This summer, I really made it my mission to live by the Rules of Summer.
Naturally, these rules included a lot of road trips.
So it’s no shocker that I ended up on Prince Edward Island for my 4th time in four months this past weekend.
The wheels were in motion when my mother retired from her position as a nurse after 40 years at our local hospital. Unsure of what the appropriate retirement gift is for the most selfless and compassionate woman I know – a night on the island and a lobster feast seemed about right. Eventually, this morphed into ‘well let’s stay for two nights’ and then ‘let’s stay for three nights.’
Soon it was our annual mother-daughter trip and what a trip it was.
From epic coastal views on a drive to the North Cape, amazing seafood dishes and drinks, morning and sunset walks on the beach, and another magical afternoon at Avonlea Village – this three day weekend was absolute perfection.
While I could never begin to share even a proper amount of my favorite pictures from this weekend – here are a dozen or so of my favorite memories from this weekend.
a little shopping at village pottery in new london (elisha cuthbert was also there this week!)
This summer was most definitely a mad love affair with this beautiful island – so much that I’m now planning a fifth (and last for 2014) visit over in September to see the musical Anne & Gilbert at the Guild the weekend before I leave for Paris.
Because five times in five months just has such a classy ring to it.
Until then – wishing you all an amazing week ahead. See you back here on Friday for the C List.
