Sometime around St. Patrick’s Day, I bumped into a Facebook post comparing a lovely little corner of the world to mother Ireland. It resonated with me, seemed to be such a wild and beautiful place that I looked further. It became clear that this place – green and rural, small-town and snowy, full of lobsters and Irish moss – might be the place for me to retire to when the time comes…..and thus began the plan for the ‘Epic, Gardner Family (minus one that hates riding in the car) Road-trip’ – – almost 8,000 miles to Prince Edward Island Canada.
Last night we booked the anchor property – the place we will stay for 7 nights – a charming 2 bedroom home located in Historic Downtown Charlottetown. It is a five minute walk to the shops, restaurants, and theatres Downtown Charlottetown has to offer. The historic Charlottetown Waterfront and the Charlottetown Event Grounds are only minutes away.
…..and so….the adventure begins.
