Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a coffee?

On any of my 4 amazing Aunties back porches! (Or, if actually “paying” any of the funky little cafes on Victoria Row, downtown Charlottetown would suffice)

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a pint?

Our favourite place for food/beers and the view is Peake’s Quay. Yummy mussels, great Margaritas and a beautiful view over Charlottetown Harbour. The prices are reasonable and we’ve had everything from “date night” to a few bachelorette parties on their gigantic patio.Where’s your favourite place to shop in PEI?

Where’s your favourite place to shop in PEI?

Oh my….the options! I don’t know that I can narrow that down. All the quirky, quaint little spots you’ll find tucked in along country roads are so wonderful. Shops that offer everything from homemade pickles and jams to shell art and knitting. Every time we pass one, new to us or not, I insist we stop. You’ll meet some of PEI’s sweetest souls behind these counters all offering a smile and a story, plus advice on “must see” spots on PEI. I would recommend Victoria by the Sea and my mother’s beautiful birthplace of Alberton for an afternoon of strolling and shopping. (Be sure to stop at the Diner on the main drag for a scallop burger! Divine!) Of course, the options in historic downtown Charlottetown are endless…also a great way to spend the afternoon.

Where in PEI would we stand to see your favourite view?

Argyle Shores. It just offers all that PEI should have, red sandy beaches, those awe inspiring cliffs, the smell of the salt and surf. Starfish, hermit crabs and beach bums alike all adore this place. Any beach on PEI is a gift from God….to quote the Islands most famous redhead, “positively perfect in every way.”

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit PEI:

1. Eat!!!! Cow’s Ice Cream: Heavenly. Have lobster for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Buy new potatoes from a road side stand and boil ‘em up. You’ll have a new appreciation for potatoes.

2. Go for a Sunday drive. Take the dirt road less travelled. You’ll find something spectacular and awe inspiring, I promise you that.

3. Talk to the locals. They’ll be keen to hear your story. Listen to theirs. Islanders are truly the kindest souls on earth. They’re gracious and warm…and you’ll have a new friend for life and a reason to return.

What makes PEI such a special place on earth for you?

The Island is so true and organic. The people are real, hardworking folks. The scenery is incredible. The food, the sea, the smells, the feeling I get when I’m home in PEI....I’ve never felt more alive than when I’m on her shores. It’s like all the stars aligned and made this precious, perfect place filled with love and food and scenery. It’s kind of a magical secret. I’ll go to my grave insisting it’s the most beautiful place on earth.
