Thanks for sharing our journey with us!
PS: I thought of chaining myself in our cabin since I really wasn't ready to leave... Jim thought it wasn't a good idea! Foiled again!!!

And as were were getting ready to leave port a piper played... and I thought of my mom and knew that she was with us on our travels.
What a memorable day this has been in Saint John, New Brunswick...Life is good!
We went to the "Old City Market" that is similar to a "farmers market". The place was HUGE, taking up a full city block in length. The structure was constructed in 1876 and its interior is modeled after the inverted hull of a ship. The market has a wide variety of local seafood, meat and produce as well as an array of different crafts. Truly an amazing "market"!
Rosa took me to her "local" quilt shop... really cute but I was astonished the price of a yard (meter) of fabric! WOW...!
Then she took us to her home for "dinner"... the noon meal. This was amazing ... she had prepared LOBSTER for us. Can you imagine?!! It was a feast!!
We had such a good time ... what a truly wonderful experience to meet one of my quilting buddettes "in person". Rosa felt like a "sister" to me, I felt a such a bond between us. I truly hope one day we can "see" each other again and give each other lots of hugs. For now though, I will always have my memories and Wednesday's will always be known as "Rosa Wednesday". Thank you Rosa for a day that I will always hold close to my heart... I love you Rosa.

We walked around the town, visiting St. Patrick's Church Museum, local pharmacies and boutiques. The day was cold and very windy but the fall colors were amazing!
St. Patrick's Church...
Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest providence. The island is famous for its beautiful rolling farmland, scattered forests and dramatic coastline. There are numerous beaches, wetlands and sand dunes along the coast. As legend goes, the coves were popular with rum-runners during the days of prohibition in the United States.
Along the coast...
We ended our time on PEI with a lobster roll...delicious! We had a perfect day! Time to head back to the Constellation for departure to Sydney, Nova Scotia.
See you there...
Check this one off my "Bucket List". I have wanted to go to Prince Edward Island ever since I read the "Anne of Green gables" books. And here it is...
The treadle sewing machine... I was fascinated with the thread/bobbin holder on the machine.
The thread/bobbin holder...
The well ....
The San Marco Restaurant, the main dining room on board, was the setting for "Brunch at Sea". This was amazing... all the food, ice and "food" sculptures were unbelievable! I had no idea you could do so much with food!
At the Sushi Bar...
The Seafood Table...
Bird Ice Sculptures...
