We had the pleasure of chatting with this lovely couple visiting our little Town of Pictou from Tennessee. It was their first trip to Nova Scotia and to Pictou.

They stopped us on Water Street when they seen we were wearing #pictouproud shirts. They asked us a few questions about landmarks in town, history, etc before asking to take our picture as a souvenir! lol

They actually own a little gift shop in their hometown called "The Prickly Pear" and loved checking out our shops. So, we also took a picture of them as a souvenir. Thank you for visiting our little Town, until we meet again.

You just never know who is visiting your neighourhood on any given day.

This lovely pair was spotted walking along the Jitney Trail in Pictou yesterday by local residents. They had walked 11 km along the trail toward the town while taking about 400 photos of various subjects which included a variety of birds that most of us have never heard of!

Later, they met them again looking at the cannon by the deCoste Centre and they never knew the Ship Hector was here, so Beth suggested they check that out.

They were going to have lunch at Breakwater Restaurant and then walk 11 km back to their vehicle!

Welcome to our beautiful Town and thanks for the visit - Come back again!

We would like you to meet George Kouimanis. He is from Australia and was working in Nova Scotia for the last 11 months on a job that just finished up.

George joined the Armed Forces in his earlier years instead of taking a position with an Art Institute in Australia. He stopped by the The Art House in Pictou, Nova Scotia to check out some work by our local Pictou County artist while he and his wife are touring Nova Scotia.

Thank you for visiting our beautiful Town of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Come back anytime!

We met this lovely couple, Jean and Bill, during our Open House/Pictou Proud Video Release.

They drove all the way to Pictou from Salt Spring Island, BC in their white VW van nicknamed "Wooly"! (The horn even makes a Baaa sound...lol) to connect with family roots.

Jean had not been to Pictou since 1958! She came here to find relatives from the "Bowen" side of her family. After contacting The McCulloch House Museum & Genealogy Centre, she found a cousin who lives in Town and was meeting her for coffee for the first time! How amazing!

Welcome back home to Pictou, Nova Scotia!
