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.
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.
We got to Atlantica, where the fibre retreat is held, and it is beautiful. This panoramic shot is from the deck of our room:
They expect around 200 knitters, spinners, rug hookers, quilters, and weavers to be here. I can't wait!
