Our first few days on the island were cold, cloudy and damp. Finally a day arrived when it was warm enough to take Ben for a walk around the harbour.
Signs of spring were spotted, if not in abundance.
Lobster season opened on the 1st of May. Of course we had to sample this local delicacy.
Verdict - mouth watering delicious.
We had read that the cruise boats are greeted with local folk dancing and music. Sadly it was still too early in the season for this, but I did get to chat with 'Anne with an E' of Green Gables fame, before the passengers disembarked.
A 30 min drive took us to Georgetown, a small waterfront village, with a huge lobster processing facility.
Some of you will know of my love of the Ladybird, but I also collect 'Pigs'. Our visit to Georgetown was a must after we found a leaflet advertising 'The Maroon Pig', Art Gallery and Sweet Shop. Their freshly out of the oven cinnamon scroll bun was divine!
Not long after spotting this sign, we saw fresh horse manure on the road and a few k's later, a horse and buggy. The driver had a wind shield up. Incredibly necessary. We later learnt that there are several Ammish communities on the island.
The sunshine lasted all day!
