About NS Rural Routes

Who hasn’t romanticized about "New Scotland" when considering a Canadian adventure? Extensive seafood cuisine, exhilarating hikes, stunning cetacean spotting, storied heritage (both famous and infamous) and of course looking forward to finding Bluenose, instead of Waldo! Even though the provincial tree is the Red spruce, Balsam and other firs are farmed and harvested by the hundreds of thousands each Yuletide, joining the lobster, gypsum and wild berry industries as world leaders for export dollars.

The province boasts a symphony of creative endeavours past and present. Who would have known the blockbuster Titanic" had early scenes shot in Dartmouth in 1996? You also can’t visit the Annapolis Valley without first reading "The Mountain and the Valley" by Ernest Buckler. NS is a musical cornucopia without a doubt, with Symphony Nova Scotia, the MacMasters, the Rankins, Hank Snow and of course Leon Dubinsky’s tear jerking "We Rise Again" resonating in the background.

Many thanks to David E. Scott for his willingness to share his series of Place Name books and details associated with many rural communities in the "The Seabound Coast".
