From Away, no longer
by Ray Powers
Our lot looking towards the Bay of Fundy
My wife and her family are from "the valley", I am from Ontario and in fact still live in the house we moved to when I was eight...everyone else moved away or past away...I have never lived anywhere else( I am now fifty-two), but my wife suggested we retire/relocate to the valley.
I am all for it...we bought her uncle's older house in Victoria beach and plan to sell everything within six years and rebuild the house....to say we are excited would be to say the morning sun coming up over the Annapolis basin is kind of bright.
I was so happy to find your site...goes well with my "favorites" of the Digby Courier and other local papers...before I get there I plan on being from there...please don't let too many exciting things happen until then.
Ray Powers.....I was from away but now I am from here...

Welcome Ray Powers to the Annapolis Valley and to the Victoria Beach area! I think you made a great choice of a place to spend this exciting time of your life in. Victoria Beach is a beautiful little community and you are close to everything else the larger communities in the valley offer. What a fantastic view of the Digby Gut you have!
Now that you have told us about your plans "to sell everything within six years and rebuild the house...." maybe you would like to add comments to this post every once in-awhile to let us know how you are coming along with your move! There are several others who are thinking about doing the same thing as you are and they may be interested to read any hints or suggestions you may find while making your own move.
