I'm back from my vacation in PEI and what a wonderful week we all had. The weather was beautiful, ( we had rain one night and into the next morning, and it made for fun times walking on the beach). I started each morning by walking the dogs on the beach, followed by coffee and breakfast. I'd read or chat the morning away, walk the dogs again, have a nap, help with supper, walk on the beach, read, watch spectacular sunsets every evening and sit by the fire each night. I also walked the dogs on the beach before bed each night, with the moon for company. It was so bright that I could see my shadow from the moonlight. I did go and see Anne of Green Gables the Musical, which was great.
I also brought the dogs to visit Jane from http://lifebeginsatretirement.blogspot.ca/... Her cottage/house is beautiful... as she is! We had a lovely visit, she was well entertained by the dogs... My big puppy slept on the porch for most of it ( he was very relaxed) and my borrowed dog explored for a large part, then stole a potato leftover from Jane's yummy Potato/Leek soup. She also napped on the porch after she finished exploring. Crofters Lane was as peaceful as I imagined, and the house feels good when you enter the door. Thanks again Jane! Jane is the first blogger I've met in person... I have a list of who I'd like to meet!
I'm back to reality now, laundry, some housework and yard work, then back to work tomorrow...
My vacation was exactly what I needed, time to sit and think, rest and relax, spend time outdoors and by the water... It wasn't a crazy expensive week, I'm guessing in total for the cottage rentals, gas, food and drinks, and one outing per person, we spent less than 3000. That's for 5 adults, one teenager and two kids.
