22 Magic Moments from a PEI Summer

The total magic of a PEI summertime is never lost on those of us who get to spend it on PEI. Rolling hills are alive with crops, the work of farmers spending long days mixing passion with light and rain and always just a little luck. Blue-green seas toss and roll as fishers set sail each day, on a mission for the big catch. Those same seas produce the most joyful chorus of laughter when beach days turn into beach nights and the sun seems to scatter into a million stars in the sky.

There is magic in this Island.

As the last weeks of summer approach and life returns to the routine of school and work, here are a few of our favourite gifts the island has given us this summer!
