The Last Day

Day 5 of our adventure

Our last full day in PEI, Charlottetown. We had decided that this was going to be the day of doing nothing. After our wild adventure yesterday in search of Anne of Green Gables and our appointment with Nora Cummins (ThetaHealing Practitioner), we really needed to rest.

We slept in and relaxed. We were both very quite and exhausted, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We joined up for breakfast and the rain and wind were coming down pretty good, so we didn’t feel guilty for staying in.

At one point I heard the rain stop, I have been wanting to go to this one little shop downtown so I asked if Krysta wanted to go. We both dressed warmly and meandered down a few blocks. Nora from the day before had suggested we both take sea salt baths. At the store we made it to, they had some. We both bought a bag and slowly made our way back to the Inn. We stopped here and there and had lunch and started back to relax back at the Inn.

Krysta wanted to nap so I brought my laptop and such down to the dining area and set up shop so she can rest in peace. As I sat downstairs, I noticed people coming and going and we would strike up conversations they would leave and I would go back to writing my blogs. At one point this gentleman walked in and was trying to find out the wi-fi code. We started talking and he and his wife took their young children out of school for a year so they could travel. They were from Australia and got here 2 days later. They were exhausted, he told me about some of theirs travels as to where they had been. One place he said was Bali.

Bali is on my list, between now and next April I will be going there. So when he said that I started asking him questions. He gave me some info as to where and whom they stayed with and whatnot. So I am now equipped with more information for when I buy my plane ticket. Very excited about that…

I stepped away from my computer for a few minutes and Krysta came down and wrote a note saying she is going to take her sea salt bath. When she had come back down we both worked on some things and then we decided to have a deeper conversation which were needed and deep. The day before working with Nora, things came up for me that I have been ignoring and subconsciously wishing would just disappear. They struck such a cord with me that I became instantly vulnerable and for the first time cried in front of a complete stranger. Like convulsing crying.

So when Krysta and I started talking I was in the middle of saying something and it happened again, convulsing crying. I was glad to be able to release such emotions and let them go. Last night too, my friend found out her uncle passed on. So she was feeling that as well. This day and last night were very heavy.

And without even knowing it, Krysta mentioned she just wanted fried foods. So we looked up a place around the corner and made our way to a pub. For some good old fashion bar food. Mind you, I haven’t eaten fried foods in months, I kinda forgot about that. So we go and order these apps and everything was fantastic until later that evening.

We get back to the Inn, Krysta is getting ready for bed, I still need my bath so I start it up. I sat in there trying to stay in it for 45 mins. I had to get out after 20 mins, I was well over heated and super wobbly. I get ready for bed and crawl in, just to be woken up at some peculiar hour because my stomach was in a tizzy.

I go to the bathroom sweating and with a killer migraine. I lay on the floor on the tile where its much cooler. My stomach didn’t like that. So I sat in front of the toilet thinking oh my god, if I throw up my head is going to pop off. I needed to find an elastic for my hair. I stood up and almost fell over and found one right next to Excedrin migraine pills…I am so awesome I thought. I felt like I was going to have to wake up Krysta to go to the store and buy me some in the middle of the night.

I make my way back to the bathroom where I bow my head to the porcelain goddess and realize I am going to have to do this myself. This is not something I enjoy doing, ever, but at this moment I had too. I stuck my fingers down and up it all came. All I kept thinking was, I really need to be better for my drive tomorrow. We had to drive home from Canada in the morning and it was going to be about 9 hours long or more.

I finally managed to crawl back in bed, I took 2 pills and begged the angels for relief. Next thing I know it’s 630 am. I pop 2 more and go back to sleep. I finally got up and although I wasn’t 100% I still felt good, slightly airy but coherent.

Lesson learned, again, with fried foods. I forgot I hadn’t eaten fried foods in a long time and then I way over ate. So since I have been home, no fried foods.

PEI, Here we come

Day 3 of our adventurous journey

We had decided to take our time leaving St. Andrews. Sleep was important and was was our morning routines. Eventually we packed up our belongings and left the room, headed to down to eat breakfast before we depart. We took one last looky lou around the room and saw it was snowing outside…booooo! I remember one other time it snowed on my birthday, so uncool mother nature.

Anyways, we meandered down to the restaurant and ordered the breakfast sandwich, if you happen to go there, make sure you try that at least one time…so delicious!

We both looked at each other and realized that the bridge to PEI had a toll, I told Krysta, I have a $1. She looked at me with her quirky smile and said yeah, probably more than that. So I googled it. I just about choked on m y water when I read $47 and change. I certainly did not exchange any money so hoping they take CC we left. We later found out that they do take CC, however not until you leave PEI.

We start our 4 plus hour journey to Prince Edward Island. Today, the 25th is my actual birthday and as we drove on, the rain kept on and the snow kept appearing. I don’t mind the snow but with snow comes cold weather and when you are on the water its windy so I was not 100% enjoying the drive. Especially because I was driving (my new car).

We passed through many small areas of nothing and then we would come up and more nothing. We did drive through a major city, if that’s what you would like to call it. It was cute and quaint and at this time I cannot recall the name of the town. But they did have a Costco! hahaha.

Needless to say we make it to the bridge. It really was beautiful and wicked long, I’m pretty sure it’s about 8 miles. You look out and nothing but ocean. Gorgeous. However I was driving so I had to be cautious and keep my eyes on the road.

We continue to drive for what feels like forever by now. We finally make it to our Bed n Breakfast spot. WOW, gorgeous and centered basically downtown. It is called “Fairholm INN”.

We pull in and unload after checking in. Our room was so cute and quaint, there were 7 rooms I believe 6 were upstairs and the dining area was equipped with a fireplace and lounging and about 5 two top tables for breakfast all set with plates and menus for the next mornings breakfast.

I stepped outside to grab a couple more things out of the car and ran into the owner, Brook. I was staring at my phone while walking to my car and I hear a voice, he’s friendly! I look down and this huge beautiful dog came running up to me, so excited to play I pet him as he jumps around me in excitement. Brook let me in on some good eats around the area, I let him know we did not want to be in the car any longer. So he suggested several places around the block.

Krysta and I landed at Terra Rouge, small menu, but there was something for the both of us. So we stayed. At this point I was achingly hungry, I was sweating even though it was raining because I needed something in my belly. I asked the lovely lady if they had any bread, because at this point I couldn’t even focus on the menu. She brought out some delicious bread and butter.

For those of you who don’t know me…I LOVE BUTTER!

I slathered the bread with the weird looking butter and starting eating. I just about fell to the floor wondering what on earth this woman just gave me, it was the best tasting butter I had ever eaten! She came back and told me it was miso butter and they make it in house. My mind was blown. I needed more of this, like all the time. Even though I don’t really eat alot of bread at all, I would figure out a way to consume the amount of butter I purchased from them.

After dinner we wandered back to the inn and decided to rest for the remainder of the evening. Two long days of driving we were tired. The beds we had were amazing comfortable. I always bring my own pillow but I didn’t need to. I was all cozied up on my twin bed.

Krysta was nervous about falling out of her bed, but gratefully she didn’t!

Here is the info for Fairholm Inn and Terra Rouge.

Birthday Weekend

Day 1 of our adventure…

My best friend kept asking me what I wanted to do for my birthday at least a month in advance. All I knew is that I wanted to get out of town, but where. After lots of pondering, we decided to go to PEI, Prince Edward Island. I had never been, or least don’t recall ever going even as a child and she has once as a child.

We decided we would leave on Wednesday and return on Sunday. My intentions for this trip was to relax and chill. No major plans besides romping on the grounds where Anne of Green Gables was filmed.

Our journey began around 9 am on Wednesday morning, we took off with excitement and joy. Our first stop was breakfast, neither one of us really eat breakfast like many do. So we decided to stop at the “Maine Diner” in Wells and have breakfast burritos. YUMMMM

Off we went, We decided to take the scenic route to the first hotel in Saint Andrews, Canada. Lots of weird roads and creepy broken down houses mixed with beautiful scenery and interesting things to find on the side of the road. Like a stuffed unicorn in someones yard near the road propped up by a tree stump.

Our travels took us some time but we were just super excited to cross the border into Canada. Just to find out that we still had 2 more hours to go, or at least thats what it felt like, lol! The journey was beautiful but I was ready to just sit and relax, eat and jump into the Jacuzzi.
