becca and i got back from PEI - Prince Edward Island - a week ago! Talk about the most beautiful place in the world!! i decided that everyone needs to get there at least once in their lives. i'll work on writing up an itinerary so that you don't have to do the research, but just enjoy!!

my camera was the quick and easy camera and we took pictures of all our meals - except the meal at Eva's Diner. i think it is self-explanatory as to why this meal was missed. it obviously wasn't memorable!!! but just because it wasn't taken, it has now become very, very memorable. but the people and town were probably even more memorable - and the man that followed us to the grocery store!! wow. summerside was a huge let down, but the musical of Anne and Gilbert was fabulous!! thankfully, Gilbert was amazingly gorgeous and amazingly talented. as was Anne.


too cute

last lunch - in fabulous and favorite north rustico.
don't ask how it's in this order, i'll fix it later :)

first dinner - lobster from the Lobster Wharf in Charlottetown.


we passed "Emily Lane" numerous times throughout the week, so on the last day, i had to get a picture of me and my lane. cute. :)

dinner on some night. we loved Charlottetown and loved Victoria Lane that was a mini street of Europe life. this was a jazz place that had a seafood pasta that becc was excited to try. and i had fish and chips - again - but loved them each time!!

just slightly surprised to find the the seafood pasta included OCTOPUS!!

becca's face the moment she tasted the 8-legged creature . . . she is much braver than i!!

the strawberries we pulled over to buy along the street when we tried to go to a concert on the east side of the island. when we got there, we debated really going because we found out at the door that each ticket was $20. but then, when we decided to go for it, we found out that you had to have reservations because the concert was at a cafe . . . live and learn.

outside our door at the Brackley Country Inn. yes, there was the island's drive-inn theater on the left of the inn and the island's miniature golf course to the right. talk about hours of enjoyment . . .but who cares when the cutest, funnest chairs are in front of our door. i loved reading out there late at night. too bad the mosquitoes loved that i did too. but i don't think the chain smoker man next door loved that i was out there . . . awkward.

the poster from the musical. yep. gilbert was just that dreamy!!

oh yes. can we all say "dreamy" together? why i didn't find him and convert him is beyond me!!
--more to come =)

OH WOW!!! What a FUN trip!! Tisha and I are DYING to go there! We will be planning a trip and taking our girls once they are old enough to really appreciate Anne of Green Gables! BTW- I miss you!! I was planning a trip to Utah but it ended up not working out. :( Instead we are flying directly to Boise for my 10 year class reunion! OH BOY! I will be driving from Boise to Logan on Sunday, Aug. 10th. I gotta call you with more details. I'm pretty sure that I'll be in Provo on Aug 21st before I fly home. I NEED to see you- even if it is just for an hour!! LOVE YOU!!

What a great trip!!!We've been wanting to drive north a little and get to PEI. So glad to know you have been there--I'll pick you're brain a little more on what is worth doing-though just being there might be enough!
