We had great summer in Grand Manan, New Brunswick and on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. We led sea kayak trips for Kevin Sampson's Adventure High. It was a good year for herring in the Bay of Fundy, which meant a good year for porpoise and minke whale sightings.  It also happened to be a good year for the End of Summer music festival there - Michael Feurstack, Weather Report, Jon McKiel and Paper Beats Scissors played ocean-side on a flatbed trailer-turned stage, in the little festival that could (and did) totally rock. After we had satiated ourselves with dulse and few months of island life, we left to enjoy the warm autumn weather and a feast of fresh mackerel on the South Shore. We took some time off to go kayaking at the Keji Seaside Adjunct, Blue Rocks, the LaHave Islands and many islands in Mahone Bay. The LaHave Islands so thoroughly enchanted us such that we are returning to set up shop there in the new year. We met Joe Laird, the long time kayak tour operator in the area. He recently retired, but he is still filled with enthusiasm about his home. He told us all about the trips he used to run, and showed us some of the fibreglass kayaks he designed and built. He even made kayaks with see-through bottoms, so you could watch the lobsters crawl along the ocean floor!

We returned to our apartment in Montreal in October - but LaHave hasn't been far from our minds. We're looking forward to our return in the new year. For now, it's back to packing though. We return to Antarctica to work for Quark Expeditions in less than a week. Even though it's not our first season, it still feels extraordinary to be traveling to such a remote part of the world while the rest of Canada hunkers down for the quickly approaching winter. But more on Antarctica later....
