Gentle Yoga at the Ocean
This experience is in Upper Cape, New Brunswick. Meet at my private waterfront location for a stimulating yoga and mindful session. I lead a group of 1 - 6 people in gentle and invigorating yoga postures and blend in meditation and mindful techniques throughout. Each session will be uniquely tailored to each participant from beginners to intermediate abilities. You will have a guided meditation at the beginning of the session to center and prepare yourselves for an invigorating practice. You will warm up with gentle stretches and breathing exercises, and flow into a revitalizing practice with standing, seated and supine postures. You will be provided with verbal, visual and manual (optional) adjustments based on your body and your preferences. You will end with a deep relaxation segment.
Scenic coastal tour in an expedition Zodiac - Lunenburg
Are you a "road-less-travelled" kind of person? Would you like to experience a beautiful, less touristy part of Nova Scotia? Join us for a 2-hour Zodiac coastal tour through Tanner's Pass and Lunenburg's back passage — a pristine part of the Atlantic Ocean. Our tour is in a professional, 19-foot Zodiac MilPro. These popular vessels are the black, inflatable boats you find on expedition ships around the world. They're also the boats we operate as photographers and guides in Antarctica and the Canadian sun-arctic. So what will we see? It is common to see Atlantic grey seals, osprey, great blue herons, mink, and deer (among other fauna) as we Explore the South Shore. We’ll also talk about flora and geology as we cruise Tanner’s Pass, Schooners Cove, Heckman’s Island and the back passage. It truly is one of the prettiest parts of Nova Scotia! Will the tour operate in rain, wind or fog? We absolutely explore in light rain, wind and fog! That’s part of the adventure! That said, we keep a close eye on marine weather forecasts and if we have any safety concerns, we will contact you the day of the tour. It’s also important to be prepared to get at least a little wet. We’re not whitewater rafting, but there’s still a very good chance water will come over the bow. Please contact us if you have any questions at all!

We have rooms and can create a Wreath Workshop Weekend just for you. Ask for more details. Note: Labrador Retrievers are part of the experience.
Three Sisters Sea Kayaking Day Tour
Let me take you kayaking on the world's biggest tides, on the Bay of Fundy. We will paddle in the spectacularly scenic and remote Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Geopark, where North America once separated from Africa, and the evidence is still visible in the cliffs today: Lava flows, fossils, colourful rock formations steeped in indigenous storytelling, and arches to paddle through. A highlight of the tour are the Three Sisters rock spires, which we will kayak through while I take photographic memories to take home. We will stop at a remote beach that used to be one of the busiest shipyards along the Fundy shore during the age of sail. Today, it is a heaven of serenity, where we might find remnants of the past in an old horseshoe or parts of the historic wharf once the tide recedes. Here, we might see a bald eagle fly over, hear kingfishers chatter and see curious seals poke their heads out of the Bay. We settle down on driftwood for a home-made meal fresh from my organic garden. Upon paddling back, the tide will be well into the ebb, so areas where we previously paddled through are now sitting high and dry - an incredible sight. The paddling time both ways is about 1.5 hrs, with an hour for the picnic. I will provide all the gear needed, food, photos and instructions on how to paddle and steer the kayaks, and am a certified kayaking guide.

Learning how to create a hooked rug on the Cabot Trail
The 100th anniversary of the famed “Cheticamp Hooked Rug” is fast approaching. These rugs, once made to warm the floors, eventually became a source of family income. The women in the area would hook throughout the year and during the quiet Winter months some of the fisherman and lumberjack husbands would join them. It quickly became a cottage industry. This craft has now become a well-known art medium sold across the world as the Chéticamp-style hooked rugs. Come share in this little piece of our local Acadian history by participating in one or more classes offered to all. The classes are available to people of all levels; from those who have never held a “hook”, to those who wish to perfect their skills. Come join us once or as often as you desire. We have local recognized “hookers” joining us. Learn a new art form while having loads of fun!
