Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia

“Southern-Traveller Heads North” chronicles my recent trip to Maine, Nova Scotia, Quebec & Montreal. Today’s post continues with my third adventure in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia. Because of high seas and winds we were not able to dock in Sydney the previous day.)

There’s so much to see on this tiny island of Nova Scotia that I had to make some difficult decisions since our time ashore was limited. Since I am a photographer, the ship’s shore excursions usually frustrate me because they only make one or two stops for photos. For that reason I arranged a tour with Tours by Locals, which I discovered is a worldwide network of independent local guides. (I highly recommend checking them out before your next trip–very reasonable prices also.) Continue reading

Where did “the Shag” dance originate?

I recently received a challenge on my “Southern Tidbits” column regarding the origination of  “the Shag.” The commenter claims the birthplace was not Myrtle Beach, SC, but Carolina Beach, NC. (See comment under “Contact” category).

There is quite a bit of controversy over the birthplace of “the Shag.” I don’t think anyone has come up with solid proof for either NC or SC. However, because we’re friendly states, I’m willing to concede to whomever can show solid proof either way!

Let’s hear from some other readers? Was North Carolina or South Carolina the birthplace of the Shag? (Leave your comment below.)
