a weekend in Clementsport

Last night I got back from a super lovely weekend in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. Very beautiful and lush and green with storybook little towns like Annapolis Royal and Bear River. We drove out with friends of mine from Newfoundland, Ros Ford and Jason Holley, who were in Halifax while Jason finished up a foundry course at NSCAD and offered up a roadtrip to us. We went out to visit friends of mine and Damien, professors from Grenfell College in Corner Brook, Stephen Rayner and Tamsin Clark. They bought a 150 year old farmhouse on 45 acres. It is a little slice of heaven. They have chickens, lots of things growing, are fixing up the place and in their own way, homesteading during the summer when they are not teaching sculpture and photography. They even have a Volkswagen van.....
