A possible good day trip to take with any and all visiting relatives or friends: In pretty, pretty Peggy's Cove, at the Old Red Schoolhouse, you can catch some folky, acoustic goodness all summer long. The Flotsam Concert Series 08 ($20 per ticket, all ages, 7pm start time) includes a "surprise guest clown pre-show," a night of quality tunes and a bonfire to follow. The series begins with Erika Kulnys (July 19), upcoming artists include Gypsophilia (July 26), Jeff Torbert and friends (August 2), Tanya Davis (August 9), Old Man Luedecke (September 11) and Christina Martin (September 13). Last year there was a shuttle bus available, but not this year, unfortunately. But don't let that stop you from enjoying the fun! For tickets, call or visit Beales' Bailiwick in Peggy's Cove at 823-2099, www.beales.ns.ca.
