Today I decided to explore Charlottetown and get some supplies for going further north.

Mainly, I needed some warm clothes since I didn’t have a stocking cap or warm jacket and I was headed due north to Newfoundland. After finding a thrift shop, I picked a stocking cap and nice fleece jacket for a grand total of $5.50 -- I scored on this.

Lately I had been thinking that this trip is a great opportunity to pick up some new skills, so I decided to make some additional stops.

The first was a guitar store. I picked up a beginners book on classic guitar. Since I have a classic guitar in the car and have always played it like a rock and roll guy, I figured this would be a good opportunity to learn how to play it as it was designed to be played. The next stop was a book store.

This ocean going environment has inspired me to learn more about sailing. After arriving at the book store I went straight to the boating section and thumbed through until I found a knot tying book. I figured this would be interesting and somewhat interactive.

Later that afternoon I stopped a Home Hardware and picked up some more propane for cooking and a 5 foot section of nylon rope to practice knots.
