Hello to all my Friday Fave friends!
R and I have been enjoying a long and lovely holiday-at-home on the Island.
I agree with my mom who always said,
“Why would anyone ever leave the Island in the summertime?”
I can’t think of a reason.
So for Friday Fave Five, come and join me for some Island holiday moments.
1. Better grab your beach towel – of course!
We live on an island and are surrounded by the beautiful, clear, warm waters of Northumberland Strait
and the not as warm, but still splendid, Gulf of St Lawrence.
We have so many beach choices.
Like adventure? Let’s go bridge jumping at Basinhead.
or maybe you’d like to snorkle along the red rocky coastline?
Perhaps you’re in the mood for a long quiet walk along a white sandy shoreline.
2. If you’re not in the beach mood,
(is that possible?)
we can go for a drive along an old country lane.
The Klondike Road is a few minutes from our house.
Can’t you just imagine Anne and Matthew driving along in their buggy?
Let’s not forget to come back when the leaves start to turn.
3. Oh look, the boats are in down at the wharf.
Let’s pick up some fresh lobster for supper. A favourite summertime meal!
4. We can’t forget dessert.
A modest claim 🙂 but Reader’s Digest made it, not us.
mmm . . .
5. Afterwards, we can listen to a free concert on the Charlottetown waterfront,
stroll along the boardwalk,
surrounded by the scent of roses.
A perfect evening.

It would take more than the Friday five to share all the lovely moments.
So I’ll save them for another day.
I hope you are finding time to enjoy many summer blessings.
Thanks for joining me for a little of our holiday-at-home.
