I have lived in Nova Scotia my entire life, which for anyone counting is a smidge over forty years. You would think in that length of time, I would have developed some sense of where things are in this province. Sadly, such is not the case.
Take for instance when I mentioned I was off to the South Shore this weekend to visit the lovely Blomidon Inn and that anyone who has not been to the south shore really should make a point of going. Now, don’t get me wrong, The South Shore is without a doubt a must see for anyone coming to this fine province. However, the Blomidon Inn, and Wolfville in particular where the inn is located…well, its not exactly located on the South Shore. In fact, if you were to go to the South Shore, and then walk straight across to the other side of the province…well that’s where I’ll be.
And this is why, if you are ever with me and you ask ‘which way do we go?’-- just turn around and go in the complete opposite direction of whatever I tell you. Trust me, you’ll thank me for it later.
And if you doubt the veracity of this, just ask my sister about our 10 hour walk through the boggy swamp land of Folly Mountain when she did not heed this advice.
