Today’s Ideal Vacay is Prince Edward Island!
I have little knowledge about the province as I’ve never been, but really, how bad can a place be when they’re known for potatoes? Since that’s about the extent of my knowledge (other than it’s home to the Anne of Green Gables series, and the Dragon’s Den presenter who started a business selling pieces of P.E.I. land as touristy gifts), instead I’ll offer one of my favourite jokes at the end of this post.
As always, if you’ve been to P.E.I. and love it, I want to hear what you saw and did that you really liked! If I were to go there tomorrow, what would you recommend seeing and doing?
And now for my cheeeeezy joke:
There were once three thieves, running away from the police. They were pretty dumb, and desperately needed a place to hide, so they took off down a dark alley. There, they found three potato sacks, so they each climbed into one. Shortly after, the police arrived.
The main cop kicked the first sack.
“Must be a cat,” she said, and continued down the alley.
The cop kicked the second potato sack.
“Ahh, just a dog,” said the cop, so they kept on down the alley.
The cop kicked the third sack, and heard clear as day:
I didn’t go on the beach today. I know! Very sad. However, in my defense, it was pretty cool here today. As in, 10 degrees Celsius, and *very* windy. People here were wearing touques, no word of a lie. We were watching, amused, as a construction worker who was in charge of guiding traffic was trying to arrange his touque under his hardhat. We had a good few minutes waiting to watch the hilarity. It really was quite chilly though, especially considering two days before, I was getting a sunburn.
In the morning, I went for a brunch crêpe at Julio’s, and chatted with him for a bit. You Are Always On My Mind, sung by Elvis was playing, and Julio sang a little as he prepared. So entertaining 🙂 The crêpe was delicious of course……
We went shopping today and I bought a few little things. After, we went to Crabby Bill’s for my second crabs’ legs meal, and it was even better than the first….. actually quite a bit better. The original location is still my fave. On the drive back we saw quite a few of the rich rich people’s houses/mansions with their backyards on the beach facing the water…… it’s rumoured Tom Cruise had a home in that area, so we always joke about going to see if he’s still got his Christmas lights up.
Somehow those seemingly few activities took up our entire day. Tonight we might be off to play some pool, but we’ll see. I have to get working on my applications so we might be tied up doing that instead. Anyway, have a good night folks!
