A Journal, with Pictures

New Glassgow, Nova Scotia

by on Oct.06, 2011, under Flying, Happenings

September 27th, Tuesday, we leave Sydney for New Glassgow. Sydney is a funky little municipal airport as we previously described, however the people are very helpful getting us refueled and loaded up. We debated if we needed to refuel for the one hour flight, but in the end why not. We had a perfect VFR day and landed at the Trenton Airport, CYTN. We were met by our friends who we met in the Bahamas in January. We told them, never invite someone with an airplane to visit, because we will come. They were at the airport to greet us and took us to Marc and Shauna’s home for tea and to get re-acquainted. The three couples, Marc and Shauna, Wayne and Carmel and Howie and Marnie were all there. What a treat learning about their lives in New Glassgow, which includes a lot of traveling elsewhere. Marc is a Toyota dealer and loaned us a car and pointed us to our hotel and on to Pitou, Nova Scotia for a little sight seeing. We saw the renovated ship that brought the original Scottish settlers to Nova Scotia, the Hector, and the local fisherman’s museum. After our touring we met at Carmel’s Irish Pub, called the Docks. Carmel is from Ireland and she and Wayne out did themselves with fantastic appetizers and drinks. We then walked to the Bistro that Howie and Wayne formerly owned for dinner. We had a wonderful time with these fun people, who treated us to great food and unbelievable hospitality.


Somehow we found our way back to the hotel, and it was time to check weather for tomorrows flight to Quebec City.
