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

Janine Strickland One Life Surf LessonNova Scotia is beautiful I have so many favourite views but I would have to say the bluff right before Lawrencetown beach, on a sunny day with waves of course 🙂 or at the top of Martock Ski Hill at night

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

1. Get a surf lesson with One Life Surf School we promise to show you the ropes and get you in the water catching waves!

2. Get a tattoo from Scott Forbes at Oceanic Art!

3. Drive the coast, check out our provincial parks, go whale watching, mud sliding, have campfires, visit farmers markets, swim when you see water and don’t forget to take photos 🙂

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

The changing seasons, the kindness of the people.  Its home, I love it here.   I live 10 minutes away from down town, 5 minutes away from a beautiful provincial park and 30-40 minutes from awesome surf and a fun ski hill.    Nova Scotia is full of art, music and fun times.  I will never stop traveling but I will always end up back here at home.
