Mahone Bay Scarecrow Festival (Part 2)

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..

Dancing anyone?

I think these guys resemble more traditional scarecrows…



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!


Easter Celebrations

In Sites and Sounds on April 14, 2009 at 10:00 am

Easter is a BIG thing in Canadian, which is fine as it meant a holiday weekend for us. It also meant that almost EVERYWHERE (the mall, local shops and even the big supermarkets) was closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. On the Saturday we risked going to one of the larger superstores for some groceries and only just made it out a live!

We celebrated Good Friday with a trip to the Happy Cooker (which was still open!) for breakfast – bacon, eggs, home fries (fried potatoes), toast and coffee! Feeling rather full we headed to Mush-a-Mush lake for a walk. If you look through my previous blog posts you will see the lake in the snow. It’s looking quite different now it’s spring time…

Isn’t it beautiful. It has been fantastic watching the lakes freeze-up and the slowly turn back from solid white to vivid blue. It’s not much wonder everyone here paints.

We strolled around the lake and enjoyed the warmth and sunshine..

…Oh yes you can!

As you all know it was my birthday last week (Wednesday). And I was totally spoilt…

The day started off with breakfast in bed then we went for a walk (2 hrs!!!) along the railway line at Mahone Bay. By this time, it was time for lunch and we headed to the Innlet cafe for lobster sandwiches.
