Prince Edward Island is amazing to visit. It is small enough that you can see the whole island, but also big enough that you could spend a couple weeks here and still not see everything. Some people told me that spending 2 weeks here was going to be overkill unless I liked to golf or going to the beach everyday. Personally I could have spent a month or more here as I still didn’t see everything I wanted. I took my time, talked with people, toured around in my car, met up with old and new friends and took loads of photos. This is a place to spend a few months to relax and unwind but only during the summer/fall months! LOL You don’t want to be here during the hard winters.
I heard many stories about how you wouldn’t want to move here though. A lot of people get wrapped up in the calmness, beauty and easiness of the Province, as well as how friendly everyone is that some end up moving here. Upon hearing stories, I don’t think I would want to move here. It seems Islanders don’t want people to move here….it is hard to fit in, hard to find work and you will Never be one of them. You will always be “from away” no matter how long you live here. So I think the perfect scenario is to “move” here for a few months during the summer/fall time and then move back to your home or on to somewhere else.
There are some amazing houses on PEI….wide open spaces, water views, near the beaches……these are a few of my favourite 🙂
I got to go to my first kitchen party/Ceilidhs (pernounced Kay-Lee), also a Hoot-n-Nanny, and Dunes and Tunes. They are live music events put on around the Island, and throughout the Maritimes….Some are straight music and some incorporate dancing and step dancing. The are amazingly good fun and funny.
A view of the Confederation bridge that goes from New Brunswick to PEI. It costs $46.00 to get off the Island, you don’t need to pay anything to get on PEI. It is such a long bridge it takes about 10-15 mins to get across it.
All the buoy’s are mussels waiting to be harvested.
Hanging out with Sir John A. MacDonald in Charlottetown, the red sand PEI is famous for, and the Ugliest mermaid I have ever seen! hahaha
I loved meeting up and hanging out with some amazing friends here 🙂
Yummy muscles and the famous Cows ice cream with some great friends. Another great thing here is all the Dairy Bars everywhere….pull on over and pick up a “small” cone. 😀
One of my favourite things to eat was lobster rolls….mmmmmmm
