The early morning Atlantic Ocean shimmers like a trillion tiny diamonds as I push our stroller toward the magnificent main lodge at White Point Beach Resort on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. The air is cold, the sun is bright.

A Cool California Christmas

Holiday-Ice-LA-Live

A friend of mine showed off a picture on his phone: “Check it out!” I wasn’t very impressed by the image in front of me: a bunny hill, notable only in that it was very busy. “So?” I yawned. “It’s inside a mall!” Sure enough, closer inspection of the small screen revealed ceiling instead of sky […]
