Lots of planning being done

We are off to our favourite Island in less than 80 days.
Our daughter and two granddaughters are joining us this year.  We arrive on a Sunday and they fly in the next day.  Plans and lots of them, are being made.
July 1st we are spending the afternoon in the capital, Charlottetown, where in 1864 talks were held to amalgamate what little there was of Canada at that time.  We are celebrating 150 years!  The talks ~~ not the actually signing of the papers.
Once our afternoon is done, we are going to travel up to Prince Edward Island National Park so the girls can see Dalvay by the Sea.  This is a magnificent building that was in one of the most famous Canadian tv series.......Road to Avonlea.  It was called the White Sands Inn in that series. 
The Royals, William and Kate spent an afternoon here when they visited Canada a few years ago. 
Then we'll stop at Richards to tuck into some fabulous fish and chips or whatever they want to eat that day.
They want to drive over Confederation Bridge, so plans are afoot to do that one day and then drive to the Bay of Fundy to walk on the ocean floor.  We'll put on our old shoes to do that
Other plans are in the works.  I'd like to take them to Thunder Cove, Cavendish, North Cape, East Point.....so many things to see, so little time!


Pssssst.......

Have you cleaned out your sewing machine lately?  I did mine yesterday afternoon when I changed the bobbin.
these were the tools I used.  If you have the tweezers from a serger they work beautifully.
