[PHOTO] Around Rick’s Fish and Chips, St. Peters’

I mentioned earlier this month visiting Rick’s Fish and Chips in St. Peter’s with my parents. It’s a good restaurant, scenically located.

I quite liked the colourful patio.

This neat, fenced-off house behind the restaurant also caught my eye.

[PHOTO] Eight Toronto photos

Today’s posting is another aggregation of Instagram photos I’ve taken in Toronto over the past week, on Bloor Street, near Yonge and Dundas, around Church and Wellesley, and finally in Kensington Market.

(Normal posting will hopefully resume tomorrow, when I actually get a working laptop.)

[PHOTO] Airport photos from Toronto and Charlottetown

Leaving Toronto on Saturday the 19th, I saw plenty of things at Toronto Pearson International Airport. Take the sight of pedestrians crossing with their luggage.

Normal, too, was seeing the 192 Airport Rocket ready to depart.

WestJet planes were lined up and visible from the terminals.

Leaving the much smaller Charlottetown airport, things were quieter. Tania Doucet‘s mural “Sailing Island Skies” is decidedly nice to see.

The WestJet plane sent to take me back to Toronto looked rather beautiful in the early dawn light.

[PHOTO] Walking Stanhope beach, Prince Edward Island National Park

This evening, I walked along the beach in the coastal community of Stanhope, inside the Prince Edward Island National Park, with my parents.

The Stanhope beach is a favourite beach of mine, a beautiful white sand beach stretching out along the shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. I posted last year`s photos here this March. Below are what I think are the highlights of this year`s visit.
