Day 8 - 265 years is a long time...(and today is my last day)...
I will see you very soon. I'll be sad to leave Windsor...the Little Town of Big Firsts. But this is my last day and my last diary entry.
Mayor Paul showed me this picture of Fort Edward...I asked if he would change the name to Fort Flat Daniel but he said he couldn't. Anyways, he said this is the oldest surviving blockhouse of its kind anywhere in North America...it is 265 years old...that's even way older than you Ms. Carle. For information on Fort Edward, click here. It's real interesting!
Had a wonderful time here, thanks for sending me, and thank-you Windsor. Will be home soon Ms. Carle.

Day 7 - Feelin' Royal
Oyez...Oyez! (I learned that from Lloyd the Town Crier)
I'm still getting the royal treatment here in Windsor. This is Princess Allison and her two attendants; they are really nice.
Mayor Paul took me as his special guest to the Apple Blossom Princess Tea. Don't worry Ms Carle, I didn't drink any tea...I only drank real apple cider made right here in the Annapolis Valley. They grow tons of apples here and the fresh apple cider is delicious. And then I got my picture taken with all the Apple Blossom princesses and Queen Annapolisa. How sweet is that?...about as sweet as real apple cider!
Well, off we go on to another adventure. Talk to you tomorrow. Daniel

Day 6 - They like me so much here in Windsor, there's a flower shop named after me!
Hello Ms. Carle and my friends. Guess what? I like it here so much that I decided to start my own flower shop. LOL - just kidding! But I did find this neat flower shop...and I really liked the name so Mayor Paul took me in for a visit. I was "bearly" in the door when I met two new friends. Give Jennifer a call...her number is right there on the sign...she says she can send flowers all the way across Canada.
Still having loads of fun here in Windsor.

DAY 5 - WHOA...puppets wayyyyyy bigger than me!
Hello again Flat fans,
It was a busy day again here in Windsor....I've been going flat-out! Mayor Paul took me to see the world famous Mermaid Theatre puppets. Ms. Carle, did you know they took these puppets all over the world and all the way to Japan to do a special puppet show for the Emperor? Next time maybe you can get them to stop at our school in Vancouver.
I met Stella, Queen of the Snow today. And believe me, there is still lots of snow here for her to be queen of. She told me all about puppetry here at Mermaid Theatre. She was really nice...but she forgot to warn me about the dinosaurs. Mr. Dino invited me for lunch...big, big mistake! He tried to eat me for his lunch! I'm OK though. The nurses are very nice at the hospital here.
Nighty-night from Windsor.
