Prince Edward Island will force you to re-evaluate your favorite color. Whatever your answer is to that question, if you spend any time here, your new answer is….the color purple. Wildflowers called Lupin grow all over the island in the summer. Every roadside ditch or unmowed edge is full of the these purple shoots of grape, plum, pink, and fuchia stems. They are so beautiful in the forefront of all the green pastured farmland, you can’t believe your eyes. Two years ago, I was waiting on a crappy dryer to finish my towels in an RV park outside Corpis Christi, Texas. An older woman was wearing a T-shirt with Prince Edward Island on the front, so I asked about it. Before the towels reached “Still semi-damp” status, I knew I wanted to see this little sliver of land. Now that I am here, I want to stay. The island is full of fertile farmland with these cottages and/or farmhouses that look like a post card. There is water everywhere. The food is amazing. We have celebrated Canada Day on July 1st. We have been clam digging and dined on our digging results. We have hiked red sand beaches and photographed lighthouses. We have chatted with lobster fishermen and eaten lobster burgers. We have strolled and hiked, ridden and photographed, marveled and smiled. The temperature is 62, the dog is happy, the windows are open, and we are all smiles.
