Our primary vacation this year was short but sweet. We went to Kingston, slept in a Travelodge overnight and then traveled the rest of the way to Bloomfield, in Prince Edward County. Our B&B in Bloomfield was gorgeous and our room very comfortable. Breakfasts were everyday at 8:30am in this beautiful dining room:
Thankfully the other guests at the B&B and the proprietors were very friendly and we got into some pretty interesting conversations. These morning meals also sparked a new passion in me for fried green tomatoes, which I’ve never had before, and poached peaches. Yum!
Bloomfield is a small but very pretty town with ALOT of artists. Here are some general shots I took of different works (I am sorry, I don’t know the names of the artists, but if you do, please let me know) This blue sculpture was in front of Iris Gallery and the giant horse was outside someone’ home:
We also did some shopping and I took a shot of a mannequin head located inside of a ladies boutique:
Bloomfield also has a great store called “Hand Works”, operated by artist Tammy Love, who sells other peoples arts and crafts. Like these fine birds, created by Jim Mullen:
and these dolls by Bill Finks:
There was so much stuff in that store, I’m honestly not sure how Tammy keeps track of it all! But if you are ever in Bloomfield, you must visit this place for yourself!
The rest of our time spent in Bloomfield was at the beach…:
…climbing over dunes and relaxin’:
..and of course visiting (and sampling! Woot!) the local wines. Here is a pic of the grapes outside of Sandbanks winery:
And here is the inside of the store:
We went to a few wineries, but theirs has the best wine. (In my humble opinion) Very delicious!
So that’s it for now, my next post will feature Picton, Belleville and a short stint to Oshawa and Whitby!
