This is my favorite one, the farmer with his cows – setup outside the Post office, you can just about see the Canada post sign behind the farmer..

On the Saturday night (once it’s dark) there is a Pumpkin Walk. 150 carved/lit pumpkins line a path…. If you go to Jackie’s Blog you will be able to see some pictures!

As a celebration of Fall, every year Mahone Bay hosts it’s annual Scarecrow festival. Last Saturday was the 13th Annual festival but a first for Cameron and myself. Residents and businesses alike take part in The Great Scarecrow Challenge, and the Scarecrow’s didn’t disappoint.

Here is a pirate down near the wharf…

Weekend Adventures

In Sites and Sounds on December 14, 2008 at 7:20 pm

Our weekends are usually taken up with lots of exploring and investigating and this weekend was no exception! On Saturday we headed along to Mahone Bay (stop for Tim Horton’s coffee) then along through Chester to East River where we stopped for a much need pee in the bushes (bloody coffee) and walk along the railway line. After our walk (might I just add it was freezing) we headed back to Chester for a Subway. Following lunch we went back to East River and headed out along Aspotogan Peninsula round to Fox Point near where we stopped for more coffee at Bike and Bean before going to Tantallon (see blue markers on map). After all those back roads it was time to head home along the highway!
