On Saturday we came back from a lovely vacation!
One day, our family went to a little tourist town called Mahone Bay.
It has been my favourite place to visit since the first time my Dad and I went there one October and they were having a scarecrow festival. Everyone in the little town gets together and decorates the whole place with scarecrows. These aren’t your regular scarecrows like in the Wizard of Oz. It was nearly 10 years ago that we were there and I remember they had a band of scarecrows set up in the gazebo, the Peanuts characters in one yard, and pretty much scarecrows in every yard and business! My camera broke before I got to Nova Scotia so my Dad and I bought a disposable camera to take as many pictures of us with the scarecrows as we could! I will have to try to find these pictures!!
This time while we were there, I made sure to visit Have a Yarn which was a delightful yarn store full of beautiful yarn. I don’t have pictures of what I bought yet so that will be in a future post. The lady that was working at the store was very nice and helpful when I told her what I wanted to get! She was also very nice about it when, in the middle of browsing my 3-year-old yelled “I have to poop!”, in the way that only 3 year olds can!
We browsed around a few other stores and bought bubble bath from Sugar Bubbles, tea from the Tea Brewery, margarita flavoured ice cream, and discovered the store called Teazer does not sell tea at all. We had lunch at the Mug and Anchor Pub which I consider a must if you’re visiting Nova Scotia!
