The final leg of our Maritimes road trip featured three places in Nova Scotia. First up was the rugged natural beauty of the Atlantic coast and crashing waves at Peggy’s Cove. Next was some man-made prettiness in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg (and lovely sea food at the Salt Shaker Deli). Our final day was in urbane but relaxed Halifax. After so many outdoor activities, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic gave our brains a good workout, and then we had a fantastic dinner at the oddly named, but superb, Wooden Monkey. Their special that evening was “Vegan Poutine”, which sounded a bit trashy but was actually quite sophisticated, and very tasty.
Following on from yesterday’s photoblog, here is a short video that shows the reversing rapids in action. The effect is particularly beautiful when watching the video at a higher speed but I have resisted such “television” trickery here so you can enjoy the effect as Nature intended!
After Prince Edward Island we traveled into New Brunswick to explore the Bay of Fundy. This is famous for having the highest tidal range in the world, causing the unique reversing rapids in Saint John. The photographs do not really do justice to this phenomenon where the tide from the Bay is strong enough to reverse the flow of the river, creating whirlpools and tumultuous rapids. I also have some short videos of both high and low tides which I will post in the future.
On a fresh install of OS X Yosemite, the notes.app was unable to see the notes stored on my IMAP server. The account was working properly in Mail, and notes.app worked fine with other accounts.
I recall having this same problem with a previous version of OS X, and that it was related to the “IMAP Path Prefix” advanced setting within the Internet Accounts system preference panel. The prefix is set correctly so I was about to give up on this as being an annoying–but–ignorable bug when the very last post in this forum discussion indicated that a cargo-cultish approach of changing the prefix, opening and closing notes, then reverting the setting had fixed it. I can confirm that this solution also worked for me. I kept Mail.app closed for the duration to prevent it being confused, and observed that simply unsetting the value is insufficient, it must temporarily be set to another value, such as “none”, to work.
