CBC Radio 2 Song Quest Update

I've been flirting with Word Press trying to build a case for Carter's Beach, Nova Scotia. Ah, it's a long story. I got wrapped up in the Great Canadian Song Quest with CBC Radio 2. You can read the whole story if you go back a couple posts.

Anyhow, my photo of Sam on the Carter's Beach (he's carrying the green pail) has drawn a lot of interest from across Canada...North America, even. Last week, Lily in Toronto phoned to interview Sam and I about our favourite beach and the CBC Podcast is available here. We're in Episode II...you may want to listen to Episode I to add a bit of perspective.

Anyhow - I'm having lots of fun. It's been very cool for Sam (age 9) to be involved too, seems how he's in the picture and all.

Chris' guitar is complete. It's home, sleeping in the case right now. I've got a few photos to show you with my next entry...maybe even a video clip. Hold tight.

Take care.

Chris' Acoustic Guitar

Chris started building this guitar back in March. It's nearly finished now and it sure is pretty. Sides and back are cherry, spruce top, mahogany neck, etc. As unique and beautiful as he is.

Here are a few pics of it for you. Just about 4 hours left to go...apparently. Strings need to be strung, etc.

Thank God for men like Paul Casey and Grep Pelkey for inviting a 14 year old into something grand. Truly, an amazing gift.

Slow Cooking Cover Gem

Well, I'm just throwing stuff out there in fits and spurts these days. Here's a little video of the kids at the Mug & Anchor Pub in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Full house and a little sample of some home cooked goodness from Chris, Jon, Daniel, Claire and Matt. Slow Cooking Cover.

Moby Dick in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

I dropped a couple kids off at the skateboard park in Lunenburg the other night. Come to discover...the new moive, Moby Dick is being filmed right now in Lunenburg and Shelburne here in Nova Scotia. Snapped a couple pics the other night. Stars Ethan Hawke among others.

Dig that cool green screen? Must have been a break in the action 'cause one of the deck hands was grappling a plastic water bottle. They probably didn't have them in the old days right?

I wandered down to the Bluenose II berth. Here she is:
