This summer, my sister and I took a road trip together around Nova Scotia. We were limited to six days, which was about twenty days less than we wanted to have, but we found this Canadian province to be packed with beautiful landscapes and seascapes, historic forts, M'ikmaq Indian lore, Scottish music, well preserved Victorian towns, small fishing villages and more lobster and scallops on our plates that even we who love our seafood could eat.

This story is mainly for the ladies. Sorry, guys. Based on the conversations I’ve had with my customers, it seems women have more trouble than men packing light. Who knows why? My client base is primarily female as well.

Here are photos of some animals, made in stone, at Kjørstad, Eidsfjord, Vesterålen. It's a 40 min drive from my home. You can see cormorant bird, cow, eagle, fox, puffin, black grouse, seagulls, a stone church, a stone man, and a turtle.

While most people hear Las Vegas and think glitz and stage glamour, seediness and bright lights, buffets and gambling, there is much more to this town than you think.
