April has been a busy month both around Truro and for the Belgravia family and my updates have been lacking! We’ve been kept busy with many different things this month: The Truro Music Festival, Easter, the local high school’s musical: “The Wizard of Oz”, highland dance exams, end-of-the-year curling banquet, choir, taxes, training for the Bluenose running weekend, visits with friends, and lots of guests! Just last night we had drop-ins from Germany, and earlier this week we had a gentleman from Argentina staying with us! It’s so fun to make these connections with people from all over the world!
Unfortunately, the situation with the volcanic ash from Iceland shutting down airports across Europe has hit a little bit too close to home. D’Arcy’s parents set out for Budapest yesterday, as they were intending to cruise the Danube for the next two weeks. We got a message this morning that their trip has been cancelled, but we don’t know at the moment how far they got! Yikes!
We have been getting lots of inquiries and bookings and it looks like it’s going to be a great summer. Nova Scotia Tourism has relaunched the official Nova Scotia website, full of links to videos, blogs, photos, packages and more! We encourage anyone who is planning a trip to Nova Scotia to bookmark this site! It can be found by clicking here: www.novascotia.com
We’re on the fly again this weekend with three Boys’ choirs in town for a concert. I’m responsible for making sure 120 growing boys get fed tomorrow night! Back to the kitchen…
