* Travel to the nearby university town of [[Wolfville]], where at sundown something very intriguing happens in a tiny park. Surrounded by car lots a block off the main street is '''Robie Swift Park''' and there stands a lone chimney from a long-gone dairy plant. At about sunset chimney swifts flit and circle the chimney before entering for the night. This event is watched by many people, though sadly the number of swifts has declined over the years due to a population of merlins nesting nearby. If you see nothing else in Wolfville, see this. It is so uplifting. Also visit the local bookshop for an excellent selection of books.
