Nova Scotia Road Trip! - 2002

Then we drove around and found the house that Pat lived in until the family emigrated to Massachusetts when she was 7. We saw her Aunt Vang ’ s home, St. Ambrose ’ s Cathedral where her parents were married and she went to church as a youngster, the site of her grade school (the building is no longer there), the Cemetery where Betty is buried (we saw the beautiful gravestone that Edgar had selected with a laser engraving of the cabin, the woods and the lake). The grocery store her uncle Louis ran is now a Freshmarket and Rosey ’ s where she bought penny candy is no more. Yarmouth does not appear to be nearly as prosperous as Halifax and is a much smaller city. The area where Pat grew up was really pretty rural but now is just part of the suburbs.
