It has been quite a month. From quarantine to purchasing a house. 🏡🏡😷
Hello friends, Paul and I are on the move again. As the saying goes" There is never a dull moment", that is an understatement in Paul's and my life at the moment.
Last year, before the pandemic happened, Paul and I took a few days off from our busy life in Golden to check out Nova Scotia, particularly the Annapolis and Digby area.
The Annapolis area is absolutely pristine, dotted with history and century-old houses. The oceanic lined streets housed many galleries and museums.
We then head off to Digby, as we drove into town, there was a sense of excitement when we saw this bustling fishing village, jeweled by the colorful fishing vessels and masses protruding into the blue sky.
This authentic little town, perhaps a little rough around the edges captured our hearts. I can't exactly tell you what it is about Digby's vibe, but the smell of the salt air thickens the experience and the friendliness of the locals furthermore warmed our spirits.
That summer, we went back to British Columbia completely inspired to make a change. And making a change we did. But the timing of moving to Nova Scotia was not quite right, so we sold our house and took a four months trip to further our business knowledge through traveling and making contacts with various artisans.
We returned to Canada in the midst of the pandemic. In July, when the Maritime borders opened, Paul and I returned to the Maritime, searching for our next gallery location, our search brought us from New Brunswick to Nova Scotia. We looked at various villages and towns and we heard Digby calling again.
I find it completely serendipitous that this little fishing village spurred our trip last year and now it comes back full circle. In a month from now, we will be moving to Digby, Nova Scotia.
We bought a house and scouted a new location for the gallery and are in the process of moving our entire life and business to Digby Nova Scotia. If you want to follow our journey, please sign up for our newsletter below : https://www.tingyuenart.com/sign-up-and-follow-us-on-our-new-journey.html
