This is one of the several big production numbers during the excellent 2014 Nova Scotia Tattoo with massed pipe bands, Scottish dancers and a few other little surprises which I won't spoil for you. It was slightly odd but it worked brilliantly and was great to watch.
This was the wonderful moment when our 33 year old and rather decrepit campervan (RV) turned ofer the clock from 99,999.9 to 00,000.0 which is a thing I never thought I would get to see happen in a motor vehicle. It was quite touching in a strange way.
Regrettably the poor old bus was not long for this world and it finally blew up and died a couple of weeks later but fortunately on the last day of the trip and only about 100 miles from home.
She was a comfortable old bus and gave us an abolutely wonderful six week trip. I remember her very fondly and I shall miss her.
An excellent musical interlude whilst the crew were setting up for the next act. Several members of the drum corps were playing plastic bins whilst dressed as trawlermen. Great fun with great music and dancing.
We walked into the pub and the others were signing Copperhead Road - that started singing for the next 3 hours. The girls would say to Fergy 'What are you singing next?' NOT 'Did you want to sing.' Was quite funny.
Nova Scotia, on the south east of Canada, is a place of intrigue and beauty, and the regions’ South Shore epitomises that. Not only are there dozens of proud lighthouses standing watch along this rugged coast there are also quaint small towns, like Lunenburg and Shelburne, with historic streetscapes so unchanged you feel as though you might just have entered a centuries-wide time warp. This video shows a few of the highlights of the South Shore.
