Today’s Exploring Geography post comes from Gina at East Coast Mommy! Her blog is full of fun projects, like these sweet DIY Father’s Day gifts, fun grass-haired friends, and Super Cute Monkey and Frog Clips!
My name is Gina Bell (aka East Coast Mommy), and I am super excited to be visiting you here at Mama Smiles today. I am a mom of three small boys (which I had in 3 1/2 years), so I like projects/activities that are fun, easy, and inexpensive. Today I am going to share a little bit about what we like to do on the East Coast of Canada. First, let me tell you about a few things we like to do in Halifax, NS. We like to visit Theodore Tugboat — the lead character in one of our favorite books. If you want, Theodore will take you for a tour of the Halifax Harbour.
And, of course, because we are located on the Atlantic ocean, we love to hang out at the beach.
And we like to check out the local wildlife. There are lots of deer in this part of the country. This one is at Shubenacadie Wildlife Park.
From Nova Scotia, you can take a ferry boat to a beautiful Island called Prince Edward Island (PEI).
PEI is the home of the beloved character "Anne of Green Gables". If you have read the books (and even if you haven’t), we highly recommend a visit to Avonlea Village. You can dress up, tour the village, and enjoy some great music.
There are lots of great sites to visit on the Island, and lots of local music to enjoy. We "followed the fiddler" in Victoria by the Sea, and the boys really liked it.
I hope you enjoyed our little "tour" of our part of the world. Stop by and visit any time.
Thank you, Gina, for this tour! I hope to take my kids to Halifax and Prince Edward Island, someday!
