Sunday Morning Coffee

Sunday mornings I usually take time to catch up on stories I may not have time to read through the week. I thought I would share some that caught my eye this week.

365 days of capturing Nova Scotia’s beauty on film – Nova Scotia – CBC News

What a year it has been for Dave Culligan and what a gift for the rest of us! He started his 365 project by posting a 60 second video every day, typically showing off our province’s beauty. I loved them all and looked forward to them each day. While I am sad to see his project end, I can’t wait to see what’s next for Dave!

Check out some of his Top 5 favorite videos from this past year in this CBC story.
