Good Morning from Prince Edward Island, 

Tea time. Small cup, on the run today. 

A week ago today we were battening down the hatches in preparation of Hurricane Doiron. 

It arrived with force and did a lot of damage in parts of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Shediac, New Brunswick. 

We were without power until Monday evening at home and the shop. Yet, after throwing out a lot of food, our wonderful staff worked liked crazy to prepare for the cruise ship tours coming to see us for lunch on Tuesday. We broke records for the number of people served in 3 and half hours for our little place. Over 600. The staff were great under the stress of it and the customers were fantastic as well.

Below are some photos from our Gardens of Hope. Not too serious in the scope of things. 

It was sad to see these trees down. The cleanup work has begun. 

Our fence caught two of our four chairs, we found the other two upstream and have since brought to the rightful place. 

Looks bad, but really not. We are very fortunate to have not sustained much damage compared to others and certainly compared to those living in the Bahamas. 

We want to say thank you for all who reached out with concern. All is well and your thoughtfulness is appreciated. 

For the next two Saturdays, Shirley and I with three other couples are doing a river cruise starting in Budapest. I hope to blog about the trip a bit, but it will depend on WIFI and the timing of everything else that may be going on. 

In the meantime, take care and have a great week ahead. 

Love from Prince Edward Island, 

Bruce

ps. 

A man spies a letter lying on his doormat.
It says on the envelope "DO NOT BEND"
He spends the next 2 hours trying to figure out how to pick it up.
