A few weeks back we were in Portland, Oregon on a Saturday morning. We decided to check out their famed Farmers Market (which everyone in the state references as being absolutely fantastic). There are many Farmers Markets which take place around the city; we visited the one held on the campus of Portland State University. […]

Briarcliffe Inn, Prince Edward Island

DSC_1644

Briarcliffe Inn was one of the most delightful and pleasant surprises on our stay at Prince Edward Island. Although really, it shouldn’t have been that surprising. It’s just that we didn’t really pay a lot of attention to what type of place we were going to stay at during the second half of our stay […]

If you spend much time in Charlottetown, you will doubtless be familiar with this unmistakeable vehicle on the streets and plowing the waters near the Charlottetown Harbor!

We recently returned from a week long 10th Anniversary getaway to Prince Edward Island which was amazing in every way that you can possibly imagine. It was indeed above and beyond anything we could have hoped our vacation experience to be. Now, I am a big fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery. I’ve read everything that she […]

Our Experience in Silverton, Oregon

IMG_0080

We hate to give negative reviews. We really do. But this experience was just something else. We can’t say it was altogether bad but it certainly wasn’t altogether good.
