"You can take the 'girl' out of the east but you can't take the east out of the 'girl'. I guess that's why I ended up back in Nova Scotia after moving west a couple of times. I missed the sea and the smell of salt in the air. Living in a small town suits me best and Wolfville is home now. It's only a few meters to the dykes from my door for a walk on the shores of the Minas Basin. Just add the company of a four legged friend for this animal lover."
