A New Country

We have been without internet for a couple of days so I will try and and rewind to fill you in on what we have been doing.

After our visit to the JFK museum we flew from Boston to Halifax, Nova Scotia and so began the Canadian leg of our trip.  The first night was spent in Halifax where we collected our hire car the next morning. We had booked a medium sedan but were fortunate to have the vehicle upgraded to a SUV.  This is the Fiat we are driving.

It is comfortable and the additional clearance will come in handy on some of the rural roads.

On our first day we headed to New Ross and visited the New Ross Farm Museum.

There was an excellent display of the history of farm machinery from the very earliest hand-made implements.

We saw heritage breeds of sheep as well as horses and cows and these very happy geese.

A special quilt exhibition caught my eye.  I love these words from the lady who curated the display.  To me, this is the essence of patchwork and quilting.

Here are a couple of examples for my friends who are interested in these crafts.

During my research I had discovered that there is a Nova Scotia Museum Pass which covers about 27 museums all over the province.  We bought a family pass and are confident that this will prove to be good value for money.  More about other museum visits in future posts.
