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 ( ). 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 ( ), where the food and service is truly first class.

Tomorrow we shoot day one on a restaurant opening called the Day Boat ( ), 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!
