Out Of The Blue

Our move to Liverpool came right out of the blue. It had never occurred to either Danny or me that we would one day live here in beautiful Liverpool, Nova Scotia. It was never a part of the long term plan.

One summer Danny prepared to visit a friend who had previously moved to Liverpool. I was still working and had commitments I could not ignore.  So this was an adventure that he took by himself.

Driving right through from Montreal and arriving quite late, he booked a room at Lanes’ Privateer Inn a prefect little hotel that offered not only a room but what soon turned out to be the start of our new life.

That evening, restless from being in the car for too many hours, he took a walk around town to see the sights.  It was at this time that he was taken back by the beauty of his surroundings and the peaceful feeling; from where he stood looking across the bay at this beautiful little town.  For a couple of days he marveled at the sights, all within such a short distance from where he was staying. There was beauty in every direction that he drove.  His first impression of Liverpool is that he felt such warmth and comfort here.

It was but a short week later that I took the road trip back with him, not quite knowing what it was that Danny was so excited about.  Let me tell you that Danny is not the type of person to go on and on about anything, yet he could not stop describing the wonderful little town and how he felt while visiting Liverpool. 

It was when we drove over the Little Blue Bridge, onto Market Street, that I could see that Liverpool is certainly beautiful.  Liverpool is one of Canada’s best kept secrets, I am certain.

I am intrigued with the history and the numerous museums throughout the area; but it is the raw beauty of the ocean and seascapes that totally captivates me.

Liverpool, Nova Scotia is now home for us.
