Christmas Slow Down

Things are going to slow down here at the Annapolis Heritage Society / Annapolis Royal Heritage blog for a little while. Yep, I am taking a bit of time away from my desk. I am also going to be visiting family in eastern Ontario for a couple of weeks.

At this point, my plan is to make a few posts while I am away but they will not be as frequent as they usually are. What I am going to try to do, is to find people, places, buildings or stories in Ontario which I can relate to Annapolis Royal heritage. I am not totally sure how this will work at this point, but that is the plan.

During my trip I already know that I will be going back to visit some of my personal heritage roots. This is partially for an article I am writing for Edifice Magazine, (yes, that is a horrible bit of name dropping) partially to look back at where my interest in heritage has come from but mostly to bring my four year old son to some of the places I remember and to see them through his eyes. At this point we are planning a trip to Upper Canada Village (where I made countless school trips and had my first museum job) as well as to some of the national museums in Ottawa. I am also looking forward to seeing some of eastern Ontario's field stone houses. I have always appreciated these buildings with their rustic charm. As stone is not a common building material in this part of Nova Scotia, it will be nice to compare and contrast building styles.

All for now,
