Friday, September 21
On Friday we spent some time in Shelbourne, where a lot of Loyalists came, after "the unfortunate outcome of the American Revolution", according to one guidebook. The town has been used as a movie set, and is also small and lovely. We had a wonderful lunch at the Shelbourne cafe - Tom had a lobster club sandwich, and Anne had lobster stew. This was all followed by homemade brownies and chocolate cake. We walked around town after lunch, and had a tour of the Dory Museum, where dories (see photos), a flat-bottomed, double-ended rowboats were made for fishing off of schooners at sea near Newfoundland. They were beautifully hand-crafted. Finding a place for the night was another exercise in frustration. The first two campgrounds we had thought would be good looked horrible, so we ended up at a Provincial Park in the woods again.
