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!

What a fun place to see! Both places are mentioned in Anne of Green Gables (Halifax and PEI), so I immediately thought of Anne upon reading the title. I’ve always wanted to visit her “old haunts.” :)
I love “Anne of Green Gables” – it would be so lovely to see the proper setting for the books!
I love this series and visiting all the beautiful places!
I’m so glad you enjoy it! I sure do!
So many places to visit! Just love seeing children enjoying and learning about our world!
We have deer living in our neighborhood. Right now the fawns are being born. Very exciting every year to have the tiny babies in our yard. Nature up close and personal!
Along your lines of Geography Exploration, I have a post this week about my upcoming trip to Cambodia. I am on a mission to end the sex trafficking of young children. I welcome all to learn about the children of Cambodia. :)
I am looking forward to reading about your trip to Cambodia!
Fawns in your yard sounds amazing!
That looks like a lot of fun. We’d love to visit there.
I love mixing vacations with some History. And of course I am a sucker for Anne of Green Gables and would find it so charming to visit Avonlea.
Thank you so much for sharing about Halifax and PEI. Ever since reading Anne of Green Gables years ago I have dreamed of visiting!! So lovely to read more about it :-)
Love it! My kids would love to feed the deer!:)
Doesn’t it look like an amazing place to visit?
I’ve never been to Halifax but it looks like a great time. Would love to visit Avonlea Village!
Doesn’t it look like a great place to visit? I hope we make it up there sometime!
