Carrot with dip and peas.
Sort of ants-on-a-log!
It is a beautiful spot, bought for the land and the 150-year-old home renovated to be a rental. There is a lovely renovated barn, suitable for weddings (here is one bride & groom's photos!), barn dances, and big parties.

and scared her Gramma!
Someone thought that was really funny!
The kids have had friends pop in from southern Ontario, and been having a blast. We were their sole Wednesday visitors!
The house has four bedrooms and can sleep lots of people. Thursday and Friday they had 7 adults and 10 kids in the house. Caitlin and Dave had a birthday party, as they share Aug. 16th. It was delightful.
Prince Edward County is a fun place to visit. Sandbanks Provincial Park is amazing, even on a chilly day.
We share photos on iCloud, and it looked like so much fun. I know many of our fellow grandparents wish they could be closer and visit more often. This is a good alternative, as well as blogging, Skype, etc. We are modern grandparents!!!
We weren't there for the fooferaw, as we had to be back in town for hubby's follow-up food intolerance test appointment on Friday with our Naturopath, Dr. Jen. We just had a one-day visit with the kids, and drove back in pouring rain, with frogs hopping across the road in the dark. Yikes.
I suspected this when he was having stomach issues, on top of cancer and cancer treatments. The drugs are merciless. Now, we know. Yes, a bit of a shock. We shall regroup and create a plan. Thank goodness for our local Foodsmiths, with their organic, vegan foods; on-line shopping; vitamin supplements, protein shakes, dairy-free products; as well as well-trained and informed staff, who've been supportive during his cleansing diet. Ever onward.
These folks, the Vaders, are part of my son-in-law's family. Something like cousins once removed...his grandmother's brother...
They bought the property for the land, for farming, but rent out the house after 8 years of renos.
The house was bought from a couple in their 90s, very busy farmers and involved in the community. The Vaders have kept some of the furniture, and the artifacts in the house, which is so respectful.
What a project! Such a fun extended family! How wonderful to be able to support local family farms!
