Last Post til PEI!!

 Hello everyone! I wanted to connect with you good people before we head off into the sunset (except we're heading east so technically it would be the sunrise!)
The last 10 days have been a bit of a blur. It all started with the inimitable Sarah McLachlin concert.
Then I spent another stressful week at work - nothing has changed there...I still have two educational assistants with grievances filed against the school board :(
 Last weekend we went and said au revoir to the trailer :( Though I have to say that selling it to friends was a great solution. These are Michael's feet... I know, I know you thought it was the Eye of Rom, but no...not quite so magical!
 We decided to mark the event of our last weekend at the trailer with sparklers - we thought we should celebrate all of the memorable times we spent there - family reunions, girls' weekend etc
 Here's me putting the last log onto the fire. We burned everything we had...including the fire stick! 
 The last sunrise was spectacular, in true Bayfield fashion. It did my heart good to capture it on film. 
 Last night we gathered with friends at the Wortley Roadhouse and toasted each other with beer and chicken wings - yum yum! Then we carried on to a friend's house where we continued to share good cheer and favorite dance songs - yes, we boogied the night away.  I'll miss you guys!

Tonight (any moment now) we are heading out to Jack's, where my daughter is working later (much later) to have yet more chicken wings! It will be Michael and I and our two kids, Kazi and Dane - a little family time before we get on the road. Yes - we are heading out tonight instead of tomorrow - the car is packed so what are we waiting for???

If you're looking for me, try the following locations:
 one of many lighthouses...
 traipsing through the fields...
 wading in the water with the herons...
 on the Confederation Bridge....
 watching the sunrise through the mist...
 walking up...or laneway...
 sitting on my front porch watching the storm clouds...
 checking out the neighboring farmer's crops....
 visiting any of a number of beaches...
 checking out the local natural wonders....
ok, so I've been told that it's time to pack up the laptop and put it in the car, so au revoir my friends, when next I talk to you I'll be in PEI!
You'll just have to enjoy the rest of the photos on your own!

  13. Have a safe journey and enjoy every moment at Crofter's Lane!

  14. OMG, the hydrangea. Sorry, I could not get past that. All right, can I steal some of your photos for my computer background? Like the view down the lane, and the view of the stormclouds over the porch? Those are my favorites.

  15. I can't believe how beautiful the pictures are!
