The Old Triangle in Sydney

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

I usually shop at the Mayflower Mall, and really like the store called Laura

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

At the top of Irish Cove in Cape Breton there is a look-off and as many times as I drive by, it still takes my breath away.  I often pull my car over just to sit and enjoy the view.

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

1. Eat lobster!

2. Go whale watching

3. Take in the Celtic Colours International Festival

You just can’t beat the scenic beauty and of course, the MUSIC!

  2. She is the best piano player I know with a heart of gold and compassion to all around her. She loves company on the bench at the piano when playing... Thank You Flo
