Maple Monday

You know what they say – “When in Canada eat maple stuff.” So I did. Amy chose to take a more discerning path as we explored charming Charlottetown. By the way, in Canada exploring means shopping. At least it does in our Canada-American dictionary.

So, first stop – Tim Horton’s, which wasn’t hard to find since there is one on every corner. My choice – the Maple Glazed. It was the best doughnut I have ever had. Seriously. Amy was quite fond of her cinnamon bun. We’re hopeful Tim will invite us by again tomorrow.

The rest of the day was spent debating over which Anne of Green Gables souvenirs will couldn’t leave the Island without, as well as visiting the popular Cows Ice Cream shop (Moople Walnut & Wowie Cowie). It was udderly delicious.We also had a chance to enjoy the harbour walk around Charlottetown, including spotting a beautiful working lighthouse near our hotel. You can see the lighthouse right next to our hotel below.
Just kidding. That wasn’t really our hotel. Even though we’ve enjoyed our stay – the view of our actual hotel room left a little to be desired.

Finally, after dinner (scallops with a maple-citrus sauce, naturally) we ended the evening with a visit to the Anne of Green Gables Musical. We met some kindred spirits and the performance was wonderful. I’ll admit it, a few tears might have been shed in our section. Those of you familiar with our Anne know what events in the first book might have brought a tear to our eyes.

We hope you have enjoyed our blog posts as much as we have enjoyed our trip! See you soon! Here’s one of our favorite shots from the trip – and look for more pictures on my Flickr site after we return. Amy and I are available for guided tours of the Island at any time.
