Hi and welcome to
I’m joining Suzanne and all the others over at Living To Tell The Story as we recall our favourite moments of the past week.
This week I’m highlighting one evening – an almost perfect evening – this side of heaven 🙂
oh! I had trouble narrowing down the shots.
But here we go! Why don’t you join me?
We’re heading out kayaking on a beautiful April evening in Prince Edward Island. Don’t forget your lifejacket. Plus your jacket, hat, splash pants and rubber boots just in case you have to wade – the water is cold!
And of course, your kayaking buddy – these times are best shared.
As you can see, we’re bundled! The evening was gorgeous but there was a bit of a chill off the water.
We were trailed by seals – seven of them, all very curious. One even leapt out of the water like a dolphin. I wished I had captured that moment on camera.
In the distance, we could see the first cruise ship of the season leaving the Charlottetown harbour. It hailed from Italy. It was heading our way and we wondered if we should try to paddle up close and maybe dive for coins? or sell some wares? – just like these locals n this shot from an old Life magazine.
But, we decided against it 🙂
At least Rinda captured this great shot.
There’s nothing like sitting back in the kayak, gently rocking in the swells.
The sunset on the water was so magical, it was hard to turn back and head home.
One last lingering moment in the radiant light.
And then paddle to shore.
One problem though ~ we underestimated the tide. And it was out – far!
I can’t drag the boat with my heart problem and Rinda can’t with her neck problem. But no worries. One rather sheepish cell phone call to Rinda’s very good-natured hubby and he was there in a flash to haul the boats up to the car. He always comes to the rescue.
A perfect end to a perfect evening.
Happy, happy sigh! My cup is running over.
Thanks for dropping in again! Hope you enjoyed our little outing.
And I hope your weekend is filled to overflowing with blessings!
