Nova Scotia is "wasp waisted" with Halifax and the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and Windsor a short jaunt on Hwy. 101 to the other side on Bay of Fundy.
It's an easy drive on good roads. As you can see, the colourful time is past as most of the trees were bare.
On Tuesday I drove just past Windsor to the Farm at Noggin's Corner. It was just over a one hour drive from Eastern Passage.
This year's theme is "Ancient Rome". Not only do you get to navigate a maze, but you need to find specific activity stations with, rubbings, or riddles, or stamps to show that you been every where you needed to be.
I went on Tuesday and shared the maze with several bus loads of excited school children who were navigating the maze at a dead run, because they only had a limited find everything that needed to be found.
Throughout the maze there was plastic tape to help keep you on the path. Where I entered the maze the tape was blue, but later I noticed that it had changed to white. It was only when I looked at the map (above) again that I realized the tape colour hinted at where I was in the maze. Wish I'd realized that at the time.
I thought this station was a clever way to keep small children, like me, busy. There were five different places where I could dip a different finger in a different colour of chalk.
My fingers were, purple, blue, yellow, red, and green. Next I had to find that exact colour order on the chart.
There it is. See #12 is purple, blue, yellow, red, and green.
I then was instructed to look on the other side of the board and find #12 and it said "You have the rare ability to recognize ability in others". Okaaaay. If you say so.
There were lots of other things to do.
and stamp impressions to be collected.
There were even a couple of elevated stands so you could look out over the maze.
I was having a great time wandering rather aimlessly about. Initially I tried to relate where I was in the maze to the map, but after a while I sort of lost track.
I wasn't concerned until I realized a needed to pee.
