Why, hello there!
welcome to FFF, the weekly review of our favourite things,
hosted by Suzanne of Living To Tell the Story.
It’s been an strange week of weather on Prince Edward Island;
unseasonably warm and humid, thunderheads and sudden downpours.
Islanders are accustomed to fresh sea breezes and clear air.
We don’t do well with 100% humidity.
We’re wilting . . .
1. This is the only thing that is pulling me through,
so it’s first on my list of favourites 🙂
And also first stop when we’re heading out for an evening drive!
2. Another stopping place ~ Rails to Trails
These trails pass through woods and fields, villages and towns, and alongside rivers and bays,
and make walking or biking around the island so enjoyable.
This particular trail winds through a marsh.
We were on the lookout for the elusive showy lady slipper ~ no success 😦
But we did discover beautiful blue flag irises.
Marshes have an untamed beauty that I love.
as long as I am well armed against little buzzing creatures 🙂
3. Later that evening, I spied this Canada goose.
We stopped to get a closer look
saw mama and two goslings hiding in the long grass.
I noticed the grass rustling
sure enough, they were heading down to the little marshy pond beside the road.
I waited patiently and was rewarded with a perfect photo op.
4. More favourite summer scenes from our Island drives:
~ a fishing boat heading out to sea ~
~ children jumping off the dock ~
~ thunderhead clouds ~
and, as promised,
Hope you enjoyed your drive around our Island!
Thanks so much for coming by.
