    1. Covehead Beach – North Shore, P.E.I.
      Soft white sand between your toes, ocean that stretches forever and blends with the sky.  Salt air smell that can’t be bottled or infused in to a plastic tree for your car.

    1. Victoria Park, Charlottetown
      Any time you want, (assuming you work in Charlottetown) you can simply walk out your office door and take a stroll along the boardwalk.  You can see and smell the ocean and then go back to work.

      Most entertaining street meat I’ve ever had.  Read about him here

    3. Keppoch Beach
      Literally 2 kms from my front door.

    1. It’s a beautiful place to get married.
      I had the honour of photographing a wedding this weekend.  It was a fun and relaxed day (at least for me) and I enjoyed it thoroughly.  The day was as beautiful as the bride. You could feel the love all around you.  It did make me long for the same sense of community though…

    1. Golf
      There is world class golfing at almost every corner.  How often do you get this view from the T ?  My son and I went to the driving range after work.  SO easy!

    3. Big yards
      Small city, more space, means bigger yards = Dog Life

    1. Visitors – Live here, and the visitors will come.
      If you live in vacation land, people will visit you on vacation.  Here is my friend and I at Anne of Green Gables (not that you can tell with a blasted out phone picture, sorry Anne with an E) enjoying the day playing “tourist at home” even in a monsoon.

    1. East Coast is easy to explore from PEI
      Okay Okay it’s a stretch.  I wasn’t actually IN PEI this weekend, BUT it was a super easy 24 hour trip to visit friends and enjoy a wine tour in NS from here. And we found this little ditty in the middle of a vineyard. How fun!

    1. Less light pollution
      Even in the city, you can see stars.  You can get  a sense of how small we are in the universe and that the distance across the country is really just a blip .  Can you feel the same  in a big city?

    1. Brakish
      It’s Taco Tuesday.  Could have gone for tacos but nachos are a close second and a first choice at Brackish along with a nice view of the harbour and fenced in yard with activities for kids so they don’t get bored, making dinner-out with kids a pleasant possibility.

    2. Cows
      Enough said!

    3. Clean ocean air
      Air pollution is minimal here.  We get a fresh ocean breeze most days that smells like salt and freedom.  Pollen on the other hand…

    1. Old Home Week
      Sure it’s smaller than other bigger cities, but isn’t that what makes it that much better?  The smell of cows, horses, popcorn, and cotton candy all mixed together with the sound of the horse races and rides with kids screaming.

  1. Today was a washout
    Soo I missed a day.  With the heavy rains, the day wasn’t a day to be excited about with a failed sump pump, torrential rains, and flooding in the basement.  Being close to the ocean is wonderful, having some of that ocean in my house, not so much.

  2. Rise and Climb
    Because there’s always something for kids to do outside in the summer.

  3. It’s safer
    Haven’t locked my door since I moved here in 2009 except that one time I left my keys at a friends house and locked myself out.  That ONE day!

  4. The side of the road
    Even driving home, a sunset can catch your eye.  Take that big cities, you can’t compete.

  8. These red cliffs and a light house
    So close to home, I can take the dog for a walk on the beach anytime.

  9. The Handpie Company
    Because you can buy a personal sized pie that you can eat with your hands. You always win with pie.  Always!

  10. Have I mentioned safety?
    I can take the dog for a walk down a long and quiet road after dark without a care in the world besides maybe mosquitoes. No need for those F****rs…
