Tuesday August 4, 1998 - PEI

Fanningbrook - sunny and hot.

Mark and Cindy and I went to Cabot Beach Park on the northwest side of the island, to see the outdoor sets for "Emily" (TV show) and go to the beach. We toured around the sets—different buildings with no insides, except for the school and general store.

The "Disappointed House" is built overlooking the beach to appear as a collapsed house sunk halfway into the sand. So Mark and Cindy call any abandoned house or barn a "disappointed" house/barn.

The tour guide was very bored with her job and just wanted to go to the beach but couldn't. She said she had 20 more days to go of leading tours. It was supposed to be a 25-minute tour but we ended up taking an hour. Both Cindy and I forgot our cameras which was really too bad, there was a lot to see.

After the tour we spent an hour or more at the beach. I went swimming and the water was very warm, warmer than the air it seemed like. Mark enjoyed taking Yohan on the beach everywhere, but I think Yohan just wanted to lie down in the shade.

On the way home we stopped to buy cod for dinner. We got home late and had another late supper of cod and garden vegetables.
