We Took our Tails to the Trails

This is what our weatherman calls sun....

We parked behind the University of Prince Edward Island

And walked our tails off on the trail....

We stopped to admire these gorgeous race horses...grazing in the field

And enjoy some pretty wildflowers

After a much needed cold drink..we headed home for a long afternoon nap!

We'll be glad when Monday we can get some rest!!

A Time to Paws & Reflect

Since it was overcast today, we loaded up the kritterkins & decided to stroll about an area of the city known as "Olde Charlottetown". First stop was, Beaconsfield. Built in 1877 for a wealthy shipbuilder & merchant, Beaconsfield is a historic Victorian home.

With twenty-five rooms & eight fireplaces Beaconsfield was one of Charlottetown’s finest homes. Nowadays, it's open for tours & special events in its Carriage House.

Beaconsfield is also where the tv series
"Emily of New Moon" (a sequel to Anne of Green Gables) was filmed..

Charlottetown is known as the "Birthplace of Confederation"'s where
this great nation of ours all began!

Canada's first Prime Minister, elected in 1867...Sir John A. Macdonald stopped to have his photo taken with us! (well, he's is an actor in character...there are a
number of actors who stroll the city in the summertime, giving tours & chatting with tourists).

Mixing the old in with the new....this is where our
Dad earns his kibble! Across the street from Beaconsfield!

As we strolled along, we admired a few of the
beautiful Victorian mansions...

But, as usual...we saved the best for last!!
