Mahone Bay

We spent today in Mahone Bay - the town famous for it's churches.
There are a number of churches right on the bay.  Three of them have tall steeples and those three often end up as paintings and rug hooking patterns.  We had lunch (haddock chowder) across the bay from the churches,  but visibility wasn't great so my photography suffered.
After lunch, we went shopping at Encompassing Designs, a great rug hooking supply store right on the main street of this lovely, old-fashioned town.  We also did some antiqueing during the day - found some great old rug hooks and other essential collectibles.  We got back to Blandford just in time to have fish and chips at a nearby restaurant.  One of my purchases today was a book about the history of Blandford - my bedtime reading for tonight.
