The Golden Hour

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

There is a time in the evening just before sunset—not every day, but a clear day with a little dust in the sky—when the whole world is briefly bathed in soft yellow-orange light. Photographers call this the “Golden Hour,” and if you’re down at the shore when this happens you feel extremely special. The red capes literally glow, and everything pauses while the sun blesses t

Coffee News

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

Minh Hoang Truong pours hot water into a small metal cylinder that sits on a drinking glass. Inside the cylinder is finely ground coffee. I lift the lid of the cylinder, stick my nose in and smell strong coffee and, although there’s none in it, chocolate. The coffee drips slowly onto a layer of sweetened condensed milk.

When the coffee has dripped through, I remove the

Shake and Howdy

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

This month I want to talk about a couple of Bluegrass festivals happening on the Island in July.

First of all the PEI Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival is happening on July 4, 5 and 6 at the festival grounds in Rollo Bay. This year’s festival features Audie Blaylock and Redline from Indiana, Shannon Slaughter and County Clare from Alabama, and Art Stevenson and High W

Road Food

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I am eating lunch in a parking lot and I don’t mind a bit. Hush puppy? Po’boy? Food truck? It sounds like road food. So if I’m sitting by the road, so much the better. A po’boy? It’s a sandwich. And this one has beef and lettuce and pickles and some kind of sauce that I am not ashamed to lick right off the plate. I take a swig of iced tea. Sure, that’s Ellen’s Creek right there. But it

Sunday Morning

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The Emeralds are belting out a tune at the Trailside’s gospel brunch. They are finding things in this song even the writer didn’t imagine. The audience is rapt; we shiver a little. A pretty waitress offers eggs, the cook steps out of the kitchen for a minute to savour the music.

Whatever you seek on Sunday morning, be it respite, be it redemption, you’ll find it here. I

Working in Concerts
Profile: Andrea Ellis

by Jane Ledwell

When Andrea Ellis was a child, she didn’t tell her parents she wanted to be a firefighter or an astronaut. She said, “I want to work in concerts.”

She laughs, “I guess as a child I was always keen on music, and I was interested in concerts… The whole experience intrigued me, but I’m not sure what I imagined was entailed!” Whatever it entailed, the accomplished and foc

Yummy Naan Bakery does wonders with saffron

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

The first thing you notice when you enter the Yummy Naan Bakery is the bright yellow. It’s everywhere, as befits a bakery that knows a thing or two about saffron. You’ll be offered a cup of saffron juice, a bright yellow drink that is sweet and tastes exactly like a morning in June.

If you’re there on a Monday, Wednesday or F

A Tale of Two Lobsters

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Aside from traditional lobster suppers there have been few restaurants over the years that have had menus focused exclusively on lobster. A good many restaurants have one lobster dish on the menu. Seafood restaurants often have two or three. But it’s rare to see either the majority or the entirety of a menu dedicated to the Island’s favourite crustacean. But two suc

Creatures of Habit

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Why does a dog do the things it does? Dog owners and dog experts don’t always agree. When we got a mixed breed puppy we call Star (for a white galactic shape on her black chest) nearly four years ago, we had no children in the house, and we both had some time on our hands so inevitably we did a little reading about dog behaviour and training. There is a certain fascination i

Bonita Hatcher presents satire for Art in the Open

by Katie Smith

If you’ve ever wanted to see Stephen Harper’s head in a jar, this summer you will have the opportunity to. Well, sort of. Halifax artist Bonita Hatcher is creating a satirical, political opera featuring Prime Minister Harper and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, where images of their heads are captured in jars and made to look like they are
