I believe these last few weeks have been full of wonderful things that were done right in PEI. We had my brother Ralph, wife Sharon and son Ralphie visiting from Ottawa.  Although the Bed and Breakfast was in full swing and many days were full room changes, the Tea Room open Wed to Saturday as well as the Gift Shop we managed to get some time in with each other doing a few of the following things together.

  • Thanks to my brother the last shingle was placed on our roof, another job out of the job jar.
  • We were blessed with a good month in August for tourism.
  • Wednesday’s have proven to be the busiest in the Tea Room.
  • Rain has kept me away from the garden on more than 5 of my days off.
  • We have had great turn out for My Island Experience.
  • My Scrapbook Studio has been a busy place of fun for Sharon and myself.
  • We scrapbooked altered books made in the  shape of houses.
  • I have two new tea cups to add to my collection.
  • The gang went beachcombing at least 4 times.
  • Ate at Rick’s fish and chips twice.
  • I took my brother deep sea fishing.
  • Geocaching was on the list of things done over the past few weeks.
  • Gave away my scone recipe, that’s a big one.
  • Taught my brother how to make cinnamon rolls.
  • Watched two movies; Due Date and 7 Pounds.

These are a few pictures of the past 2 weeks of fun had in PEI.

New Tea Cup to the Collection.

Many of the Tea Cups in the Tea Room have been given as a gift. In order to remember who passed along the tea cup I laser the person’s name on the tea cup, this one is from my brother.

The last shingle placed on the roof.

Went beachcombing.

Despite, what your eyes can see this is the Scrapbooking Studio as well as the Gift Shop and this is the working side of things.

This is the last week of Old Home Week here in PEI and it is said and true that once Old Home week passes the Island rolls up it’s carpet for another year.

Take care my visiting friends, xo cindy

You’re visiting PEI and looking for some great fun why not try deep sea fishing? It is a lot of fun catching mackerel they bite on anything, just a hook and you can bring them in two at a time. It is hard to explain but it is right up there with watching an amazing comedy and the adrenaline you get when there is only 4 feet between you and a black bear.

Small group, lets go fishing.

My Fishing buddy, but I caught the first fish.

Heading out.

Just off shore, see how calm the water is….

We are in this for the duration now, no turning back or swimming back.

I was keeping an eye on my little brother… Truth the camera was backwards in this shot and I didn’t know it or maybe he took this photo, little brothers have been known to do stuff like this.

Two at a time, small mackerel but what fun.

Everyone fishing and I’m taking pictures and I like fishing as much as the next person.

Going to the next spot, onto cod fishing.

I took dad deep sea fishing when he was down for a visit in August 29, 2004, with the bearded skipper, and my brother and I went out on the same boat today. I wonder what he was thinking?

Ya, your right, mom would have loved this.

Well the fishing is done we are heading back to shore.

My favourite shot, the fishing reel.

Promise me something! Have fun, enjoy life, take a vacation and just get away from it all.  We, my brother and I lost our mom in 2006, boy she loved fishing, and you know as much fun as we were having it was hard to enjoy it to the max.  We both know how much she loved fishing and here we were doing something she enjoyed so much and we both were feeling guilty she wasn’t there.  Take care,

xo, cindy
