A Journal, with Pictures

New Glassgow, Nova Scotia

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.
