Out and about, East

Victoria Park in Truro is lovely place to get a bit of exercise and see some birds and beautiful plants and trees and water...all the things that a park should have.  The stairs to the treetops are daunting, but after a rest halfway up I did enjoy the view.
Just a pretty flowering vine.

One of the pretty views.
 If you are in Truro, definitely stop at The Shillelagh - not a fancy spot, but VERY TASTY!
I love that the paper placemats are made by "The Placemat Guys"
Another wonderful place to dine out east, this time in Prince Edward Island, is The Blue Mussel CafĂ© in North Rustico.  Go on a nice day and sit outside and enjoy a great meal.
Lots of local brews.

We were so lucky to be there when they were involved in the "Best of Sea" competition.  The chowder was incredible, and made with mussels that came out of the ocean about 4 hours before we ate it.  You can't get much fresher than that!
I was struck by how very house-proud everyone in PEI seems to be.  Almost everywhere we went, properties were very well kept.
One must mention Cows Creamery. Very good ice cream, and very attractive logo.
I don't really do life lists, but if I did, one item would have been to see where L.M. Montgomery lived.  I was not a big "Anne" girl, though I of course read the books.  My girl was "Pat of Silver Bush".

A beautiful landscape.  I wonder how much like this it was when she was there.
We stopped at Cavendish Beach, so Iain and I could dip our toes in the Atlantic.  It was a bit chilly to do anything more than that!
