Day Two June 4th PE Island here we come!!!
One of the first things I noticed as we were coming into Charlottetown and when we were driving down to the restaurant were the yellow houses. When I saw them something was triggered in my head that told me I was definitely in Prince Edward Island. It was a pale yellow colour, like pale yellow butter, and I associate that colour with the island. It's weird but I don't associate the island with red (the sand) or green (everything else), but this pale buttery yellow is the colour I expected to see the houses and I saw a lot of yellow houses. Stacey laughed when I first told her but then as we toured the island we noticed that there might be something to my association.
The first thing we did in Charlottetown was eat at Pat and Willie's, it's a little Mexican restaurant in downtown Charlottetown. It was Stacey's sister's birthday so we met her there and Stacey's Mother came as well. I had a fabulous meal, the quesadillawith fries. After we finished supper I was exhausted so Stacey drove us out to her parent's cabin.
The cabin is just that a little cabin on the edge of her parent's property. It had two bedrooms, a bath and a kitchen and sitting area. There was no television, which at first I was a little worried about, but it turned out I didn't miss television at all while I was there. We had so much to do that television would have just be an unnecessary distraction in the cabin. Little Man and I quickly settled in, it took Little Man a bit to settle down for the night but finally we both settled down and fell asleep. It was 10 o'clock in Charlottetown, which means it was 7 o'clock back at home lol!!!
