Wolfville and the Blomidon Inn

This post was written by Lucy Smith from the soprano section. Here she is enjoying a big lobster.


After a relatively short drive from Antigonish, we arrived in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Us newbies were particularly excited to see our home for the next two days: The Blomidon Inn.

A Nova Scotia sea captain's mansion, built in the 19th century, this has been a favorite of VCC'ers since the choir started coming to Wolfville 18 years ago.

We had a great workshop with Acadia University's choirs, and sang a concert to a very appreciative audience.

After the concert, we retired to the drawing room and had a lovely evening curled up in wingback chairs in front of the fire.

After a refreshing sleep in a four poster bed, it was time for our day off. The sun rose bright and warm over Wolfville and we decided to take advantage of the unseasonable weather and go for a walk in the marshes.

After a week of concerts it was so rejuvenating to blow off some steam in the wind and sun.
