|Welcome to PEI sign as you leave the airport|

Then we headed to downtown Charlottetown for some lunch. Nice outdoor patio so the girls could sit with us.
As we were back in the car and driving around, I spotted this beautiful cruiser bike. M grabbed the camera and got a photo for me. At first, I thought someone had ridden the bike to the restaurant, but NO - you can win it. Well - I have to go back tomorrow to get my name in the draw or whatever I need to do to win this bike. It is gorgeous!!!!!
|Bike that you can WIN!!!!!!|
We have NOT had great luck at going out for dinner the last couple of nights. On Friday night, we wanted to pick up some cooked lobsters for DH and pizza for me. Pizza place closes at 6 so we hussled over there to get the pizza and would pick up the lobster on the way back. OH OH - the darn lobster place closed at five!!!! No worries - found something at home that we could survive on and I shared my pizza.
Then on Saturday night, we headed to the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company to have dinner in the restaurant. NOPE - the restaurant was closed for a fund raising event so no dinner. We went to Carr's Oyster Bar instead which was great.
Both places had great gift shops and we bought a few things at each shop. Look what we found at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company gift shop - now THAT'S a tea pot. That is probably the size of my friend Ruth's teapot. She alwasy talks about the Nott Teapot which is HUGE!!!!!
|That's a big teapot!!!! A mere $280.00|
|Sunset started like this|
|Went to this|
|And finally like this - it was GORGEOUS|
|M getting a picture of the sunset on her phone|
However when she came downstairs dressed in a light T-shirt and short shorts - I'm thinking - NO WAY. You will freeze to death. So like a good Mom, I lent her my light hoodie and my wind pants and she borrowed DH's fleece lined golf wind breaker. I notice that she still had all those clothes on when she got back (not that she had any place to put them). But at least she was warm. That is one for the parents, but I'm not supposed to say that!!!!

|And she is off!!!!!!!!!!!|
I had the girls with me and we decided that we would just hang out for a couple of hours. I had taken a quilt that needed to have the binding stitched down and a book. I tried to sit outside, but the mosquitoes were bad so we all went back to the car.

|Sparky looks absolutely bored!!!!!|
I ended up reading my book which was really good. I am now down to the LAST book that I brought. But it is a library book (my overdue library book) and so I must take that one home with me. We did go for a short walk as well and then we went back to the parking lot to watch for M's return. She was planning on being out for two hours.
|Look who is coming................|
|Right on target!!!!|
I had two very excited dogs (once they realized that M was coming in from the water) and trying to take pictures and the darn dogs were hampering the guy trying to pull the kayak in. I bet he was thinking "lady can you just back off with those dogs so I can work!!!!"
|The welcoming committe|
|Ah - yes - YOU have to help carry the kayak back to the rack!!!|
|Carrying the kayak!!!!|
|Love this picture!!!!|
This was a GORGEOUS old house that we spotted on the way to the kayak place. I didn't back up because there were people in the yard and dogs barking. Didin't want to cause any trouble so we quickly snapped this and moved on!!!!
|Gorgeous old house|
Now M could not have chosen a better spot for the kayaking. We went to Victoria by the Sea. Ah a place I know well. There is the BEST little chocolate shop there and a small cafe. I have been there TWICE on my bike.
|My car parked out front of Island Chocolates|
And here is my bike parked out front................
|My bike - 2014|
I was also here in 2013, but not sure where the picture is - probably at home! That Neil Miller could sniff out a coffee/bakery shop anywhere!!!!
Great chocolates in the shop, althought they do taste better on a bike and no calories when you are riding!!!!
|Diet Pill anyone?????|
|Super chocolate coins!!!!|
|M and the girls at Island Chocolates|
We did have some yummy hot chocolate and shared a piece of cheesecake!
Remember those quilt blocks from the Arts & Heritage Trail? - well they are everywhere and we found one more here in Victoria by the Sea. We didn't stop, M was wet (some bad paddling???) and we wanted to get some lunch. I know - after that cheese cake - how could we have room for lunch.

At last we get home and M had a nap!!!! Poor thing - not used to all that hard work!!!! She was watching a movie and fell asleep with the head phones on. She looked cold so I threw a quilt on her.
|M having a nap!!!!|
|M hamming it up on her bag pipes out the Preserve Company|
|Boy that kid comes prepared - all this for THREE days???? Gosh - even a glass jar for her pencils. No hard ships for her!!!!|
I keep telling you that Little Sammy is very camera shy. Heck - I don't have to tell you - you can see from the photos. Well look at this photo that M snapped of her in the car. It is asbolutely adorable!!!!! She really is a cutie patootie!!!!!
|Cutie Little Sammy!!!!!!!|
I was snuggling with the dogs on the floor and trying to get them to sleep together. This was the result. Sparky looks squished, Sammy is thinking - oh god - not another picture!!!!!
|Me and the girls!!!!!|
And there you have it - my day with M. I had better get this posted before she bursts a blood vessel!!!! So impatient. Blogging takes time!!!
Oh yes - the weather - perhaps if I write that it is raining and doesn't look like it will clear up - perhaps it will later. A GREAT day to stay inside and sew!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!
