Aug 16-17 Pictou 

We left Ballantynes Cove bright & early for our next destination of Pictou. It was a lively sail in 18-23 kn winds. At the Hector Quay Marina, we looked up Al and Alta (friends we met last year) and met them for a brew at the local pub house. The next day, they picked us up at ten and we drove to New Glasgow for a town tour and lunch. We had a tour of an early 1900's residence which is now a funeral home. The owner is a friend of Al's and he graciously showed us around. Obviously it was built by a very wealthy family, the original woodwork in the place is simply amazing.  No wonder people are dying to see the place.....

We took in the evening show at the  deCoste Centre on the history of Pictou told through song and dance. We have to remember to pronounce it as PicTOE not PicTOO. PicTOO is a sure sign that you 'come from away'.
