Photos from my weekend in PEI

Here are a few photos from my trip over to PEI for the weekend.

I’m pretty sure I take a photo of these lobster boats every time I’m sitting on the ferry waiting for it to depart (and blow it’s horn making me jump out of my skin).

Thursday afternoon was nice and sunny. I was getting a nice sunburn going, but it completely clouded over about half way across the Northumberland Stait.

Don’t tell anyone, but shortly after this photo was taken, these people snuck back down to their vehicles for beer.

On Saturday, Grandma and I toured and shopped while Uncle Joe was busy woodworking in his garage. We went to Vesey’s in York, then over to Stratford, PEI to the Home Hardware, had lunch at the Tim Horton’s inside Home Hardware (Joe said it is the biggest Home Hardware in Canada!), then went into Charlottetown and hit the Walmart for an electric broom Grandma was shopping for, then over to the grocery store for some fixin’s for our dinner.

Then back to Joe’s place to empty the groceries, then we went to the wharf in Rustico. I drove right out into the water, only the water wasn’t there, the tide was out.

Grandma hates having her photo taken, even when I’m in stealth mode.

Then we went through the national park drive along the shore to Cavendish. Joe said before we went that we will see a fox, because everyone who drives that way sees a fox.

Guess what!?!

We saw a fox.

From a distance it looked like it had something in its mouth so I slowed right down as we passed it. Tails and feet were tangling all out of the side of the fox’s mouth! Her mouth was full of mice, laid horizontally across her tongue!! I wonder if they were for her babies somewhere. (What do you call fox babies anyway?)

Then in Cavendish, we went to a souvenir type of store just past the Anne of Green Gables house. Then we drove through the parking lot of Anne of Green Gables and peeked at the house (didn’t feel like touring and paying this time).

Then we went over to New Glasgow to the Preserves place. Unfortunately this lovely tourist stop has jacked the prices of all their jams and salsas and preserves so high that not only did I not buy a souvenir for you, I didn’t even buy any for myself.

By late in the afternoon we were back and ready for our feast!

BBQ’d chicken, stove top dressing, quinoa, ceasar salad, wine, so stuffed!! Then Grandma cut up the key lime pie Joe made and decided we should eat the entire pie! She gave us each 2 pieces, but I couldn’t finish!

Sunday morning I headed back home in the dreary fog. Here is Joe’s neighbour’s mailbox:

Wait.. what is that?? That’s right, a load of sheep in a pickup truck, and behind it another load of livestock.

Can’t wait to go back!
