Day-tripping in Nova Scotia - Joggins Fossil Cliffs

Discover NB Beaches - Herring Cove Beach
Herring Cove Beach is another Fundy National Park beach that we visit yearly. Over the years it has remained a popular beach with access from two trails.

FUN FACT: There are 60 covered bridges in New Brunswick. This one was built in 1992 and is 29m long. (more…)
What does it matter?
A couple of weeks ago, I was having a difficult time, and couldn’t get my brain around doing a column, and Ruth Ann said it was ok, not to worry about it. Then last week, I was having a great time and didn’t write a column and completely forgot about it. So, what do those two weeks have in common?
