I Forgot to Give This a Title...

Top of the evening everyone...

For those of you who have not been out east, you should go.  We just got back from Prince Edward Island.  If you are familiar with the "Anne of Green Gables" books, they were all written out there.  L. M. Montgomery is buried in Cavendish.  We explored the cemetery.

I am forced to confess that PEI has the absolute best ice cream I have ever had.  I do not do dairy so well, but decided to risk it because of the reputation.  I think that my daughter found meaning in life at Cows ice cream.

I took the boys bicycle riding up and down the eastern shoreline.  There were all sorts of birds, including one comparatively small bird that walked up and down the red dunes.

We had a fair amount of debate as to how to get to PEI.  There is the bridge and the ferry.  We all very much wanted to take the ferry, because, you know, we believe in ferries.  We ended up doing both.

I went in up to my knees in the water up near Cavendish.  I was not going to be that far north and not get my feet wet.

We rented a cottage at Cavendish.  With cottages, we have front porches.  You talk to your neighbours.  I found it interesting that the men all wanted to sell everything and move out to PEI.  It seems so much calmer than life in all of the places from which we hail.

We also went to the potato museum.  PEI grows a lot of potatoes.  They fry quite well.

I am being stepped on, so I think I should help with the groceries.

Good night everyone.
