My take on Nova Scotia

Going to Nova Scotia, Canada was one of the best trips that I have made in a long time. It was very relaxing and most of the people that I've met seem to have a laid back attitude. I did see the occasional a**hole on the highway who thought that the speed limit was posted for those that were trying to park.

Since there are a lot of two-laned highways, you can spot the a**holes quickly. They are the ones that attach themselves to your bumper until it is clear (or not clear) to pass you. Coming from Los Angeles, I was not intimidated by these Cling-ons. I only wish that I had my truck and not a rental car. I could've shown them what happens when you tailgate a truck with a real bumper. I have to say though, I didn't see one accident while I was there.

Dan and I ended up driving all over the Nova Scotia province. Here is a list of some of the places we ended up visiting: Halifax, Cape Breton, Sydney, North Sydney (I kept getting on the wrong road and ended up coming back to North Sydney.), New Minas, Kentville, Kingston, Sackville, Greenwood, Peggy's Cove, Yarmouth, and Middleton.

I saw trees and grass everywhere. Not just some trees, but trees so densely packed together that you can't see through them. After a while, it became strange when I would come upon a field that was open with crops growing instead. I don't know if that land had to be cleared first or not. All I know is that if they had to pull all the trees first, that would have been a LOT of work.

Since my view of Canada was limited to the Nova Scotia province, I really don't know what the rest of Canada is like. I do know that even Halifax--the biggest city in NS--felt like a college town to me. All and all I really enjoyed my visit. I couldn't live in Nova Scotia though; even with Halifax, it is too small for me.
