Island Romance

Hello everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We had two of our grandson's celebrating a birthday on Saturday so we had a family party to enjoy. Also , Earl did not do any damage here as he was just a tropical storm by the time he got here but we did lose power for a few hours and thousands are still without power in nearby Nova Scotia. The humidity is gone from the air now so that is a good thing.

Anyway, last week we took another drive to Rustico again as it is just so beautiful there on a lovely summer evening so I wanted to share some of the beauty with you.

There is a lovely boardwalk along the water with benches to sit and enjoy the view.

Rustico is a charming fishing village about a half hour drive from our home.

Rustico also has a lovely beach.

Now for the romance part, my nephew Nicolaas was home from the other side of the country (Vancouver) with his girlfriend last week. They enjoyed the evening there with us and later that evening Nicolaas proposed to Laura, and of course she said YES! I am happy for them and pleased to have shared in a little bit of their ' island romance'. Now, if we can just talk them into coming here for the wedding!

Maybe, you would like to come too for some island romance???

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Hello sweet lady...

Ohhh good! I was hoping and praying that you would be okay with that storm moving your way! Sorry to hear that you were without electric for a awhile but it could have been much worse! Living in Corpus Christi, Tx. for many years...I have been through a couple of hurricanes! So scary! Anyway...so happy to hear from you, my friend!

I really enjoyed your beautiful photos of Rustico! What a gorgeous place...yes, I would love to visit!!! It certainly is the perfect place for a marriage proposal! Best wishes to the newly engaged couple!

Well dear lady, I did receive your last email! Thanks so much for sharing your photo/camera info with me! I am still undecided as to what to get! Hehe! But there is really no rush! Enjoyed hearing from you!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Thank you so much for sharing more gorgeous images of Rustico, Carolyn. It really is so photogenic – I especially love the late light and reflections of the boats. Congratulations on your nephew's engagement and I'm very glad to hear the storm didn't affect you. Have a beautiful new week! – g

Your pictures are stunning Carolyn! and what a sweet story! A perfect place for a romantic proposal. Congratulations to the happy couple!!

We didn't lose any power at all - just a flicker or two - but we did lose a spruce tree in the back yard.

Carolyn, I would definitely like to return to PEI for a romantic getaway. My husband and I spent a night on the island a few years ago. It wasn't enough time. I want to return to explore this beautiful spot. Your photos are awesome!
Glad to hear that Earl did not damage. There is another storm brewing in the Gulf so we might get some much needed rain. ~ Sarah
