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.
