Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada

Took a walk around Digby yesterday just to enjoy the sunny day. Digby is a city in Nova Scotia established in 1783 by a group of United Empire Loyalists Have a look at the town’s web site for details. The history can be found here – See also the Wikipedia write up on the town ttps://,_Nova_Scotia

Digby bills itself as the “Scallop Capitol of the World”. Certainly the best tasting scallops are harvested by the Digby scallop fishing fleet. I always enjoy seeing the scallop boats tied up at the Digby wharf.

A stroll along the boardwalk is a great pastime on a sunny afternoon.

Digby is also home to the Wharf Rat Rally on the first weekend of September each year which is the largest annual motorcycle rally in this part of Canada.

If you want to explore more of the Maritimes you can take the ferry Fundy Rose from Digby to New Brunswick

Cabin Painted

As of last year my cabin in Lake La Rose, Nova Scotia had not been painted in over 30 years. It was looking pretty nasty.

So last year Sean Moreside (Donna’s Nephew) and Dwight Moreside (Donna’s Brother) helped me paint it. However, we ran out of time and did not get the porch floor painted. This year I painted the porch and it makes the place look much better.

Just for grins, here is a video clip that I made in 2015 after I got the storage shed.

The Jimmy Flynn Comedy Show – Digby Arena – July 6, 2019

On July 5th-7th, 2019 Digby Nova Scotia presented the annual Lobster Bash. It is billed as a celebration to promote the Lobster Industry in South West Nova Scotia. At 9:00 pm Donna and I attended one of the events, a comedy show by maritime comedian Jimmy Flynn. This post covers our impression of the show. You can read about Jimmy on his web site at –

Donna and I Waiting for the Show to Start

Before the show his wife was selling Jimmy Flynn merchandise. I just had to get a bobble-head doll. Jimmy offered to autograph it.

I just had to get a picture with Jimmy.

We had a really great time at the show and enjoyed his brand of humor; we laughed a lot. His show is billed a “adult entertainment” and it certainly is. Anyone who is offended by “off color” or “sexually explicit” humor should stay away. We were not offended

Blow is a clip of some of the cleanermaterial that I recorded from the show. It will give you a taste of his country style humor. I loved it

He also sings. Here is a YouTube of one of his songs :-
