Oil & Pop

    Newer Older

    You may remember the recent shot 'Got Gas' that I posted a little while back (below), well this is the other half of the scene. Taken near the Canning Look-Off in Kings County.

    Kings County is a county in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

    Kings County is located in central Nova Scotia on the shore of the Bay of Fundy with its northeastern part also forming the western shore of the Minas Basin.

    The part of the county residing in the Annapolis Valley comprises the agricultural heartland of the province and boasts over 600 farms; the area is famous for its fruit crops, primarily apples. As with most coastal parts of the Maritimes, Kings County's shoreline was home to a productive shipbuilding industry during the 1800s.

    Wolfville houses the highly ranked Acadia University. Cape Blomidon and the North Mountain preside over the Annapolis Valley, whereas the South Mountain and interior forests to the southern part of the county support a variety of lakes and recreational cottaging areas.

      I KNOW I came here to comment on this one before... something must have sidetracked me and stolen my attention away - a dog, a bird, a phone call, a husband............................ something shiny!! ; ))

      Having grown up in the country, I just love rustic shots like this. And it's funny... it's called "pop", "soda", "soft drink" - depending on *where* you grew up. However, having said that... one of my best friends and I grew up on the same road during our childhood and she calls it "pop", while I call it "soft drink". Go figger!! ; )
