Prince Edward Island

Sandwiched between two bodies of water, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northumberland Strait, sits a crescent-shaped island....PEI.

It is an island steeped in history with a good mix of Scottish, Irish, Acadian and Mi'kmaq heritage.

My maternal grandparents  ( MacIsaac's and MacDonald's) were born and raised on PEI. As a result I have been going there since I was a child and have always felt a close bond with the place. That side of the family has been there since the 1700's.

It's like 'going home' when we visit PEI. Two of my sisters and a brother share a place there and we were lucky to have been offered it again this year.

Here a few images that caught my eye.

At 'Singing sands' beach.


Sophie's 'own' pool!


Potatoes everywhere.


Hot out there!

Fishing village.

Now that's being 'green'!

Enough said.....

One way to get off and on PEI......another is a bridge.

Hey, Ron matches.

Petulant poppies.

Very spritely, eh?

Hardy little guy.

Wakey, wakey.

All aboard!

Until next time.......
