Day 16: Chillin on the Digby Neck
Today was an R&R day with family.
Our first stop was the Annapolis Royal Farmer's Market
Potato Pancake NOM
I liked the birch labels
Your art would be just as bright if it was so cold and dark most of the year...
We walked up to Fort Anne for some pictures.
Pops and I beside the lighthouse.
After walking through Annapolis Royal, we drove across the bay to historic Port Royal dating to 1605. This is a reconstruction completed to the highest standards of authenticity.
Deer hide was used for window panes in rooms where light was important but seeing out not as much. Glass was expensive to have imported.
Wonder what my aim would be like with one of these?
I'm ready to step back into time.
Interesting quirky reenactor guy.
After the tour of the fort and returning home to Sandy Cove I set out on the Woodland Path to pick berries. It winds through the woods over to the Bay of Fundy.
I made it back in time for the garden party that night. Unfortunately I took no photos but once a week, a community member in Sandy Cove hosts the Sunday evening garden party. Everyone brings a dish or drink and mingles about with the neighbors over a small fire and treats. It was a great evening to relax and take my time seeing the local sights.
The GS waits for me to ride home tomorrow though.
