I'm seriously considering spending next summer in either Maine
or Nova Scotia
. I would sail up from Virginia, arriving around June 1, and spend three months there. I can't stand the summer heat in Virginia any longer! My ideal summer daytime weather
is about 75 degrees, sunny, moderate to low humidity, and a nice breeze. I think southeast Nova Scotia
is going to be a little colder, but I can deal with daytime highs in the mid-60s.
I work from "home" as an instructional designer
, so I would need to stay at a marina that has high-speed Internet service
. Groceries and laundry
within a bike ride's distance would be a requirement. I would rather be in or near a small town as opposed to a large town or city. I do plan to do some sailing, but since I'll be using vacation
time to sail up there and back to Virginia in September, my sailing will be limited to weekends.
First, any specific recommendations regarding marinas
in NS that would allow a three-month transient? Any other advice, information, or suggestions would be appreciated.
