P.E.I.: Day Two

Today started with us actually sleeping in until 6:30am!  To be clear, that's technically 5:30am our usual time, so technically not sleeping in, but we'll take it!  Ephraim had fallen asleep on the way to our cottage so he was quite delighted to wake up in a completely new place, especially one with a little park just a thirty-second walkaway, and a pool next door.  We wanted to keep today pretty low-key so after breakfast in North Rustico we headed to Charlottetown to get some groceries.  We have some particular food likes and we figured our best bet would be there at the Atlantic Superstore.  Have to say that we were a tad disappointed that we couldn't get a few things there - although we haven't give up hope and we know that we'll find them elsewhere!  P.E.I. don't let me down!
After that we bought some new swimwear and headed back to our cottage for lunch and then went to Backley Beach (the beaches here, which are part of the National Park system, require a pass to get into them - and one is included with our cottage - Huzzah!).  The Beach was beautiful, the sand was nice and warm, and the water was damn damn cold, but as you can see from the photo above Ephraim didn't seem to give a damn, he just wanted to run and hop and play in that frigid water!
So nothing too exciting today.  Tomorrow we're going on a series of adventures, so stay tuned for that!
