The days are a little cooler, aren't they? The crispness of Fall is just around the corner. We can feel summer winding down, making way for Autumn.

For our family it's been a wonderful summer with lots of change and even some significant new beginnings. But in between packing up our previous house and moving into a new one, we also got to celebrate the beauty of a sister's wedding, enjoy Newfoundland for the first time, and spend time with many loved ones first in Yew York then in Ottawa then in Prince Edward Island. Between the blessed busyness of packing and travelling and vacationing, I also had a busted computer for the past month so I kind of wound up taking an unplanned blogging break. But now, before the summer concludes and a new season begins, I'm itching to get some pictures posted before they fade into the background and out of memory.

So here we go. The summer in pictures. I plan to post quite a few summer posts in the next couple days, get caught up, and be ready for a return to writing articles on here in September. Browsing through all these pictures quickly like this, I'm reminded afresh of what a wonderful summer it's been and I'm filled with thanks for the time we were able to spend with people we love in places we love.

Prince Edward Island ~ Part II

Toward the very end of our time in PEI, Justin flew from Toronto and was able to join us for one beautiful day on the island. In the short time he was there, we were able to pack in trips to North Lake, lots of swimming, clamming, beach walks, and of course at least one meal of fish & chips and one meal of mussels and clams. The concluding picture in this album is the yearly picture we take of the cousins all sitting on the PEI front porch steps.
