Every time we have gone to PEI, Vanessa has really bugged me about visiting nice spots around the Island. On our 6th trip to PEI, we decided to take a road trip at golden hour with two other talented photographers, my friend Jeremy Vessey and my younger brother Patrick Berrigan (links to their websites). We drove with the windows down and took the scenic route, stopping to take some photos of foxes, that just posed for us for 20 minutes. We didn't have a zoom lens, but Vanessa was able to get two feet away from these little babies and they seemed happy to be putting on a photoshoot. We got to Cape Tryon, cracked open some ciders and enjoyed the sunset. We took a lot of photos, got the drone up in the air and it was truly inspiring. I've been meaning to shoot more tourism stuff as I really believe telling stories will make people want to visit this beautiful Island. It's crazy to think that so many people go living without exploring what this beautiful place has to offer and I'm really proud to call it my hometown.
Back here today with another beach blog post, I have no idea whether you're sick of them or can't get enough of PEI beaches! We had a blast with some good friends of ours Dante Leon and Grace Stavert - they've both appeared on the blog before. We knew they were coming down to the Island so we all decided to hit the beach on this warm summer afternoon. The good drinks, good weed and good vibes were flowing. Unfortunately, I realized I only had less than 10% camera battery remaining when we got to the beach, so we quickly plugged it in the car charger and were able to recharge on the way to Richard's, which totally saved us. I've learned in the past few weeks to carry my camera everywhere I go; I make sure I don't miss a moment and in turn, I get some crazy memories & feels while looking at those images. I feel like I'm going back to the source to when I used to document my friends growing up! Dante played us some unreleased music all afternoon and we couldn't help but be so impressed at his talent. Stay tuned for his work coming out soon!
Richard's Fresh Seafood and Lobster down at the Covehead Wharf is one of the best spots on PEI to grab a mouth watering Lobster Roll or a round of Fish n Chips while soaking in the incredible view. It's for sure the best way to end a beach day while the sun is setting if you're in that area.
I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. We had a great little Canada Day keg party in Charlottetown at one of our friends parents beautiful home at the end of the boardwalk at Victoria Park. We had a great view of the fireworks and the Upstreet beer was flowing all night. Our bud Phil Enserink from East Cape Oyster Company brought shucked some of his best "Sand Dunes" oysters that he brought for everyone. All in all it was a great night, super underwhelming fireworks considering the Canada 150 thing and being in the birthplace of confederation and all but it never broke our spirits.
