We attended a wedding in PEI, so decided to make a summer trip of it, and
include some parts of Nova Scotia as well.


Full size
After some decent training, Natalia convinced Henry that he likes his headphones. Here he is loving
life and watching Cat in the Hat on the plane to Toronto.

The B and B we stayed at in Kensington, PE was exceptional! Not only was the room great, the breakfast
was world class, AND they had a full restaurant too! Here's Natalia enjoying a salad and I'm having a
plate of mussels and a Gahan Red.


Full size
Did I mention the outstanding coconut cream pie? The B and B is HERE . Thanks Glenda!


Full size
In addition to helping her friend Laurie-Anne get ready for her wedding, Natalia also toured with
Henry and I around PEI. Here we are at the Cabot Beach Provincial Park beach.


Full size
Henry immediately jumped into the ocean. He's now been to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.


Full size
'Whaddayou lookin' at?"


Full size
Just like at home, one of his favourite activities was throwing rocks into water.


Full size
It didn't matter that we brought beach toys. Henry found a lot of amusement with this lady bug.


Full size
Henry and his ladybug. Note the shiner from outrunning his legs on a concrete sidewalk in
Charlottetown.

Full size
We went to the (terrible tourist trap) Avonlea Village in Cavendish. Henry's favourite part was
riding around in this wheelbarrow.


Full size
Next, we went to the Green Gables House (Natalia insisted) and wandered around the farm that
apparently inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to write the Anne of Green Gables stories.


Full size
Natalia and Henry at the Green Gables house.


Full size
I was quite impressed by the grounds and the perennials. Henry looks to be having fun running (and falling)
up and down the grassy slopes here.


Full size
Our next bit of touring took us to the PEI National Park. This beach was absolutely gorgeous sand and went
for miles and miles. Again, Henry enjoyed throwing rocks into the ocean.


Full size
I took Natalia to the New Glasgow Lobster Supper (thanks for the tip Jake!). This was Natalia's first
time eating lobster, but the appies of mussels were also great!


Full size
Natalia's first whole lobster. Thankfully Henry slept through this meal so we were able to enjoy it
peacefully.


Full size
Henry really likes wheels and sitting on things. This lawnmower on Laurie-Anne's dad's property was a hit.


Full size
The beautiful Indian River church, where Laurie-Anne and Mike were married.


Full size
Laurie-Anne and her dad coming into the church. She looks like she's holding it together pretty well here.


Full size
A few seconds later, she's all smiles.


Full size
The inside of the church, and the largest wedding party (15) I've ever seen.


Full size
Henry was booted out of the church for bad behaviour so we hung out and he threw rocks.


Full size
The bride and one of her friends.


Full size
Another photo for Laurie-Anne.


Full size
One of Laurie-Anne's colleagues made this cake to celebrate Laurie-Anne's love of M and M's.


Full size
Our family friend Carolyn made this sweater for Henry. Here he is enjoying the lounge of our B and B.


Full size
Natalia and Henry having ice cream at the Cow's Creamery in Charlottetown.


Full size
We took the ferry over to Nova Scotia and drove through the pounding rain to make it to Peggy's Cove.
Henry was ill the morning we went to the lighthouse, but he was a trooper and kept at it.


Full size
Some smart guidance from the good folks at Parks.


Full size
Natalia, Henry, and some big waves.


Full size
Natalia, Henry, and the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.


Full size
At the 'Peggy of the Cove' art gallery, the artist has placed some larger-than-life objects on his
front lawn. This is a big lobster trap.


Full size
This is a fishing boat. We bought a coloring book from the nice (albeit eccentric) man.


Full size
The Sea Level red was an excellent beer. I woudn't normally keep a photo of this, but the look on
Henry's face is pretty funny.


Full size
Natalia and a sleeping Henry in Lunenburg, NS.


Full size
Check out this beautiful wooden sailboat in the harbour.


Full size
Our next stop was to visit our friend Carolyn in South Brookfield, NS. She took us on a tour to
White Point Resort in Liverpool, NS where Henry got to chase rabbits around.

Full size
These are Adirondack chairs, but done up in bunny style.


Full size
Henry, Carolyn, and Natalia playing in the kid's room. We took a swim in the indoor pool here since the
weather wasn't ideal.


Full size
Carolyn and I and her amaryllis flowers. Carolyn and her husband Henry took me in as a young man
and allowed me to stay with them to finish out my grade 10 year in Nova Scotia when my parents moved.
Carolyn's late husband Henry is our little guy's namesake.


Full size
Henry wanted to mop up Carolyn's deck and was working pretty hard at it.


Full size
Carolyn trying to corral Henry for a photo.


Full size
We also managed to get a visit with Natalia's friend Sarah from Edmonton. She comes back in the summer
to NS and we happened to catch at their neat little beach house in Hubbard's Cove.


Full size
When we got to Halifax, we went on a walk to get some air, and wound up at Point Pleasant Park. Someone had
added soap to the fountain, which I thought was funny.


Full size
Henry found a fountain he liked, outside an amazing restaurant that Natalia loved, called the Bicycle Thief.
Thanks to Sarah for the recommendation!


Full size
On the dual recommendations of our friends Earl and Amie, along with Carolyn's son Troy, we spent
a beautiful morning at the Crystal Crescent Beach.


Full size
Troy and his wife Danielle just adopted four children and we got to meet all four, along with their
son Tristan as well. There's an awful lot of love in that home!


Full size
Henry in the Public Gardens in Halifax.


Full size
Stopping to smell the flowers.


Full size
The year 2015 is apparently the year of the soil.


Full size
I saw this sign on the bus in Halifax and thought of my brother.


Full size
Here's Henry enjoying a morning coffee (actually milk) at the Seaport Farmer's Market in Halifax.


Full size
He recently discovered that he can climb into the bottom rack of his stroller.


Full size
I think this photo is hilarious of Henry chilling out and enjoying his coffee.


Full size
There's an excellent playground on the waterfront near the ferry landing. Thanks again to Earl and
Amie for this recommendation. Henry LOVED the little submarines, and it was the first time he used
a big ladder almost-by-himself.


Full size
Henry and a piece of art on the waterfront. These two light standards are called "Got Drunk, Fell Down".
