We went to the car show yesterday in Brudenell yesterday. It was very interesting with many, many beautiful cars. As compared to last year’s show, there were a lot more cars because there was no hurricane coming our way. Much better attended! Of course, with all the cars to look at, Dennis made a beeline for the only boat, so I had to take his picture!
After the car show, we went to Souris to the Village Feast. We went with Kim and John Laing who also have a boat in Souris. Kim and I lost a number of euchre games last year to John and Dennis while we were there last year, so we are hoping to get a few more games in this summer.
The Village Feast “is a non-profit children’s charity based in Souris, Prince Edward Island. It supports local and global initiatives whose goals are to improve the lives of children in our world. Some of the beneficiaries are Farmers helping Farmers which builds school cookhouses in Kenya, Africa, on behalf of Village Feast, the Souris Food Bank, Coats for Kids, and Main Street Family Resource Centre’s Young Mothers cooking classes.”
Michael Smith, the famous chef who lives in PEI, does a lot of volunteer work for the Feast and he also initiated eleven honourary islanders on the stage. Those poor people had to dress up in an “Anne” hat, wear a potato bag, peel a potato, drink moonshine and cordial, shuck an oyster, take the rubber bands off of a lobster and apologize to their fellow inductee on the stage. For this, they each paid $100 that went to the Souris food bank. It was good fun watching them!
When we got back to the boat, we were just relaxing when we heard a series of bangs. It was exactly 10 pm and when we looked out, there were fireworks going off on the commercial dock. We assumed the fireworks were done by the Maritime Fire Chiefs as they were having a conference in Summerside.
That’s about all the news for now. The tilers are working on the bathrooms and William is working on the baseboards. Wilfred the plumber will be here tomorrow to install the baseboard heaters.
