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

Cempoal de la Calavera Negra on Agricola. Sometimes I’ll use their lattes as a motivational reward at the end of a run. Then, high on serotonin and caffeine, El Jocko tries to keep the swagger to a minimum as she smugly makes her way home.

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

I like a Dark and Stormy at home with friends on Daybed, a giant mattress strewn with blankets and pillows that lives on my deck when the weather is warm. I get my ginger beer for the drinks at Propeller Brewery.

The UFO Museum/Grocery Store in Shag Harbour. It serves all my paranormal and baked goods needs.

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

The hills of Collingwood, where the blueberries grow. I was just filming some yodelers there for an upcoming documentary I’m doing on east coast subcultures.

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

  1. Bike the Grand Pre Dykes – a triple whammy vista of field, farm and sea.
  2. If it’s summer, you just gotta float down the Gaspereau River in a giant inner tube with a bunch of pals. Lift your bum up when you go through the rapids.
  3. Go to Terrance Bay and see the miniature fishing village that 80-something year old folk artist Charlie Norris has built on his front lawn. When the forecast calls for rain, Charlie takes the wee laundry off the tiny clotheslines.

Jackie With CameraWhat makes Nova Scotia a special place on earth for you?

It’s surrounded by ocean and ocean’s in my blood.
