Children's Wish 2016 Fundraising!
October 29, 2016
In August, we hosted our 2nd Annual Family Day - popcorn, face painting, bouncery castles and more, with all proceeds going to the Children's Wish Foundation.
Following that, we held our annual Kid's Art Contest. This year's theme was "From The Sea" and it was awesome. Each entry fee was put towards our ever growing Children's Wish Foundation fund.
Finally in September, we hosted a Paint Night! Being first time hosts of Paint Night, with 100 seats to fill, we weren't sure what it would be like. We were blown away by how fabulous it was.
We want to thank every single person who helped us reach this incredible amount in 2016.
Digby Rail Trail
October 17, 2016
Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa is rich in railway history. Having been purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1917, we were a travellers luxury destination. (We still are!) So naturally, when we discovered the Digby Rail Trail, we had to share.
In our off season, we see locals and tourists alike, travelling through our grounds on bikes, skiis, snowshoes and two feet. We encourage visitors to use our grounds for any enjoyable, active lifestyle!
The Digby Rail Trail begions about five minutes from Digby Pines on Queen St. in the town of Digby, Nova Scotia.
Turn right off of Queen St. and you are automatically on the railroad tracks! The trail is great for a walk, a jog or a bike ride. Depending on how far you would like to go, you can walk 11km to Smith's Cove!
Wither you are hiking, biking or out for a Sunday stroll, remember to stop and take in the breathtaking views. There are incredible views of Digby, the Bay of Fund and Digby Neck.
