Spring into Family Fun

Posted by Social Media Team, for Atlantica Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre on 2015-04-15

 bonfireSpring has finally sprung here on the south shore, and we’re excited about family activities and outings coming up, in our area! Whether you live near us or are planning a little getaway, here are some of our top picks for spring family fun in our neck of the woods.

Shop for local hand crafts, flowers, jewelry, produce, prepared foods and more during a trip to the Hubbards Barn, Community Park and Farmers’ Market. Plan a picnic and take a stroll through the six acres of peaceful woodlands and fields! Open May to October.

Don’t want to stop shopping? Keep it going with a yard sale tour through the roads of the south shore. Stay on the old highway (the Lighthouse Route) from Hubbards all the way to Lunenburg, we’re crazy about flea markets, antiques and thrifting down here. You can even stop at a beach or two!

During the Lunenburg Waterfront Walk you’ll learn fascinating facts about this historic town at the nine different informational stops. Follow it up by a trip to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic (opens mid-May) to see their amazing aquarium, and wharf-side vessels!

Meet Chef Konrad Haumering

chef 1

We’d love to introduce our new…ish executive chef, Konrad Haumering. He’s been with us since June, and it’s been a busy summer! We’re just getting around to proper introductions. Here’s an adapted biography of chef Haumering…

Chef Konrad Haumering was born in Horstmar, Germany and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1999. He then spent two years working as executive sous chef at the Intercontinental Hotel in New York, but returned to Canada in 2001. 

Chef apprenticed as a Red Seal chef in Muenster, Germany beginning in 1985 and continued to train and advance in his culinary career at a number of prestigious hotels throughout Germany and Switzerland. Following a stint as sous chef for a cruise line, Haumering returned to his hometown as executive chef of his family-owned restaurant.  

Since settling in Lunenburg, Haumering has worked as an executive chef in for some of Lunenburg’s finest dining restaurants and popular tourist establishments, including the Rum Runner Restaurant, the Mariner King Inn, and the Lunenburg Arms Hotel.

Chef’s philosophy on cooking is quite simple: “Don’t mess with the natural flavours”.  His favourite foods to work with are fish and seafood, which probably explains why he chose to settle in beautiful Nova Scotia. His motivation is that “every day is a new challenge or a new creativity opportunity”.  And most importantly, he is passionate about providing a great guest experience and having everyone leave with a smile.  

We are both pleased and proud to welcome executive chef Konrad Haumering to the Atlantica Oak Island Resort and Conference Centre!

The Creepiest Activities to do this October

Posted by Social Media Team, for Atlantica Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre on 2014-10-10

Once you start poking around into the past, learning about our history, it turns out Nova Scotia can be a pretty creepy place. Whether you’re learning about haunted buildings in Lunenburg, taking the ghost tour of the Halifax Citadel or straight up being chased by “zombies” through a corn maze, there’s no shortage of ways to get creeped out this October. Here’s a list of some of our top recommended ways to get spooked in Nova Scotia.

Halifax and Lunenburg Ghost Walking Tours

Seeing the historic Academy lit up after dark as it perches ominously atop the steep hill in Lunenburg is enough to creep anyone out. Turns out you can endeavour on the full walking tour around this seaside village, deep with mystery and tales of “hangings and hauntings, superstitions and sightings,” but only by request after September 30. The Halifax Ghost Walk runs June through October, until the night before Halloween and comes highly recommended, having been in business since 1990. There’s lots of creepy stories, “nooks and crannies” to discover in the old port city.

Halifax Citadel Ghost Tour

Parks Canada organizes and runs a particularly creepy Ghost Tour: Dare to be Scared every Saturday evening, mid-July through October, the last tour being offered on Halloween night. There are additional dates through October and private group bookings are available. As you “descend into the chambers,” of the national historic site, listening to legends of hauntings and old military ghost stories, don’t let your imagination get the better of you!

Riverbreeze Farm

This one is for the hardcore people out there, who don’t mind being chased by actors dressed as zombies, wielding (nonfunctional) chain saws. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Just read up on the back-story, a haunting legend woven by the creators of Riverbreeze Farm, to see what I mean. Now take yourself to the farm in Truro, and enter the corn maze of doom in pitch black, or as they’ve dubbed it “Fear Farm: the Bloodfields,” for a truly heart-pumping experience. Offered every Friday and Saturday night throughout October, it’s worth the drive to Truro if you really like being scared!

 

Want to keep on being creeped out? Don’t miss Season 2 of The Curse of Oak Island, starting November 4, 2014 on HISTORY. Or watch full episodes of Season 1 here.
