The promise of spring and exploring

The warmer weather outside today has reminded me that there will be in fact a spring at some point and that has me itching to explore. Oddly enough, however, my usual longing to some far away lands has been replaced with a whole new desire to explore closer to home. No worries, I’m sure the usual travel bug will be back soon enough, but for now I am quite enjoying this new found close-to-home bug!

There is so much to see and so much to do within a driving to our home that I would be the typical crankster not to go out and truly enjoy them!

Here’s a list of 10 not-so-far-away things I would like to do this year:

1- Snowshoeing or hiking in the Kouchibouguac National park .

2- Go walking in a nearby unnamed( as far as I know) bird sanctuary.

3- Apple picking in Annapolis Valley

4- Go canoeing or kayaking

5- Visit the Moncton Zoo

6- Day at the Irving Nature Park in New Brunwick to see the seals and hike.

7- Zip lining in Antigonish

8- Go to Halcon in Halifax

9- White water rafting in Shubenacadie

10- Take a day trip to Halifax in the summer, potentially during the buskers festival.

What are some great things to do near you?
