Every year, we like to take in at least one performance at the Victoria Playhouse at Victoria by the Sea on the south shore of Prince Edward Island.
Last summer and again this year, we saw comedians and thoroughly enjoyed the shows.
We always have lunch in the village and the seafood, fresh and well prepared, has never disappointed. However, the food is a small part of the experience in the little village and there is much to see. This is a fishing community and the boats are tied up at the wharf,
across the harbour from the fish plant.
Some of the restaurants are on the wharf, next to the boats. Fresh seafood indeed!
It was low tide at lunch time and blue herons,
cormorants, and sea gulls
enjoyed the early Sunday afternoon weather which was overcast, though pleasant. A kite surfer shared the waterway with them.
The people of the village take great pride in their homes,
which are well maintained and colourful as are the gardens.
People stroll around the sleepy little village visiting the galleries and shops. We always buy some chocolate made in the local store.
The theatre is the heartbeat of the village in the summer, drawing crowds to the performances, the shops and studios.
The community has small town charm, with its range lighthouse, colourful houses, restaurants, studios, stores and waterfront. It is a peaceful little island community with much to offer.
