Last Thursday it was my younger brother Patrick's birthday and it just so happened that Nigel was taking the Sneaky Cheats team out to cater an event to launch a new beer at the new Copper Bottom Brewery that just opened in Montague. The brewery is located on top of a hill overlooking Montague River which is located in the south eastern end of Prince Edward Island. I spent a lot of time as a kid growing up in Montague because my mothers side of my family is from there. I haven't been there in years though and it was great to be back even if it was only for a few hours. We had some great food and great laughs accompanied by live music and unlimited beer flowing. If you're ever in that neck of the woods, I highly suggest checking out Copper Bottom.
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.
