Friday was a beautiful day in Nova Scotia – sunny and pleasant. My brother Frank and his wife Sylvia flew in from Iowa, so I piled in with them to do some sight seeing before our evening show. We started off by visiting the Hank Snow Home Town Museum. The story goes that Hank, an abused child, often slept in the safety and warmth of this train station when he had nowhere else to go. The museum is very informative!
Across Nova Scotia from Liverpool lies the famous Bay of Fundy – home of the world’s largest tide. The cliffs and beaches were memorable, but I will have to take their word on the tide thing. Not the sort of thing you can see at a glance…
Yard art? Maybe they were just hanging these floats up to dry, but I thought it was worth a photo. We saw several similar displays.
Our final show on this tour was at the Evergreen Theatre in East Margaretsville, Nova Scotia, located not far from the Bay of Fundy. This 100-seat venue is housed in a former church. The acoustics were fantastic! We had a respectable crowd, and they gave us a very warm reception. I especially enjoyed this performance because we were doing mostly original music. That is where my heart is, after all!
