Another awesome sunset on PEI, although driving around an island, you never quite know which direction it's gonna come from. After happy hour (happy for everyone since the kids cozied up on the couch in the Airstream to watch a movie), we made a campfire and s'mores. Hot tip we learned from some Canadians last summer, they sell these cookies called "Digestives" in the supermarket that have chocolate on one side and make the ideal pre-Hershey'd bottom and lid for your perfectly toasted mallow. As @advodna_ann settled the kids, I followed the sound of a fiddle to a young guy sitting outside a camper, and invited him back to our campfire. We talked about the similarities and differences - in origin and evolution - between the Cape Breton style fiddle he'd learned from his family and the Bluegrass I'd been into for about 20 years now. With my mandolin out, we traded a few songs and I did my best to accompany him on a whirlwind of reels and jigs he'd known for years but couldn't tell me the names of. @bodes.well got a nice shot of the scene on their feed. #airstream #littleredairstream #liveriveted #myrivetedlife #princeedwardisland #pei #capebretonfiddle #smores
