Friday’s Favourites

This past week ~

1. Hurricane Arthur came with wild winds

and impressive waves

WI_stormbut not very much rain. We lost power a couple of times but, thankfully, only for a few hours. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were hit much harder than the Island. Many trees were downed and some areas were without power for several days.

2.  Check this fun video clip out –  Paper Lions hobnobbing with Anne of Green Gables!

Beetle Roadtrip Session – CBC

Honestly, it’s a little surreal to see a shot of my boys’ band with one of my favourite literary characters! 🙂 The show,  The Beetle Roadtrip Sessions, is hosted by Grant Lawrence.

3. Apparently, this Prince Edward Island travel guide has been seen in airports as far away as the USA west coast. And look who’s on the cover page – Sarah, in her role as a Mother of Confederation. If you ever see it, drop me a note and let me know!

4. Look what we’re enjoying! Finally!!

5.  I’ll leave you with a few scenes of Island life that I’ve enjoyed this week . . .
