Location: St. Louis, Missouri
Comments: My father Eldred Goodwin was born in Argyle Sound. Later his
parents built a house in Pubnico, the one on
page 1044. I visited that house every summer when I was a child
- from 1938 to maybe 1948. My last visit to Pubnico was in 1953. I see
my grandparents' home is now a Bed and Breakfast. The building on page
1043 was a gas station/garage/welding shop operated by my uncle - Maynard
Ross Goodwin. He, wife and son Gilbert shared the page 1044 house with
Name: Rick Deveau
Location: Victoria BC
Comments: Visited Yarmouth when I was 5 (1961)and again when I was 7
(1963) years old. My dad, Joseph Donald Deveau was from Yarmouth and had
a sister named Phylis. I remember meeting a Susan Deveau (I think we got
engaged that summer)and an Alfred. Yarmouth brings up memories of the Bluenose,
clams on the beach on Rapie Pie that no one seems to know anything about.
I also remember a man that raised mink and caught eels by throwing mink
guts in the creek and using a pitch fork to catch them when they came to
eat the mink guts.

Comments: A little 10 footer (the Mako on the forklift), hardley seems
very troubling to me. Ride the waves, surf and enjoy the beach..
You really are very safe. I have been pulled, tugged, pushed and
bumped on a surf board but never eaten for lunch as of yet by a shark.
Human just isn't tasty enough.

Location: Rensselaer, New York
Comments: I've visited Nova Scotia about a dozen times over the past
twenty years. Whenever I arrive at Yarmouth I make it a point to
drive or bike out to Cape Forchu. I love climbing to the higher points
above the lighthouse and gaze out towards the sea. I often find,
weather permitting, somewhere to sit and watch the waves crashing on the
basaltic rocks and imagine myself going out to sea as a passenger on the
vessels that traverse the waters. I'll be out there again on my 73rd
birthday this September 13th.
Name: Dick Poirier
Location: New York, New York
Comments: We have just returned from our first trip to Nova Scotia and
Isle Madame. To say that it was an absolutely fantastic trip would
be an understatement. Isle Madame is filled with million dollar views,
I can now understand why Uncle Tony Harding took every opportunity to take
that LONG trip from Massachusetts. The residents were so very friendly
and helpful. The accomodations at L'Auberge Acadienne were terrific.
The "meat pie" just like my grandmother made brought back a flood of memories.
Naomi and Willard Fougere are the perfect hosts right down to the offer
of tea at the kitchen table. The icing on the cake however was meeting
my father's first cousin, Marie Kehoe. Marie's first words to me
were about my grandmother: "Aunt Ina was my favorite". Marie can't
realize how happy that made me. Thank you all for a wonderful visit.

Comments: I was impressed to find a web page devoted to Sand Beach. I have just inherited a bit of land there and am pondering what I will do with it. If I am not mistaken, it is directly across the road from the house shown in 09.jpg on page 6 of Sand Beach Photos. We call that Mrs Moore's house. No idea if that's correct or the history behind that. I am looking forward to learning more about the history of the area.
I'd love to find an aerial photo of Sand Beach but have not found one yet.

Comments: At first, I was thinking it couldn't be real because real
sharks don't jump out of the water. Dolphins will, but not sharks. Sharks
have to constantly be moving in the water in order to breathe. So I did
some searching in Google to see what I could find, either an actual news
article or some site like this and...well, guess what I found?
Name: Joyce (Rogers) Driscoll
Location: Wakefield, Massachusetts, USA
Comments: I'm certain that my father's mother and father (grandfather
Rogers and grandmother Marchant) emigrated to Lynn, Massachusetts from
Yarmouth, NS around 1912. My parents are gone now and although father and
mother never got to see Nova Scotia, I carry them in my heart with every
visit.I remember my grandmother being called squaw and speaking only French.
We were told her family owned an Indian trading post on an island. Someday
I will stay long enough to research my heritage.Joyce (Rogers)Driscoll

Comments: In late Sept. we are thinking of taking the CAT from Bar Harbor
to Yarmouth. Is this too far for a one day trip? We will have
to pay for our full week in Southwest Harbor no matter what we do.
If it would be better to stay overnight in Yarmouth, would there be any
inexpensive places to stay?

and woods back to Oakland Lake. Hope to get back soon.
Comments: What are autumns like. IT seems more like pine tree
country up there. When does summer end? How long is autumn?
It's very hot down here in Texas right now. Sometimes it's like I've
done something very bad and been sent to hell. Traffic in Dallas...hmmm..sludge
in the air, and freeways are a total misnomer....I was in Lansing, Michigan
a little over a year ago. Traffic on the worst days were Sunday midnights
here if there isn't a wreck holding you up. It's probably much cooler
up there right now and the air would not make me cough. Enjoy your
peace and clean and the wonderful clear views. God bless you all with prosperous
a year followed by a more prosperous year that is happy and filled with
