A Little Gem

The other day I decided to paint a simple watercolour for my granddaughter’s birthday card….I am NO artist but I can do some simple stuff. My grandkids love my work and that is all that matters!  I haven’t touched my paints for quite a while and I pulled out one of my watercolour pads and a beautiful watercolour painting fell out!  Not mine but one painted by a dear friend.  It was painted by Dave Durnford during our tour in Newfoundland a few years ago. Dave knew how much I love The Rock and he gave me that lovely work of art.  I must have put it in the watercolour pad to keep it safe and then promptly forgot about it.  Those who know me know that Newfoundland is my most favourite place in the whole world….really!  On a dreary winter morning I found this little gem…..Thanks Dave…..

First Winter Walk 2019

In the winter some of the cycling club members get together to walk along the waterfront trail in Belleville. It is a great time for a little exercise as well as a chance to get together with friends.

Charlottetown….A Very Pretty Place

My last two days in PEI were spent in Charlottetown…..stayed at the Great George Hotel in the heart of the historic town. I love it there!  We will stay there for two nights on the PEI cycling tour next August!  

Wonderful boutique hotel

St Dunstan Church

Cafe right on the harbour

Love the food at the Gahan House

Super cafe on Victoria Row near the hotel

Beautiful streetscape

Pretty Little Georgetown in PEI

Went to a charming small inn in Georgetown for breakfast….Georgetown is a pretty little village near Montague.  They are working hard to attract newcomers ….some business entrepreneurs have moved in and in the evenings the place is packed due to the local playhouse that has nightly entertainment!  If you were on my cycling tour in 2001 , you may remember biking to Georgetown…we watched a tug being built. The ship building is now closed and so is the sawmill but the village is doing just fine. We will bike there on my 2018 cycling tour!

Got to go to the Lobster Shack in Souris for lobster ……told they had the best lobster rolls!   We were not disappointed….fabulous spot overlooking the beach! The sun was shining, the water was glistening and the lobster was delicious!  

Great spot in Souris , PEI

Simple menu….fresh seafood

Great lobster

I think this shirt says it all!
