I was just doing a quick surf and came across this blog.

It has some interesting observations of NS, from someone who is NS bound - complete with photo's of towns and comments as they do a recce.

Thought it might be of interest to the OP.

That's quality. They had an open night at our local one as they were touting for votes for a new patio. There was a fat grumpy bloke behind the bar who was really pissed off there were so many customers. They have a Sunday night meat raffle but I don't they do a darts night.

We have a fat grumpy bloke behind our bar too. I think it all adds to the atmosphere.

No meat draw here. I think its because everyone poaches anyway so no real call for one

I am curious as to why you chose to build your home in an area that sucks big time where the quality of air sucks too.
Has that all changed since your house was completed?

Thanks - I thought it had some interesting comments and I liked the descriptions of the different towns from a potential relocation point of view.

I stumbled upon it when I put in a search for "the good, the bad, the ugly, Nova Scotia"

I live up that way and we love this area. Not too near that awful pulp mill though belching out smoke 24/7. Would depress me seeing that every day although it is a huge employer for the locals and has been since before I moved here so who am I to complain.

Anyhow back to the local area. Extremely lovely people with big hearts who would do anything for you and rally round when anyone needs support. Always lots going on in our community and lots of free stuff too. We both enjoy our jobs. OH works extremely hard even for a man half his age. Travels all over NS and often in NB too. I retrained and work in mental health (shifts 365) which can be very hard work but is very rewarding and Lots of fun too!

I am not even bothered by the winter - only lasts about 3-4 months on the east coast anyway. I still get out and about and hockey season makes it more enjoyable for sure.

I guess life is what you make it no matter where you live. We are that kind of people and I for one would certainly move if I was unhappy because bitterness is unhealthy. Also, can I make a point that people who are happy, especially after a few years are not wearing rose tinted specs. It pees me off when others say that because they are not happy in their lives. I can tell you that life is more beautiful when you are happy for others
