I know that it's President's Day in the States, and in a lot of Canada the third Monday in February has for a long time been a holiday, called Family Day in many provinces. Nova Scotia, however, never had a holiday in February until two years ago when our province decided to join the club and make this Monday a day off, calling it Heritage Day. I spent the day with a couple sisters, borrowed two nephews and a niece, and hit a few of the local museums. First stop: the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum.
Next stop: lunch.
Off to the Museum of Natural History:
Visited Gus, the resident 95 year old turtle... he can often be found walking about the museum floor, but today would not budge from under his heat lamp.
The museum currently has a "dragon" exhibit with a lot of lizards, etc.:
One last stop: the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
Me: "Look at these amazing ship models!" Kids: "Guns!!"
