Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

My friend Shawn’s Shed

Where’s your favourite place to shop in NS?

I don’t like shopping.

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

At the corner of Queen and South Street in Chester, overlooking the mooring field at Chester Yacht Club.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Get on a boat, preferably a sailboat or Cape Boat

2. Eat and properly cooked, fresh off the boat lobster

3. Wear rubber boots to the grocery store and notice how nobody even notices.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

No matter where I am in the Province, I’m never more than 30-40 minutes from the ocean, salt and tides.  Generica hasn’t taken over yet and even the bigger towns and cities all have their own unique character and history and tend to wear it on their sleeves.  Opportunities abound for the eager entrepreneur, you just have to look close enough and find your niche.
