Vacation, Part 1

On the way to Canada’s East Coast, our first stop was in Kingston.  Four years ago the very ancient penetentary was closed, so we toured the Pen.

First, I have to tell you how exhausted we were.  The hotel we booked only housed enough spots for 30 cars, and because we got there early enought (around 1:00), we checked in and parked our car.  Fearing that we wouldn’t have a spot to come back to, we decided to hike, in a fast pace, 30 minutes to the Pen.  The two hour tour lasted close to three hours so we were pooped.  Al was smart and recommended we take a bus back downtown to our hotel when the tour was completed.

Me behind bars.

In the large gym, murals were painted to help with moral of the inmates.  Surprisingly, this mural was not defaced as it brought peace to the inmates.  I think this mural is gorgeous.

One of our stops was in New Minas, Nova Scotia, close to where I used to live.  We booked our rooms through airbnb and found a room for only $52.  We had no problems staying at our airbnb rooms.  The hosts were very friendly and opened up their homes to us.  Here, Al is standing in front of a restaurant we really enjoyed.

Not far from Halls Harbour, NS, were painted houses.  I felt like a kid in a land of enchantment.  The houses were so much fun.

We enjoyed having lobster at Fisherman’s Wharf, on Prince Edward Island.  I used to eat there when I lived on the Island.  It was as good as I remembered.

Here we were at Brackley Beach National Park, on Prince Edward Island.  I ate the best fish I ever had just off the docks.

More pictures to follow tomorrow.

Oh wow I am glad that you were able to get a bus back to the hotel, you do look tired in the jail cell 🙂 That mural is amazing.
That house sure is a unique shape, how fun… glad the restaurant was just how you remembered!
