An innocent stop for New Year’s Eve fireworks in Auld’s Cove this afternoon turned out to be one of the most bizarre moments of 2011…

We stopped at Pettipas Market and were greeted by the extremely energetic Mr. Pettipas himself who was shooting off fireworks (dangerously close to my car!) for the children that were leaving. He then ushered us inside and proceeded to sell us various fireworks; yelling descriptions and hitting the small kit we eventually bought out of John’s hands repeatedly saying that it was for kids. He then gave me a bag with two apples inside and asked me to sign his guestbook and that John donate money to a charity we weren’t entirely clear on (it was legitimate, though). As we were leaving, he asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and shot off one last round of fireworks haha what a place!

DEFINITELY stop by but be prepared…

He even let John take this close up!
