Subject: News from the people who found your message in a bottle

Hi there, you people from the other side of the atlantic!

On our holiday in canada we made a short stop for 3 days in Prince Edward Island. We (who are Mireille, Guy and our daughter Sophie) went for a walk along the Brackley Beach. Guy and I were talking about everything and anything and playing with Sophie. Guy remembered himself about a found of a message in a bottle years ago in Holland. We laughed about it and then a few minutes later Guy saw a bottle under the sea grass on the beach.
We were all curious and pulled it out of the grass.
First we were not sure if there was something inside but then we discovered the plastic bag. Guy opened it and surprise, surprise there was your letter.
We could not believe that we had found once again a message in a bottle (and after talking about it 10 minutes ago)
Even if your bottle didn’t make a very big trip across the sea, your letter is now on a european table in Luxembourg in a small village called Wahlhausen.
We were all really happy to read your lovely letter.
We hope you had a good vacation! Our Canada tour for 2 weeks was really amazing. We discovered a beautiful landscape and met a lot of nice people.

We did stop off in Waterville, Maine for a sandwich and discovered a little walking park. Other than that, we drove home the remaining five hours, discussing our trip and picking our favorite thing about each day. This is what we picked:

Going to Saint John, New Brunswick after leaving Prince Edward Island was the best plan we had! We found some off the road stops, well visited tourist spots, and some great night life on Saturday. It was a perfect day of travel to end a perfect week long stay on the island!


Of course, it was sad to say goodbye to PEI. I love it there and this would be the last time I’d see the camp where it had been my entire life. Due to erosion of the island, my family is forced to relocate the A-frame. They will be moving it back in September… Thank God my grandfather thought ahead and purchased the land behind the camp as well!

Sea glass found on the northern shores of Prince Edward IslandDay 8… oh no! The LAST day on Prince Edward Island. I’m pretty sure Bill and I both were feeling sad at this realization. However, we were also excited for a new adventure. We knew before we left we were not going to do the entire 12 hour trip in one day. On the way up we planned it to see Stephen King’s house in Bangor, Maine and then arrive at the camp on Saturday. For our return trip, we hadn’t yet decided what to do, but we knew it was going to be good!


So, our final day on the island brought some goodbyes to Tignish, Prince Edward Island, preparations and tidying of our stuff, and some planning for the next spot we would wander to but first the day…

We were having so much fun together, visiting the sites like O’Leary Potato Museum and West Point Lighthouse but all good things must come to an end. Thursday was our second to last full day on the island and we still needed to go to Alberton! Alberton, Alberton, Alberton… all roads seem to lead to Alberton, Prince Edward Island! Or at least all the intersections we went through from North Cape to Summerside point there, and yet we hadn’t made it there.
