I love N.S.


This is a very typical sight along the back roads and countryside of Nova Scotia. Charming old houses with banks of day lilies.
Speaking of Nova Scotia..... I am busy trying to shoot a video with my newly won FlipCam! Nova Scotia Tourism is running a contest in which you can win a $15,000 dream vacation. All you need is a 2 minute video describing why you love this place. The money can be used towards anything you want. I might like to rent a big lodge and have a party, flying in friends and family from around the globe:)
Because there weren't a lot of video entries, NS tourism ran another contest giving away 2 FlipVid cameras a day so you could have the equipment to get started. All one had to do was tweet about what they would do with the $. I did and I won one:)
Now I am rushing to shoot my wee video so I can get it up and get some votes:) There are two there with 18,000+ votes and the rest are about 200-4000, I am thinking thewre might be some hanky panky going on. Anyway......I will try my best and once it's up I'll let you know:)

All my life my "plan B" was to grow herbs in NS. Seeing your pictures makes me wish I'd at least visited, or moved it up to plan a! thanks and good luck with the whole video thingy.

Congratulations Shelagh! My husband wona Flip Video camera a few years ago and we did noy=t ike it --the sound quality was terrible and we had to upload it to a strange web site that ran off color videos. I hope they improved the quality and the uploading options!

I'll try to vote for you as often as I can!
