I’m headed out to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia in a couple weeks to visit some newly formed friends whose daughter attends school here at UMD. Capers are lovely, hospitable, and will take you in as their very own. Since they are planning the most authentic, local, Cape Breton experience for me (lobster fishing, sailing, music & pubs) I would like to bring some gifts from Duluth that really reflect the culture here. Something besides a shirt that says, “Someone in Duluth Loves Me” (though I’m not opposed to Ts.) Keep in mind that things like maple syrup and blueberries are very much a part of their culture given the similar climates. Wild Rice might be a unique option though. Thoughts? What would you bring from Duluth to far away lands?
