Photo of the day: Beach jump!

7 July 2014 Ottawa to PEI 2014

I wouldn’t have thought a rocky beach would be preferable to a sandy beach. Luckily, the beach at Greenwich PEI National Park has both gorgeous sand and great big red sandstone rocks for jumping. This is one of my favourite photos of the trip. It says summer and sand and sea and play – all […]

A happy anniversary in Souris, PEI

7 July 2014 Ottawa to PEI 2014

Fifteen years ago on July 3, 1999 Beloved and I were married. It seems fitting that 15 years of marriage is celebrated with the most fun day of our adventure on Prince Edward Island. It also seems fitting that it was our favourite day not by design but happy accident. That’s pretty much how we […]

The boys of Green Gables, Cavendish beach and more lighthouses

3 July 2014 Ottawa to PEI 2014

So this pretty much sums up our vacation so far: Even though it was a longish drive from our rural corner of the Island, we couldn’t really come all the way to PEI without checking out Anne of Green Gables shore, could we? An hour and a half drive up the twisty, winding north coastal […]

Photo of the day: Canada Day in Charlottetown

2 July 2014 Ottawa to PEI 2014

If you’re going to be in PEI for Canada Day, there are few things better I can think of doing than going to see Anne of Green Gables the Musical at the Confederation Centre for the Arts for their first performance of their 50th (!) season. That’s more than 2800 performances and 16 different Annes […]

Postcards from PEI: Lighthouses, artisans and the ocean

1 July 2014 Ottawa to PEI 2014

When I was endlessly googling PEI cottage rentals in the cold dark heart of winter, there was a very short list of things I wanted to get out of our PEI vacation and at the top of that list was morning coffee watching the sun rise over the ocean. Pretty much exactly like this: And […]
