A week of "out and about"

There hasn't been any sewing time this week at all (other than to make 75 metres of bias binding for a workshop...but that doesn't count as sewing!) Hubby and I did a bit of tripping around, first to Charlottetown P.E.I. where we enjoyed a lovely, leisurely day. There was a HUGE cruise ship in, and the city was in a festive mood.

We spent our time in the downtown, taking in a quilt exhibit, a great lunch at a pub, a stroll on the waterfront and then some shopping. Travelling via the Confederation Bridge certainly makes this a quicker trip than the old days when we had to wait for a ferry to the Island.

Next day, we were off to Moncton, N.B. to stock up on fall supplies at the bee store. This is a busy time of year for beekeepers as the honey is coming off and the hives need to be readied for over-wintering.

Wednesday Hubby and I travelled to Halifax, where he received a service award from Nova Scotia Premier Rodney MacDonald. That was a lovely ceremony, and a great day. I even got new shoes :) Here's the clock tower in downtown Halifax.

Today we will do some bee work and hopefully have time to catch the NHL season opener from Sweden. Sidney Crosby and Daniel Alfredsson make for good hockey watching.

  1. I envy you the bees. My grandfather kept bees, and my favourite memories are of the barn where he worked - there was a wonderful smell of beeswax everywhere.
