Why I chose Liverpool for my home.....

New website promoting liverpool - New Website
My first trip to Nova Scotia was in the mid 80's, back during a time when technology and economic growth in the rest of the world was moving on at a much faster pace.  I have visited Nova Scotia many times over the years and loved it more and more each time; always thinking that it would be the ideal place to retire. 

Well here I am in Liverpool and this is my story..... During one perfect summer, in July 2008, I was once again in Nova Scotia.  This time more as a tour guide sharing all of the places that I had visited over the years long past while visiting Nova Scotia; stopping in places like Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, Mahone Bay, Shelburne, Yarmouth, Digby, Wolfville, Annapolis Royal, and even onto the many touristy spots on Prince Edward Island.  But what was so different about this visit was that I came to Liverpool, Nova Scotia, for the first time; not a planned stop but simply because it was on the Lighthouse Route.  The thoroughfare led us along the tree lined streets, casting shadows upon the historical buildings with their elegant architecture bursting with beauty, and alongside the Mersey River where it merges with the sea.  The  tranquility left us spellbound and longing for the sounds that once filled the streets when it was a bustlinging seaport with ship building and logging. Following a lovely lunch at the Mersey Hotel we left Liverpool to complete our journey along the Lighthouse Route, including the tour of PEI.  It was while we were enjoying a delightful scallop dinner, in Digby, overlooking the beautiful and captivating Bay of Fundy that we suddenly had a longing to visit Liverpool just once more before leaving this province.  With a confirmed reservation at the Mersey Hotel, we returned and it only took 3 short days of living in Liverpool, not unlike those many others that we have since met, before we began the process of buying a home here.
Now we step down from our own doorstep onto the beautiful streets of Liverpool, to enjoy the laid back, old fashioned, atmosphere that still remains in this remarkable Canadian Atlantic town, with  its lifestyle that never goes out of style.
