Summertime is . . .

1. Blossom beauty


2. Music ~ loving this version of 10,000 Reasons.

and my boys’ tune, “My Friend”.  It’s in the running for CBC’s “Song of the Summer”. It’s easy to vote – just click here.

3. Lighthouse visiting – one of many, the picturesque Covehead Harbour

4. Family time!  Wish Andrew and Hyekoo could be with us but hopefully next summer!


5. For # 5 I’m asking for a vote – which header should I choose? Land, sea and sky? or sunset on the north shore?

    I’m late checking in to vote….but maybe the sunset header is the winner since it’s up now at the top of the blog. That was going to be my vote! Love the sunsets!

    Great song. Hope they win. Love the family picture. How fun to get most of everyone together. What a header to choose? They are both lovely but I think I’ll vote for the clouds, land and sea

    Well I love all your photos but for the vote I say sunset!! How fun to have family time. Oh….my niece has her photography displayed in a coffee shop in Charlottetown called Beanz something……don’t know if u r anywhere near that but…if you are , she is my husband’s brother’s daughter . Her photography is very nice..I think a lot of it is from her time living on PEI in the last yr

    What beautiful blooms!

    We are enjoying some family time this week, too.

    I’d love to visit a lighthouse some day but I don’t think I could handle the stairs.

    I love the sunset picture!

    Voting for the blue water. Still August hot, need cooling scenes!

    You getting much swim time in? During our Bear Lake camp out I saw a group of young women in retro swim caps. So fun!


  16. Hi Kathie. Great Favourite 5’s this week. I enjoyed hearing Paper Lions new song. What a fun video for it!! 10,000 reasons is our 2 1/2 year old grandson’s favourite song. He loves the drums and sits in his carseat with his drumsticks everywhere he goes. 🙂 As for a favourite photo for your header? I like the current one a lot and the sunset one is gorgeous. Have a great weekend. It looks like it will be sunny and hot! Pam
