An Island Autumn Picnic

     This past weekend my husband and I decided to take 
a couple of days and enjoy touring the Island.
So,one day we had a day trip down east and the
next it was the western part of the Island~
Prince Edward Island .

                                                We had beautiful sunny warm weather so
                                                we took along a picnic to enjoy outdoors.
                                                 The antique quilt was a $2 find at the 70 mile
                                                 yard sale.

                                               A thermos of tea,some healthy sandwiches
                                               with a sweet treat was just what we needed,
                                               by a small stream in a park.

                                                        We traveled small back country roads.
                                                      And stopped to enjoy a small lake where
                                                      the trees where taking on their autumn colors.
                                                        The last few days have made quite a difference
                                                      in the landscape along the roads but also here
                                                      in our garden.

                                        We enjoyed beautiful sunsets both nights
                                                  on our drive back home.                        

             I hope you enjoyed coming along for the drive on 
         an early autumn weekend.

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and
Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for Tea in the Garden.

Take care,

So glad you shared your autumn tea and the colors certainly are turning there. Doesn't time go so fast. I can't believe summer is over. Your photos are lovely as always! So glad you shared and linked.

You picked a lovely spot for your picnic and the scenery you enjoyed on your travels is very pretty.

Sounds like you had a lovely trip down east and up west. I love the photos of the sunset; beautiful! That is a nice quilt you found at the Yard Sale.
All our picnics took place on the beach with our family this past summer but I never got any shots. I focused more on the scenery and the kids playing in the sand. Thank you for sharing and joining me for Tea Time. Have a lovely week, Carolyn.

Dear Carolyn, such beautiful photos and a that beautiful quilt would have gone home with me had I seen it on Saturday at the Yard Sale! I wonder if participants put out new merchandise on Sunday? Great find and happy autumn! Sandi

Beautiful fall colours and I love the sunsets. The picnic looks so inviting. Hopefully we'll have a few more days like this in October.

Your island looks beautiful in autumn Carolyn. What a delight it must have been to have a pick nick together by the lake.

What a glorious Autumn picnic on the Island, just beautiful! Thanks for taking us along.
Happy Autumn to you!

Beautiful! I would love to know what was served on your Autumn Island Picnic. Your sandwiches seem to be made of sprouts and tomatoes on rye. Perhaps with Dijon and cheese? There is a frosted (raisin or cranberry?) scone on your plate, with perhaps a wedge of melon and a slice of cucumber?
