In preparation for my not-quite-annual father/sun road-trip (try saying that quickly five times in a row!) I want to finish posting some of the pictures I’ve taken this summer. We didn’t travel much this year, but then we rarely do over the summer. I enjoy the patio too much to go away when the weather is nice – even moderately nice. Lots of time for that when we have three feet of snow outside. But we did visit a couple of friends with lake-front property. The loons from the last post came from one of those visits. These pictures come from the same visit.
I love the way the sunlight plays on the water. Trees provide a nice contrast.
And if you look up…
Finally, this picture was taken near sunset.
We are heading east to the maritimes for the road trip, so with any luck I should have many more pictures of water in the next two weeks.
Coming to PEI?
Yes, PEI is on the itinerary. Any sights we “absolutely must see”?
Must walk: the beach at Basin Head, a beach in the National park, around downtown and waterfront Charlottetown (not just the commercial streets) and the village of Victoria. Pick up a copy of “The Buzz” when you arrive and find info on every music, theatre, comedy, dance and literary event. There is a Shellfish festival on in September and a Festival of Small Halls. Drive along the coastline from Cavendish to Malpeque and from East Point to Souris, from Borden to Canoe Cove and through the rolling landscspe of western Queens County. In Charlottetown eat at Local 343, Cedar’s Eatery, Sugar Skull Cantina, anywhere on Victoria Row (aka Richmond Street) or at My Plum, My Duck. Coffee at Beanz, Receiver or Kettle Black. Out of town eat in Murray Harbour at #5 Cafe, in Fortune at The Inn at Bay Fortune ( if you can afford it!) in North Rustico at The Pearl ot the Blue Mussel Cafe, , in Brackley at The Dunes, or in New Glasgow at The Mill or The PEI Preserve Company.
