I just got back to Boston a short time ago after spending the past several days in Halifax, Nova Scotia visiting my younger brother.
It was not my first time in Halifax. I’ve been there twice previously but the last time was in June 1998. So it had been quite awhile. As it happened, I was there for Natal Day Weekend which comemorates the birth of Nova Scotia.
For those of you who are not into 90 to 100 degree weather then a trip to Nova Scotia is in order. I can’t think of very many places where you can comfortably wear a sweater outdoors at night or on rainy days in July or August. It’s a Nova Scotia summer.
So when the rainy days come you can always pay a visit to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
This isn’t to say there aren’t warm, sunny days in Nova Scotia. When they happen it is accompanied by a cool breeze. About an hour’s drive from Halifax is Peggy’s Cove where you get a breathtaking view of the Atlantic especially when the tide crashes on the rocks.
In any case, if you have any vacation time available to you during the rest of the summer but haven’t decided where to spend it then I would recommend a trip to Nova Scotia.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
