Hi there! Welcome to  Friday’s Favourite Five and the first Friday of summer!

Although I love the changes of every season, summer on Prince Edward Island has to be my favourite time of year.

Here’s a few reasons why . . .

1. The weather! Fresh dewy mornings, warm sunny afternoons and long, lingering evenings set the scene for one long holiday time. 

And (hopefully) just enough rain to keep everything blooming and green!

2. There’s no end to the summer festivities ~ family and home-comings, beach parties and bonfires, live theatre and concerts, small town fairs and parades from June til the end of Sept. Check out our Visitor’s Guide – it will whet your appetite for an Island visit!

 

3. Afternoons in the hammock with a fat book and an icy cold glass of peach iced-tea.

4. Time for long evening walks on quiet shores.

5. Watching the sun set over the water.

Thanks so much for coming by to visit.

Have a wonderful first weekend of summer!

with love,

    i think so many problems in this world would be eased if we all spent more time in hammocks, don't you?

    Visiting your province is on the top of my list of places to go in Canada. Paging through the fat guide book just intensified by desire to do it soon!So far summer has only teased us with a few sunny days here on the West coast – today it is again cold and rainy. Thank you for sharing your sunny scenes with us.

    HI there ladies! Thanks for all your lovely comments!Answer time :)Joanne – I bought that hammock at Canadian Tire – I've had others and I really like this one – it's lasting. I also put hooks in the tree so that I could take it down easily in bad weather. You need to put a quilt or blanket to make it super comfortable though.Jill – I haven't bought it yet- I'm so tempted but I've put it on hold til I read the OTHER books I've bought !! I'm a dangerous girl with an ebook reader 🙂

    More twinsy stuff: we have the same hammock, and a preference for peach tea while reading in it. Lately though I've been brewing fresh chocolate mint from the garden into my "Go to" ice tea. Was the ladies swim club novel good?

I MUST get my husband to agree to trip up there…maybe next summer. this summer is out…..we are on a tight budget due to Gordon College expenses and not wanting our oldest to be too much in debt when she graduates in 3 years. BUT….PEI is still my number 1 "places to visit before I'm 55" list! 🙂
