The main industries in N.S. include agriculture, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and tourism.
When in the province, might I suggest a trip to Benson's Genuine Broaster Chicken, 134 Union Street
or the Driftwood, 209 Commercial Street in Berwick (Kings County).
Two very fine family dining restaurants, not to mention owned and run by my Uncle Donny.:)
Papa Jim and Sarah say "Yummy!" to Uncle Donny's ice-cream!
Some Nova Scotian symbols are: the Mayflower, Nova Scotian tartan and the Bluenose II.
The Bluenose II is known as Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador. She is a replica of the famous schooner Bluenose (c. 1921-46).
The Bluenose II is 43.5 metres long and was launched from the Lunenburg shipyard of Smith and Rhuland in July, 1963.
What can a person do, while visiting Nova Scotia?
Why not try whale watching, hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sailing,
para-sailing, surfing, scuba diving, camping, golfing and the list goes on!
Oh yes, and oh...while in the province...don't forget to try some of our fresh lobster, best eaten on the shores of Hall's Harbour!
I hope you enjoyed this virtual tour of Nova Scotia - Canada's Ocean Playground! More still to come!
