So, for work, I was browsing the web looking for some info on this weekend’s Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest. I found the info I needed at a site called Walk And Sea Charlottetown. Looks like it might be a new site for Tourism Charlottetown. I didn’t spend a lot of time on the site, but my initial impression was that it was rather nicely laid out.
My problem with the site is the name: Walk and Sea Charlottetown. Specifically, the use of the word “Sea”. I understand that it’s a play on the word “see” and reflects, I guess, the beautiful harbour element to our city. I get that. But isn’t it going to be confusing when speaking the name to whomever? Aren’t you going to have to explain that “See” is actually spelled “S-E-A”?
It’s like those parents who want their children to have unique and interesting names, like Lyndsy or Chyna or St33ve, and toss in some alternative-spelling letters. Then the poor kid has to go through their life always correcting the spelling of their name. “Actually, that’s k-a-r-Y-n, not E-n.”
Okay, I just typed in http://www.walkandseecharlottetown.com and it brought me to the same site. So, never mind.
