We are done with the Oysters - Great Malpeque Oysters


We drove to Charlottetown to see Anne of Green Gables. What a fantastic show. The performers were outstanding, especially the lead Tess Benger, what a voice she has. The sets and choreography were all new this year, extremely well done. The set designer, Doug Paraschuk did the set design for the opening, medal ceremonies and closing for the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver. If you ever are near Charlottetown, PEI, this is a must see. After the musical we walked to St. Dunstan Basilica for mass, what a gorgeous church. The church is located on Great George street, only one of two streets in Canada dedicated at “Historical”. The is the street the delegation from Montreal and Ontario walked up from the harbor to Providence House where the Canadian Confederation was established. We saw a bride and groom leaving and one entering Providence House as we walked to mass. We will revisit charlottetown next week to take pictures and learn it’s history. After mass we waked to Victoria street, a quaint blocked off street with shops and restaurants. We had some more Malpeque Oysters at Fishbones. Alexia a student at the Culinary Institute of Canada who is from the Bahamas prepared all the orders for the Oyster Bar. We did not know that there are 8 varieties of Malpeque oysters, we just asked for Malpeque Oysters and we were asked what kind. So we tried three - Pickle point - they were ok, to strong a taste for us, Raspberry point - very good, but the best were Lucky lime - excellent. We met the General Manager and part owner Brent who told us about Soutport RV Park just across the river from Charlottetown, we will be going there on Monday, will most likely spend a week there exploring Charlottetown and the east side of PEI.
