An Oscar for Smith's Cove

By Peter MacLellan, Annapolis Digby EDA

Digby, NS –Speaking of children’s entertainment, my home hamlet of Smiths Cove is the setting for a wonderful new children’s book set in that lovely seaside community. Oscar the herring gull is the mischievous hero of a book penned by “Cove” native Roberta Heembrock, who now lives in Calgary. It’s a warm tale of childhood summers on the Basin. And by the way, the human heroine of the story, Grammie Sara – in reality the author’s Aunt Mary Lou - is a friend of mine and one of the most respected and beloved members of our community. From this brief description I bet many of you already know who she is.
