Eleanor Nixon was only three years old when she moved to Digby, Nova Scotia with her parents in 1931.
Eleanor lived onsite at the Digby Pines for much of her childhood as her father, William “pop” Hanson helped build the well known golf course.
The Pines is quite special to her and she tells some of the wonderful stories of her youth spent living in cottage 1 in the winter and then moving to a small house near hole #8 in the summer.
Stories of covering the pool windows in lye to prevent the birds form flying into them; getting a horse that her parents knew nothing about until they got a call to pick it up and an accident aboard a British submarine during World War II that found them tending to a young sailor and ended with a dinner aboard the sub as a “thank you”
