New Photo Section on LaHave River and Islands

I’ve been lucky to be able to explore the LaHave River and the LaHave Islands by car, sailboat, dinghy and on foot.  It is a very special area.  Samuel de Champlain was impressed enough with it when his ship landed in Green Bay in 1604, on their way to Port Royal, to encourage the king of France to establish it as the first capital of New France.  And in 1632, Louis XII’s orders to do so were carried out by the Viceroy, Isaac de Razilly.

The first school in Nova Scotia was established there. A new French Acadian school is currently being built outside Bridgewater, not far from the banks of the LaHave River, and the road leading to it will be named after Champlain.  (See the website of the École de la Rive-Sud, which I maintain.)

So it is with great pleasure that I unveil a new section of the Nova Scotia Photo Album dedicated to the LaHave River and Islands.  Drumroll please…
