Good afternoon everyone! Hubby and I have been showing a friend around PEI and Nova Scotia. There is nothing like acting as a guide to out-of-province company for learning about your home province and neighbouring province.
We’ve checked out Scots Bay, Halls Harbour, Stirling’s in Wolfville, The Valley, part of the South Shore (including Peggy’s Cove and Queensland Beach), some of Halifax, and then took a side trip to PEI.
We’re staying at a relative’s place near Montague. One day we travelled the east coast up through Souris to East Point Lighthouse, stopping at Singing Sands Beach on the way.
The next day we headed up through Mount Stewart to Prince Edward Island National Park. We drove the scenic coastal drive through the Park, and then on to the Anne of Green Gables site.
After a couple of hours, and a lot of walking, at Green Gables we headed into Charlottetown. We enjoyed a wonderful waterfront walk in Victoria Park. Then headed up to Queen Street to enjoy some Cows ice-cream. We checked a used bookstore and a game store on our way home.
A quick call to an Island merchant told us one of the best places to buy fresh oysters. We stopped at the Sobeys in Stratford to pick them up and received a wonderful lesson in oyster shucking and eating! I highly recommend Sobeys’ staff, Jonathan, at the Seafood counter for going above and beyond!
Today has been a quiet day. We walked the Confederation Trail from Brudenell to Montague, stopping at The Lucky Bean Café for their breakfast board and some games. It was a fun time. We headed back to the house via the Trail for lunch.
Tomorrow we head home.
In creative news…the baby hat is almost finished. I neglected to bring my blunt tapestry needle for sewing in the end. I will finish it up at home.
In rug hooking news…We saw some wonderful hooked rugs at Green Gables House.
Sunday evening In The Studio’s Workshop Week 3 starts with the hook-in gathering. Monday I have Susan Feller’s design class. Friday will be the final Panel Discussion. I’m looking forward to a fun and educational time.
If you have been, thanks for reading! Have a great weekend everyone!
