We Were on Vacation...Again!

This time Marko and I got away for a weekend while Grammie Peric watched the kiddos for us.  We kinda blew all our vacation budget on our trip to Cape Breton so this was more of a staycation.  We stayed on the Island and played tourist.

Our first stop was in Charlottetown.  I got my haircut and we grabbed a couple wraps from Sobeys for lunch and then went to see Spiderman at the Cinema.
 Happily waiting to see the movie--it was just us and one other family.

On our way up west we stopped in to visit our friends the Skys.  We had a lovely time and were invited to stay for the entire weekend but we thought we should honour our camping reservation for at least the first night.  And off we went to Linkletter campground to set up our little site.

 It was a lovely spot-- semi secluded and only neighbours on one side.  There was a threat of rain for Saturday so we decided we'd take the Sky's up on their offer and we packed up our tent and were just heading out of the campground when the rain started to fall.

We spent the day sight seeing.  We traveled to the very western tip of the Island, North Cape.  We walked part of the trail and checked out the gift shop.

 The welcoming inukshuks.

 Wind turbines and rocky red cliffs.


We stopped in Mill River for lunch...Beautiful view--even if it was raining.
 Even better view:
 This was their Burger Love winner called the Beefy Vixen--it was AMAZING!  And it was huge!  We really should have just bought one and shared it--soooo yummy--just look at that bacon!!

After lunch we headed over to Lennox Island.  It was at this point the heavens opened up and the rain came pelting down.

Lennox Island is a Mi'kmaq community.  It was interesting to see the Mi'kmaq signs.
 We popped into the little museum before heading to Miscouche to check out the Acadian Museum:

We stopped for supper in Kensington and enjoyed a lovely visit with our friends Michelle and Brian. And I guess we could have asked Dion Phaneuf for his autograph as he and his wife and friends were also dining in the same restaurant.

We happily came home to the Sky's place and enjoyed their company and a bit of game playing!
 This was Dan and Miriam's first time playing Splendor and Dan won!

It was soon time to hit the hay and this is what greeted us in our room!  What a very special delight!

Sunday morning we enjoyed a lovely worship time with the Sky's and new friends.
Joel--and his masterful photo bombing abilities!

On our way home we visited more friends before stopping for supper at DQ.

The kids were waiting for us in the driveway with big hugs and lots of lovin!  So good to get away but oh so wonderful to come home to those loving arms!
