F had to do half the laundry in the washing machine in the men’s washroom and A the other half in the ladies! Very efficient, cheap machines, less arduous than usual, once we had enough “loonies” C$1 coins, having collected plenty of “toonies” - you’ve guessed it! C$2 coins.
Next job - provisioning. Had very little in cupboards and fridge as not sure of customs regulations. Had to declare most foodstuffs, but as they all originated in US no concern. Donated all excess beers to R and W before leaving Camden, as had full alcohol allowance in 4 bottles of wine.
The 20 min walk to the supermarket and liquor store took us past many of the heritage homes in Yarmouth. Over 200 sea captain’s or ship owner’s home homes here.
10 Parade St, constructed in 1862 (Georgian style) for Capt.John Lovitt, tower added 1891. Rope- like carved mouldings and port holes in frieze band. Became home for children. Nr 12 to the right, built 1874 ( Greek Revival style) built for John’s widow so she could be close to her children
Impressed by the openness of the roads. No front gardens fenced or walled in. Only occasional hedges between properties.
Interesting visit to the liquor store, also now the cannabis store which recently became legal in Canada. Had to have a look.
Cab back to marina with 8 large bags- need a rucksack merely to carry all the bags for life!
Last of a glorious spell of weather - raining heavily and blowing a hooley now!
