I suppose it’s obvious since I’m posting this, but I’m back to work after my holiday in the Maritimes. My wife and I covered a lot of ground in a week, especially through the inspiring landscapes of Fundy National Park (NB) and Cape Breton (NS). If you happen to travel there one interesting stop is the Fortress at Louisbourg. Another is King’s Landing. What are they? Two places that recreate the daily living conditions of people in th 1700s and 1800s (respectively). Museums of a sort but instead of presenting dead artifacts from the past, they make those artifacts present in a very active way.
