Seeing a line of surfboards stacked against parked cars on Cow Bay Rd., while surfers cling to the roadside in a scramble to pull on their wetsuits, is something most locals are used to. The surfing community has been trespassing through Cow Bay residents' yards for years to ride one of Atlantic Canada's few world class waves---a surf break called “Minutes.” But now surfers and the rest of the Cow Bay community have a beach to call their own. A report from a closed session of city council reveals that the municipality agreed to spend just over $211,000 for a 9.2 acre beachside property with 1,000 feet of ocean frontage. Read the full report here.
