Maritimes: Day 2 - PEI Wanderings
How do you describe an epic day on vacation? I could list all the cool
things we saw and show you tons of photos that would make you jealous of
your office-downtown surroundings. But instead, I'm going to tell you
the story of a wonderful tea room owner, who traveled to PEI, from Japan,
30 years ago because she simply loved the look of the photos she had
seen. Having always dreamed of one day going there, she and her husband
left the land they knew and set up a beautiful house in Clinton, PEI
transforming it into a charming tea-room. There, they serve the most
amazing home-made foods. Every piece was so carefully and lovingly
plated, even to the detail of the carrot slice made into a flower over
some of the best potato salad I've ever had. Her gardens outside the house
were in full bloom, and each table bore a sample of what was outside.
The whole place could have easily been too much, but the food, service
and each decoration in this place was just overwhelmingly charming. It's stories, and places like this, that make vacations as wonderful as they are. Check out http://bluewindstearoom.blogspot.ca/
