I regret to inform you that summer is coming to an end, and everyone in these parts is gearing up to return to school and work with renewed enthusiasm. Or something like that. As we head into the last long weekend of summer, do what you can to cram as much summer fun as possible into the weekend. Over on Novascotia.com, I recapped the greatest hits of this summer and issued a call to make the most out of the long weekend ahead.

Also, for the record, friends with family cottages are the best friends.
