Friday dawned a gloriously sunny and calm day,
perfect weather for a day trip to Albert Bridge, Nova Scotia.
A quaint little community straddling the Mira River
in the northeastern corner of Cape Breton,
Albert Bridge boasted an overwhelming population
of 159 in 2001.
After a leisurely, scenic, 2 hour ride,
my quilting friend and I
arrived at this quaint little church
to find the doors opened and welcoming us inside.
Built in 1857, the Union Presbyterian Church and Memorial Hall
is the oldest Presbyterian church in all of Cape Breton.
I was especially smitten with the
driftwood adornment in each window!
I was told that they embellish these
during special seasons and events.
Inside, indeed!! The church was filled with beautiful quilts
tenderly stitched at every skill level.
Although it was just a small church,
the display was overwhelming!
This was my personal favorite!
All of the ladies did an amazing job
and we had the most delightful time!
