The old port and an old back yard. Places have a 'look'.
Such a lovely old town with delightful people.
We were enjoined not to take photos in the Clarke Museum, but can assure you it's a very special place with the energies of staff and volunteers seeming to breathe the spirit of the founder, the history teacher Cecile Clarke, who foresaw a great future for an old bank building.
Up there on the wall she presides. There are excellent displays of European settlement life and breathtaking examples of Native American crafts in a whole wing of the building. Do not miss the place.
There are many fine shops.
Among them Harry's Northcoast Knittery. Even if you don't knit, you may find a fine gift for someone. I did, this is not a paid promotion, I just find people and what they do of great interest and we meet so many interesting people, here these displayed in milieu.
