The morning started out very early at the beach.
Michelle, Laura, and me
a real live starfish on the beach
Brandon ( Michelle’s son) at the beach. The water was very cold which didn’t seem to bother Brandon (a real Canadian) but all the mosquitoes on the beach go to us.
Laura and I were enchanted with this art work ( “Glass on Glass” Mosaic artwork created in reclaimed windows and rustic frames) while in Halifax so Laura bought a picture with towels on a clothesline.
We read the artwork was produced in PEI, and were thrilled when we walked into this store to find the artist present. I fell in love with this picture, as truly reminiscent of Canada with clothes hanging on the wash-line. I have tried to take picutres of clotheslines while driving, but this will be a great remembrance of our trip.
Maria, Laura, and I at the beach at night. Sooooooooooooo many mosquitoes out that were hungry. Laura and I are itching our bodies from all the bites. I can’t remember the last time I was smothered with so many mosquitoes.
Church lobster suppers are very popular here.
This church has offered this supper for the last 40 years. It was great sitting in the basement of this church for the feast.
It included 5 courses. Seafood chowder, mussels, salad, lobster,PEI potato salad or baked potato , rolls, strawberry shortcake, and a drink. Luckily they had already cracked the shell so it was easy to eat. It was delicious!!!
Our group included some of Laura’s friends from Ontario.
I should have mentioned that the reason we are visiting the Maritime provinces is for a wedding that we will attend this afternoon. Remember Laura lived in Ontario Canada for 6 years to attend university and then to work. Dave a friend from school is getting married to a girl who is from PEI so hence the wedding is here. It has been over 12 years since I attended a Catholic wedding so I am looking forward to this special day. It has been a reunion of sorts for Laura to see old friends again. I am really enjoying hearing all the Canadian accents.
