    Just to whet your appetite, here are links to some live webcam views from Nova Scotia:
    * Peggy's Cove lighthouse - http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/south-shore/peggys-cove-lighthouse.html#axzz1CYBA4Wkx
    * Peggy's Cove village - http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/south-shore/peggys-cove-village.html#axzz1CYBA4Wkx
    * a taste of the level of tides in the Bay of Fundy in Hall's Harbour, NS - http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/bay-of-fundy/halls-harbour-1.html#axzz1CYBA4Wkx High tide twice a day - can come close to top of the wharf; low tide twice a day - reduces the water to what appears to be a brook leaving boats high and dry
    * Halifax waterfront area from across the harbour - http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/halifax/waterfront.html#axzz1CYBA4Wkx

    Of course, in July it will all look a bit different :)

    There are other tabs and links on the Nova Scotia webcams site - you can even watch the rebuilding of the Bluenose II currently taking place in a specially constructed shed on the Lunenburg waterfront.

    You're welcome. Note that there are links to webcams on three of the upcoming Winter Games sites (Ski Martock, Ski Wentworth, and the speed skating oval on the Halifax Commons). Also, for (almost) all the cameras there is a 24 hour tab where you can go back and quickly scan through the changes over the 24 hours. Sometimes you're lucky and find a rainbow, big waves at Peggy's Cove, etc.

    With the storm conditions coming, some of the cameras may get covered with snow or lose power.
