Quebec winter activities

“I’m sorry folks, but we are unable to land because the runway needs to be cleared off. We’ll be diverting to Montreal until they can get the snow cleared and will try again,” our pilot explained. My trip to Quebec actually started by getting delayed by the snow. I was tired and sad as my […]

cape breton hikes

My mom and I turned into the French Mountain parking lot in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. I pulled into a parking space and walked over to the Skyline Trail sign. I had heard about this trail, it was supposed to be the premier Cape Breton hikes in the park for views. I had seen […]

Everyone tells you that you should plan for 3 to 5 days on the Cabot Trail – a 185 mile drive around the tip of Cape Breton Nova Scotia passing along and through the scenic Cape Breton Highlands.

things to do on the acadian peninsula

The woman at the counter brings my pain au chocolate and says something to me in French. I always admire the French language; it flows so beautifully, like silk coming out of people’s lips. It makes me nostalgic for my high school days when I took French and wondered why I was taking it. After […]

Alberta birds of prey hawk release tom jackson

The golden, wheat filled horizon stretched out in both directions as far as my eyes could see. The horizon line blurred at the ends as I squinted my eyes trying to take in such a vast landscape. It was a never-ending horizon, perfectly flat; when I stare at it I see a world of possibilities […]

Everyone knows that the best writers are storytellers. The best speakers are storytellers. The best museums tell a story. The best coaches are storytellers, the best leaders are storytellers, the best salespeople are storytellers. My favorite  podcasts, (Moth and TED Talks) are storytelling podcasts. Everyone is a storyteller these days; it’s one of the buzz […]

A Handshake in the Canadian Badlands

Canadian Badlands Writing on Stone

I was going through all the motions…it had been a whirlwind travel day of moving, moving, moving. We did introductions quickly in the parking lot and shook hands. I never thought of myself as hurried – until I went to pull away from the handshake and he took his other hand and cupped it around […]

Fly Fishing the Mighty Miramichi River

September 28, 2017 8 Comments »

The fly fishermen sitting next to me have been coming to Country Haven Fishing Lodge along the Miramichi River in New Brunswick for decades. However, they don’t come for the fishing, they come for the good food and a good night’s sleep. Nope, it has nothing to do with the fishing…not at all. Ok…that’s what […]

I love lobster, like really L-O-V-E lobster – I would choose to eat lobster for my final meal if I had to. When I decided to go back to the Canadian Maritimes, it wasn’t the beautiful hikes, welcoming Acadian culture, seaside villages, or biking trails that had me most excited; it was the opportunity to […]
