We stayed in an outstanding B&B in South Rustico, Prince Edward Island, in April ’12. The Barachois Inn (Prince Edward Island, Canada; 800/963-2194) was a splurge, at about $240 per night, but a memorable one.

We stayed in a building built near, and in the same style of, the original inn. There was a large, comfortable living area and a bed area with a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom had both a shower and a Jacuzzi. There was also a deck.

The owners were friendly and helpful and served an unusually good breakfast. We were there before, in the fall, which is a better season, as many more seafood establishments were open then than in the spring.

• In Saint John, New Brunswick, we discovered a new, enormous, amazing bookstore, the Indigo Book Store (East Point Centre, 41 Fashion Dr., Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada). It was brightly lit, with a lot of natural light, and had a large selection of books. In addition, there was a section just on magazines, the largest we’ve ever seen.
