As has become apparent to anyone reading Larry Muffin‘s recent posts or my entries on Facebook we are heading to an island for our winter vacation. Ah yes an island you say! Which one? St Kitts? Barbados? Grand Bahama? In which tropical paradise will we be swanning by the pool slathered in SP72 while sipping exotic rum concoctions garnished with sprigs of fresh mint and skewers of pineapple and mango?
Oh come now! Do you really think we would do anything as predictable as that?
No we’ll be proving ourselves real sons of the True North, strong and free(zing) by braving the winds and waves (frozen no doubt) of February on Prince Edward Island.
And as the song says:
If we can make it there,
we’ll make it anywhere!
It’s up to you PEI!
It’s up to you!
And in the meantime we’ve been studying up on Island history with the often amusing and always interesting PEI History Guy. Give him a read – there’s much to learn about the place we may shortly be calling home.
