I love this time of year. The days are getting longer, the sun is getting warmer and the world is full of hope and newness again. It is time to order seeds for the garden and book time off for the summer.
This is what I am in the middle of doing. The kids and I are planning a couple of excursions this summer. Both to islands. The first one we know well and love, the other we are hopeful that we will fall in love and make some fabulous memories.
St. Joseph's Island, Ontario has many wonderful memories for me from my childhood, I spent most summers there. We have family and friends to visit and the joy and comfort of being 'home'. The 18-20 hour drive is a little daunting after out trip across the country, but it will be nice to be driving in the summer rather then the winter! This adventure will be taking place in July.
In August we are hoping to head to Prince Edward Island with our bikes in tow. The island is said to have some great biking trails that we are anxious to explore. We will soon begin to get ourselves ready physically and I am still trying to come up with a way to make Tommy's trip comfortable. A bike trailer will be good, but we may have to make some modifications. I will keep you posted on how this goes. We are open to any suggestions!
Now I am going to check out those seed catalogues...something that doesn't need much care maybe....
Happy planning!
