 buggy ride74 Old Blue Rocks Road, Garden Lots

Trot in Time started in 1996, with an old carriage in the owner’s front yard; basically a lawn ornament. One day a local senior suggested a horse be borrowed to take him for a ride in that buggy. After a good measure of work, including a full refit of the 1888-built cart by shipwright Lloyd Lantz, he got his ride.

The name Trot in Time came from a  elementary student contest won by then third grader, Claire Coulter.  Claire got a pizza party with her friends, in thanks for her great idea. The tour with Trot in Time is like stepping back in time complete with a real wooden carriage – a trot in time!

The first horse came from Gregg and Jenny Ernst  who live near Lunenburg.  Jenny had been doing wagon rides with her horse, Cindy, but with ten children it was getting too hard to manage that business. And so Cindy became Trot in Time‘s first steed. She retired in 2000 and laid down for a final rest in 2003. Please visit her beautiful memorial page.

In 2000 the owner of Trot in Time was able to buy a property, and restore the barn and an old Cape house, only 300 feet outside the Lunenburg town limits. From there, as the saying goes, it’s all history: Cindy and he hit the streets for buggy rides the next two years.

In the third year a horse called Bob was purchased. The fourth year a replica carriage was added… By the ninth year it was three carriages! Today they have six horses, four carriages, six drivers, a ranch hand, a wagon house, and an ever expanding pasture.

Faded hex-signs (painted barn designs) foretell of the magic charm of this antique farm. There are fertile fields,  acres of firewood, ocean views, a rustic guest house, and a mature garden setting.  This homestead is graced by the 150+ year old Cape with her black steel roofs and terracotta clapboard.

“There are an abundance of berries, heritage apples and plums and flowering perennial gardens thriving in the micro-climate of their venue.  The stalwart farmhouse embraces one as warmly and gently as does the land. To the southeast of this lush plateau, fertile pastures rise sharply to a high crest where there is a rustic two-story refuge with a rather stunning view of the sea.  On the backside of the crest of the hill is the farm wood lot. ” Tony Walters

For those Buyers able to pursue the property, the roadway uphill to the Cottage is drivable.

Lunenburg Nova Scotia Festivals

Lunenburg Santa arrives by Boat

Community involvement in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is very strong. People pull together to carry out a great many things. Besides the art, music festivals, and heritage tours, a new festivity hit the scene this winter: a boat themed Christmas Parade. For in Lunenburg, Santa arrives by Boat.

Now normally Santa arrived on a trawler in the harbour and it happens around St. Nicholas Day (a celebration in keeping with the Germanic heritage in Lunenburg).  The first St. Nicholas fest was started  by a local real estate company. Rumour has it there were European livestock as well as a saucy St. Nick.

This time the Lunenburg Board of Trade wanted to freshen up the concept, and suggested floats made of Doreys. These are special rowboats used by fishermen, yes I did not say fisherpersons. Fishers? The boats are often buff yellow, and they are visible in the fog.

Just check out the harbourfront buildings in Lunenburg and see how lively the colours are:Lunenburg Harbourfront boats and paint colours

So these merry wooden boats were propelled through the hilly streets of Lunenburg in an outrageous parade of holiday spirit. There were mermaid elves and Victorian carollers. The Rotary Club of Lunenburg underwrote the production, as their insurance covered non-profit events.

In all, the weather held long enough to do another parade in Bridgewater , for the Lahave River Valley Christmas Festival. But that’s another post
