A Quick Trip to PEI

Fishing Boats along Gulf Shore ParkwayDave and I just got back from a quick trip to PEI to visit some of his family out there. It was a lovely weekend, all in all. We decided back in the winter that we should go out to visit, since only a few of Dave’s relatives from out East were able to make it to the wedding and to see Dave’s grandparents who are in a nursing home in Charlottetown. We bought the flight on aeroplan points, which is a great way to travel!

We left Fri at around lunch time, and arrived in Charlottetown in the early afternoon. We were met at the airport by Dave’s uncle Doug and went straight from there to the nursing home to see Dave’s grandparents. They both have Alzheimer’s, so the family had been trying to get them used to the idea of Dave and I visiting all week. They remember people they see all the time, but don’t remember others that they don’t see regularly. At times they seemed to know who Dave was, but at other times it was obvious that they didn’t.
