Comments: Many trips to beautiful Nova Scotia, three of them to Ste
Anne du Ruisseau which is where we believe our Grandmother, Mary ellen
Muse, aka Nellie Parker, was born. Have been told she was Mi'kmaq.
Anne Muse was her mother according to her marriage license. Hopefully I'm
not too old to make the trip again as the not-knowing haunts me. I love
your province. It has so much beauty and many secrets. Trying for
a late spring trip in 2009. Warmest regards, Barbara, Quincy, Ma.

Comments: My husband's family is from Prince Edward Island, but we would
like to explore all of the area. Nova Scotia is of particular interest,
especially for birding. The Tusket Islands are also intriguing, not
just for the lore of Outer Baldonia, but in general, and right now we are
trying to figure out exactly where they are from maps rather than description.
Hard to do online, but we'll keep trying. Thanks for your site, since
it finally gave me a clearer location that I can use on the maps we do

Comments: Thank you for my 'virtual' tour of Pubnico! I lived in Middle
East Pubnico about 40 years ago when my dad (Maurice Skillen) worked at
Sealife Fisheries. My children have been asking recently about my time
in canada so this allowed me to give them a small insight of where I spent
my 7th and 8th Birthdays! It brought back some lovely memories--- maybe
some day I will bring them to Pubnico to show them for 'real' where I lived.
My main friends were Joanne D'Entremont, Kathy Amirault , and PAuline Amirault.
I am in touch with Pauline via Facebook, but I would love to hear from
anyone else who knew me!!!

Comments: Hi Patricia Brittain Stewart,spent a week at
Darlings Lake last July, stayed at the Cabins by the lake.
I remember the saw mill there at darlings lake. I grew up in Port Maitland.
Not knowing your age, wonder if you had a brother named Charlie who lived
on your street on the right, cannot remember if it was directly across
from the mill or not. I knew the Woods that owned the motel, cabins etc.
back in the 40,s 50,s. Please let me know, charlie was a good friend of
mine and went to school at Port maitland.. Sincerely, Mel

Comments: During the 60s my parents owned a house in Central Argyle
which we visited every summer - we lived in Pennsylvania. My father,
born and "raised" in Philadelphia loved Nova Scotia. I seem to remember
being in Tusket one time and reading that Benjamin Franklin's son lived
there about the time of the American Revolution - he was a Tory.
I also think something I read said that Tusket was named Franklintown at
one time - can't find anything on the web to verify this. Please
let me know if you have any information. Thanks!

Comments: Dear Friends,
We recently had dinner with Father John Matheson, S.J., and the conversation
turned to places in Nova Scotia. Father grew up in Middle East Pubnico,
while my home was in Annapolis Royal. I mentioned to him that on the end
wall of the sunporch in our home, was a huge map of NS which covered the
entire surface of the wall. I was fascinated by the number of places bearing
the name of Pubnico - north, south, east, west - and all points in between!
You have a marvelous website and I am thoroughly enjoying browsing through
With every good wish to all the inhabitants of all the Pubnicos,
