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

The Dancing Goat in Margaree, when I can get there.

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

I end up at the Shoe Shop a lot.

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

Value Village – super deals in the NS stores.

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

It would have to be lobster, cracked open with your own hands (except for the claws --- owww!!) Toronto lobster is stale, already cracked open and waaay too fancy.

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

It would be at Dominion Beach at sunset. Sometimes the sun sets over one side of the boardwalk and the moon rises over the other at the same time. I work as a travel writer occasionally and I have never seen anything as breathtaking as that.

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

1. Go to see a show at Grafton Street Dinner Theatre

2. Eat a meal at Flavour 19 in Sydney

3. Drive the Cabot Trail (especially on a motorcycle)

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

Its stories. A large part of who I am is intertwined with identifying as a Cape Bretoner (and a Nova Scotian). Telling its stories has become my life’s work. And you can say anything to anyone in the accent and get away with it, because they find it funny.

SABS Note of Noteworthiness

Lindsay Kyte has written a wonderful play... "Tompkinsville"

"Once upon a time, a group of miners changed their own lives, one book at a time. Tompkinsville is the true story of a Cape Breton mining town that was transformed from despondency to independence thanks to a rebel priest and his belief that self-reliance, co-operation and education are the keys to freedom. Tompkinsville is the story of Father Jimmy Tompkins, Father Moses Coady, Mary Arnold, Joe Laben and the credit union and co-operative movement."
