Hi Ester! I received an email from Zoomers saying you had left a comment on my profile. I have checked my page and cannot access your comment. Maybe I am not looking in the right places as I am new to Zoomers. If you would care to send it again that would be great. If I can't access my comments I will have to contact someone. Thanks, looking forward to hearing from a fellow Nova Scotian!!
Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. The lady in my picture is my wife, Mabel. You asked me what we do in the winter. Well we do the same as you do in Nova Scotia, we wait it out. Nfld winters are about the same as NS winters. Sometimes we get lots of snow and sometimes hardly any at all. When we do get snow most people go skiing, snowshoeing or riding on snowmobiles. We used to have snowmobiles but now we don't have any. We had them when the kids were young but now we just go to our cabin. We can drive there all year round. We have a woodstove in our TV room and when it gets stormy we burn a log or two and watch the snow falling outside. Very comfy!!
Our two children are grown up and married. Both of them live in Nova Scotia so we visit there quite often. I've been in Hubbards a few times. My son has a 38 foot sailing yacht in Mahone Bay.We get to go on a few cruises with him around the bay there. Very beautiful area with all the historic places. eg; Oak Island and Lunenburg and the town of Mahone Bay.
Hope you had a great summer,
All the best,
Hi Esther, just had to comment on your beautiful setting. My children and I toured Nova Scotia and the other Maritimes some years ago and had a marvellous time. We have a soft spot for your province. I am teaching and living in Mexico and enjoying an active life on this Island, a world coral reef !
