This was one of the best vacation spots of our life. A charming cottage away from the city in Woods Harbour, directly across from the ocean with water and sunset views stunning enough to make any picture look like it has been photoshopped. Cindy came by and we shared a happy hour glass of Nova Scotia wine accompanied by NS cheese and crackers purchased along the way. We asked her to join us and she collected the names and the flavors to make recommendations for future guests. She told us not to buy anything else for the house, just call her and she’d deliver. Cindy is super knowledgeable about the area and gave us recommendations and honest feedback and asked for ours in return. She told us about restaurants and attractions. Next night she came back and dropped off a “little” something for us to try. From her personal bounty she brought us homemade – everything! Homemade salsa, two types of homemade jelly, and two bottles of homemade wine; she apologized for being out of canned beets, her specialty. We found that this was just a kindness precedent for all of Nova Scotia. Our family had a fabulous time, thanks in no small part to the thoughfulness of our kind hosts, who regularly went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. My hope for New England is that we all catch the Nova Scotia Bug!
