First two days were council meetings then two days of talks and one night for poster sessions and another for the banquet so my plate was full. So it goes.
The biggest downer was my fault; I picked a cheap hotel 35 minutes from the meeting. This meant it was a pain getting there and back and it limited what my wife could do. Lesson learned. Lack of bird diversity was a downer too but I found many nice sites I would like to come back too.
On the up side: meeting great folks and seeing some great science by the younger folks. Really impressive group.
Places we visited were Harborville, Grand Pre, a UNESCO Heritage Site, and the town of Digby. Wife went horseback riding on the Evangeline trail.
