lots of great music and food! I LOVE things like this so of course we had to go!

Here are some pics of our day at the Scarecrow Festival!

To start the tour…David’s parents scarecrows! Of course a Bride & Groom would be the likely choice for this wedding weekend!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
