Island Jaunts

Old Church down a country road in Breadalbane,PEI

Some pictures of our drives around the Island....

We headed into the hills one day - PEI is very hilly as opposed to the seacoast drives which can be along cliffs, dunes or very gentle shores. There is such a variety of landscape on this small province. A little bit of heaven for everyone.

I love this house! not far from the church and for sale too!!!

Sherman's Shore on Malpeque Bay outside of Summerside, PEI

Red Sands, Blue Waters and Fluffy Clouds

New Glasgow, PEI

Downtown Charlottetown with a small town feel where to be greeted with a hello on the street is not uncommon.

Our lunch spot - sole with hand cut PEI fries...heavenly and yummy...

Confederation House - where Kate and Will paid a visit earlier this summer.. the birth of Canada 1867

PS I am still tackling the steam and seam applique and not happy with it at all. This is just too tense an activity for me. I think I have sworn off using any adhesives! It is way too friggy! My one and only project using this method. Next week I will be able to hook again. Next vacation I am bringing my frame even if I have to have a roof rack installed on the car. I feel so much more relaxed with hook in hand and a rug on the frame. Rug Hooking here we come....

I haven't been to PEI since I was a little girl. My great aunt had a dairy farm there! I loved it. Thanks for the tour.

Beautiful pics of the water! I like that house that's for sale a lot too! :-) Fish & chips is one of my favorite meals... now that the weather is cooling.... I'm looking forward to bringing out the hook again too! Enjoy your days!
