Starts with "G"
Glooscap statue for the Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia

Kluscap (Glooscap) is an Abenaki word meaning "man from nothing." As explained on the Glooscap Heritage Centre website, Glooscap is the first human, "created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand and remains a figure that appears in many of the Mi'kmaq legends. These legends are stories that are passed down from generation to generation and tell of the Mi'kmaq culture."

The statue has become the focal point of the Glooscap Interpretive Centre at the Truro Power Centre on Highway 102. The centre features a gift shop, visitor information centre, Aboriginal gallery and a hundred-seat theatre.


GREEN at the aquarium. It would be a lie to call these geckos.


It's a great way to spend the winter!


  1. ...created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand, what a 'G'reat legend! Those iguanas are 'G'reat. Looks like John has a serious phone addiction. I hope that you continue to have a wonderful winter vacation.

    1. Tom, he was using his phone as a reader (book from library) as his e-reader was overheating.

  2. The sculpture reminds me of one I know of here.

  3. Definitely, a little too big to be geckos! And, definitely a great way to spend winter months! I sure could use a little sunshine about now! Have a good week, Jackie!

  4. Nice statute! I'm not sure what to call the aquarium critter, but love his green color.

  5. I find origin stories fascinating. This one's cool.

  6. fun - love that Glooscap statue especially, not that I don't like larger reptiles, or lounging on a beach!

  7. maybe those Wannabee Gecko's wouldn't mind ;-0

    Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week at
