Prince Edward Island

It's been a long time since I posted - quick note to say I am in P.E.I. for the next couple of days, and have just driven from St. John, New Brunswick.

On a shoot with Red Apple ( http://www.redapple.com ). The show is called "Opening Soon", and we are shooting the first day on two episodes. The director on the two episodes is Rina Barone.

The first one covered a German couple opening a restaurant in St. John called "Opera". Alex and Margaret run an incredible inn / dining room called the Dufferin Inn ( http://www.dufferininn.com ), where the food and service is truly first class.

Tomorrow we shoot day one on a restaurant opening called the Day Boat ( http://www.dayboat.ca ), to be run and managed by Gordon Bailey, a young entrepeneur here in P.E.I., originally from Winnipeg.

I have no pictures to post right now, but hopefully tomorrow. I am staying at a hotel called the Great George Inn, which has wireless high speed and enables me to post with ease without worrying about charges by the minute.

Quick mention: it has been surprising to see how many hotels and caf├ęs have high speed as part of their free service here on the east coast. This is a good trend!
