Orange syrup by Larry Sibley

Orange syrup

Yarmouth, NS

While standing in a queue in a gas station in Yarmouth waiting to pay for gas, I noticed these plastic tanks mixing various flavours of beverages. I loved the condensation bubbles seen in this photo of the orange syrup tank.

Gold Medal Chowder

Whycocomagh, NS

I was hungry so stopped at this little diner in Whycocomagh, NS. The seafood chowder was recommended to me and I must say it was the best chowder I have ever tasted. It’s a complete meal!!!

Some day on fish! by Marilyn Melay

Some day on fish!

Bonavista, NL

During our three day staycation to the Bonavista peninsula, we spotted this clothesline of salted fish hung out to dry. We had great weather as we, sisters, spent some valuable time together exploring the many communities including our mother’s home town of King’s Cove, Bonavista Bay, NL. Can’t wait to do it again and maybe, just maybe, we’ll take the husbands along!

Cook, dine & wine in Maritimes - a Canadian staycation by WS Yam

Cook, dine & wine in Maritimes - a Canadian staycation

Summer 2015

As a landlocked Albertan immigrant from coastal Hong Kong, I've always wanted to visit the Maritimes for the amazing seafood. I finally joined the Culinary Institute of Canada in PEI for a professional cooking bootcamp; I learned how to cook lobsters, pick local produce and make new friends! We also dined on 18th century French cuisine with local Cape Breton Island ingredients at Fortress of Louisbourg, toasted wine at Vineyards near Wolfville, devoured Lobster rolls on Cabot Trail, and tasted fresh Digby scallops!

Iced Intimidation by Leslie Parham

Iced Intimidation

St. Martins, NB

18 year Java Bean faces one last challenge of the season! For our last camping trip for in Autumn we decided a short drive to St. Martins was perfect. We stayed at the picturesque Fundy Woods campground where we made new friends and leaned into Fall. No trip to the region is complete without stopping at Mary Kennedy's Octopus Ice Cream on the wharf. Never mind the handmade waffle cones or the specialty dishes. When I asked for the smallest vanilla soft serve in a cup. Mary replied do you want a "pup cup"? I had no idea what she was talking about. What a great idea! A minute later Java stood before a generous cup of ice cream with a chicken chew as a topper. The very best!

"Boujee" Carnival Treat

Kentville, Nova Scotia

My wife and I don't get to take many "dates" during the work week, but this particular day we were able to sneak away to the Maritime Express Cider Co. in Kentville, NS for lunch - a first time for both of us. When we saw that they had corn dogs on the menu, it took us back to those summer carnivals that toured the Maritimes with the sketchy, rickety rides and oodles of cotton candy, funnel cakes, and all sorts of other healthy foods! Now these were far more decadent, made with local sausage - delish!
