Eclectic Tastes

Stompin' Tom is from Prince Edward Island and it is there that we are goin'.

My sister kindly offered us her cottage for a few days next week. We will leave Monday and be back on Friday.

The main crop on PEI is potatoes. They will be growing everywhere in every available field/space from one side of the Island to the other. This is where McCain's get their potatoes for their frozen French Fries....just in case you were wondering..

PEI is also the birthplace of Lucy Maude Montgomery, the author of Anne (with an 'e') of Green Gables.

It was also the birthplace of the Charlottetown Conference (1864) which started the process of forming the country of Canada.

As a child my family always spent part of the summer there. My mother's parents were both from PEI.

See you when we get back and have a great week.
