place. Rock-strewn Canadian fishing port a few inlets down from the more picturesque Peggy's Cove. Famous for exporting crabs in the summer and harbouring hardy yacht painters and stone sculptors over the long, dreary winters.

The isolation of frigid winters, when the inlet freezes and tourists cannot reach the island, has bred a certain ruggedness into the local folk who pass the dark winter evenings with their scrabble competitions, squid jigging and deboer knitting.

Delightful views of the "famous-six" churches are available from anywhere in town due to the lack of other buildings .

Isn't that Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia I hear calling me?

No. I think that's Peggy's Cove again.

A tiny coastal village on the south shore of Nova Scotia that is famous for its three churches that are separated by short stretch of lawn and some cracked pavement : Anglican, United and Lutheran. Summer Tourists swarm like locusts to take pictures of these churches and of sailing vessels and small yachts. Locals that make up the top three percent who can afford boats are rather a snobbish and wealthy lot. The locals like to sail, shop for expensive shoes at the trading company, feast on fair trade coffee and lobster sandwiches, and drive Daddy’s BMW. Most of the folk that work for this lot make minimum wage and work at Tim Horton’s or the Save Easy. They carefully save their pay so they, too, can buy a rambling mansion overlooking the cove or preferably, one built on an island.
Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, is a great place to drive your beamer while sipping Perrier and pretend your shit doesn't stink. Make sure you tip the working locals who work hard to maintain the illusion of wealth and prosperity.
