Oh Canada

My parents spent four years living and working on Vancouver Island not too long ago. It truly was a heavenly place. 

Having grown up in the suburbs around the American South, cool breezes in late August, fresh fruit on the side of the road and the sound of the ocean at my window at night, were all sounds and experiences unfamiliar to me. 

While Sara and I could never 'go home again,' we gained a vacation in waiting. I feel very grateful for those visits and long to see more of what Canada has to offer. How could you not, when you see pictures as beautiful as these? Celine, blogger from bonjour!-celine, recently took a trip to Prince Edward Island and stayed in this old farm house that faces a salt water lake. You should read her account of their first few nights there. If you're a city person longing for a respite from the hustle and bustle, you'll long for a getaway there.
