I just returned from an amazing 13 days in the Maritimes. As I watch the current pictures on TV about the remnants of Hurricane Irene, it is hard for me to reconcile the images I'm seeing with what I experienced while we were there. Blue skies and beautiful days.
The reason for the trip was to attend my sister's wedding on Prince Edward Island and we were truly blessed with wonderful weather in a beautiful location in a wonderful part of the world.
It looks like the worst of Irene is over and that the Maritimes have escaped most of the major damage of Irene, but to anyone who has been affected, either in Canada or along the eastern seaboard of the United States, I wish them speedy recovery. I'm reminded how quickly lives can change.
