It's Spring!
Maritime Fiberfest

On the Road Again

Lynne and I headed up to the Maritime Fibre Retreat, organized by Sharon and Richard  Orpin, on Thursday. We stayed at a lovely place in Moncton on the way to Nova Scotia called the Rodd Moncton Hotel. We did a little sightseeing on the trip from there to Nova Scotia.

Joseph Salter

Next to the hotel was this monument to Joseph Salter, first mayor of Moncton.

The Tidal Bore in Moncton is remarkable. It fills 25' in one hour ... the river reverses itself. Wow. To me it looks like lots of chocolate mud in a chocolate river.... yummy.

O Canada
The wind was really whipping the flags out in the Nova Scotia tourism centre.

Five Islands
We took a scenic drive along the Bay of Fundy. This picture is in Five Islands, which is a beautiful spot. 

We got to Atlantica, where the fibre retreat is held, and it is beautiful. This panoramic shot is from the deck of our room:

Atlantica Friday Morning

They expect around 200 knitters, spinners, rug hookers, quilters, and weavers to be here. I can't wait!

It was a pleasure to meet you, and I hope you both had a great time in Nova Scotia - Jacquie, who coveted your wheel.
