The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia was formerly the Dominion Building, the restoration was completed in 1989. The building is constructed of brown sandstone quarried at Marys Point, New Brunswick. During the restoration is was discovered this particular stone was of a colour and texture unlike any of the Nova Scotia sandstone quarries. The old Marys Point Quarries were reopened for a short period of time and the stone necessary for the Art Gallery Restoration was removed. The building is beautiful, the carved detail is amazing.
We will be going to the Oak Island Inn for Mom's birthday meal, that is providing Hurricane Juan does not show up early. You can see the famous Oak Island from the resort, the island is said to have buried treasure.
The treasure pit at Oak Island, is almost 200 feet deep, protected by an elaborate set of booby traps (underground channels to an ocean beach over 500 feet away), has been the subject of countless excavations since 1795, costing millions of dollars, and the death place of ten treasure hunters, and they still haven’t found the treasure…
Many theories are in existence ranging from a pirate’s bounty of riches to the final resting place of the Holy Grail. One thing is certain, whatever is hidden beneath the pit, it was not intended to be discovered without a struggle. For over 200 years treasure hunters have been trying to unearth its secret.
