On August 23, 2001, Curly had his first adventure in Nova Scotia, Canada.

The first stop was to the Memorial Site of Swiss Air Flight 111 which crashed off the coast of Nova Scotia in September of 1998, killing all 229 passengers and crew aboard.

It wasn't a clear sunny day, but I think in order to give the site the proper reverence, the cloud and mist say it all.

Pictures of our famous Lighthouse at

Peggy's Cove.

The Village of Peggy's Cove has a year round population of approx. 50 residents. The most remarkable visible characteristic of the area is the granite rock. Huge boulders picked up and deposited 10,000 years ago by the last retreating glaciers are scattered randomly in and about Peggy's Cove. Earlier glaciers already had removed most of the soil and loose rocks exposing the 415 million year old "DEVONIAN" granite that you see around you. The Lighthouse (which during the summer months is the home of the post office) is anchored in rock and is the only post office/lighthouse in North America. It is a major tourist attraction on the South Shore.
