Update June 30, 2012: The Grand Pré Landscape has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

It was a full day with another Operation Hometown Traveler adventure to the Annapolis Valley. One of the more dazzling sights is this statue of Evangeline, heroine of Longfellow’s epic poem about the Acadian expulsion from present-day Nova Scotia. You can visit her for yourself at Grand Pré National Historic Site in Grand Pré, Kings County, Nova Scotia.
