    Beautiful place! Thanks.

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...

    Beautiful.
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Land of my people. Well, my mom's, anyway. She's headed there on Sunday.

    Jack, Anne of Green Gables is as much of the entirety of PEI as Disneyworld is the entirety of Florida.

    It's sweet country, and it's way too many years since I've been back.

    What are you doing about it?

    Spectacularly appealing. In summer.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    Yeah, Lew, I agree. With most of the land cleared of trees for farming and the prevailing northerlies in winter coming off the frozen Gulf of St. Lawrence, it is not a pleasant spot in the dead of winter. Still pretty, though, if you can squint your way through the horizontal ice pellets:

    I'd take PEI winters over Manitoba's any year. To say nothing of Resolute's...

    Where is this a painting of?

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    ^ I don't know, but I think that I recognize the builder of the dark-hulled boat.

    Just got "home" for my annual visit; my Mom's birthday coincides with what is the absolute best time to be on PEI.
    In lockstep with Michael's efforts, and in celebration of the new picture posting format, this is Charlottetown Harbour half an hour ago.

    Tks Michael. The harbour entrance in this pic, facing SE. My first home, straight from the hospital in 1955, was to the family cottage just outside the entrance to the east. Still a magical place.

    I was born the same year, and for unexplainable reasons I seem to always want to chase down coincidences. Mine is late- November. so we weren't twins born to different mothers in different hospitals and separated at birth. <grin>

    Love those Long lean strip planked lobsterboats. Owned one. Worked on a Northumberland straits boat out of launching place for a couple of falls.

    We went there five years ago. One of our favorite vacations. Seafood galore. My wife still talks about Cows ice cream.

    Great pics. Thanks for the bringing back the memories.

    Lovely images. I like the style of fishing boat you have there, thanks for posting.

    My wife's mother's family is from PEI. Her mother (now almost 90) was one of 10 children and the only one that "went away."

    We will be visiting there in the next few years.
