Discovering Your Nova Scotia
I live a hop, skip and a jump from the Armdale Rotary but very rarely take it all the way around from my neck of the woods to Herring Cove Road, specifically, Purcell's Cove Road. I discovered the other day that doing this will lead you to Sir Sandford Fleming Park - up until this point, I thought Dingle Tower was just a beautiful vision from across the water that was unaccessible [Sidenote: I am not from here if you haven't picked up on that yet.] I only discovered that I can actually get to it when I went and met a person for a trade on Kijiji and they live on Albion Road... which by the way, is gorgeous and I am extremely jealous of anyone that gets to live in this little area. It's like a little community of unique homes under a quaint little umbrella of trees [Seriously, check it out if you don't know what I'm talking about.]
Now that the weather is nicer make a trip to this area, but wait until at least this Saturday [April 15] because Dingle Tower officially opens for the season and you can go all the way up and enjoy what I am only assuming at this point is a fantastic view.
Here is the outside...
Also, nearby, is Deadman's Island where many American war prisoners were buried after the war of 1812.
My 10 year old loved visiting here, so take the fam and check it out! 'Tis the season!
Another sidenote: Sir Sandford Fleming is the creator of universal standard time.
