Hello Everyone,

The lighthouse at Victoria-by-the Sea. I love the lupins too.
Fort Amhearst
The little fishing village of French River

Living on a small Island means lots of shots of the sea.
Spinnaker's Landing in Summerside.
Rural P.E.I.
Beautiful sunsets at the beach.
Now doesn't this make you want to come and visit our lovely little Island???
Now,for my news flash-my garden photos have been published in this lovely garden magazine that just came out now. I got my copies in the mail today!

So this is a little more Island Romance!
Sorry for the glare on the picture.
Happy Weekend to you all!

I am joining The Rose Garden of Malevik for Show Off Saturday.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn
