Happy Belated Thanksgiving/Columbus Day!

on October 10, 2012

Depending on where you are, Happy Belated Thanksgiving in Canada and Happy Belated Columbus Day in the United States. While we Canadians celebrate the bounty of the harvest and other blessings of the past year, the statutory holiday is not observed in the Atlantic provinces. Our American friends celebrate the same holiday with the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492.

So we rolled into Boston and our celebration started with a lunch time picnic

And  in true American holiday spirit, we shopped til we dropped! We hit Costco, Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Pandora (still celebrating Leanne’s birthday), PetSmart (for “the boy”), Michaels, AC Moore, and the list goes on…..gotta love the parity of the Canadian/U.S. dollar. We left Bandit at the doggie hotel and doggie day camp to visit his Boston buds. Then we were off to Boothbay Harbor, Maine to check into the Flagship Inn.

 Boothbay Harbor was established as a fishing village by the British in 1623; a rugged spot on the edge of the sea.  Today the Town is known for its quaint shops, eateries and they are especially proud to be a pet friendly community as evidenced by the welcome package in our hotel room for Bandit.

A work in progress….they were working on this boat as we drove by

And after a full day we are are all bushed….including “the boy”

On to Freeport, Maine in the morning……….
