So much of my spirit lies with Prince Edward Island…I’m very rooted there, simply because of my mother’s memory of her first 12 years in Summerside. Last summer I returned to some of the places and visited with people that are important to my family’s roots. I was to Cardigan, Georgetown, Baie Egmont, Souris, Summerside and other places….it was absolutely magical! I stayed in a cabin in North Rustico and took in the air, the water and the earth. Many coffees were enjoyed out on the morning porch…and glasses of wine sipped at the kitchen table while eating fresh mussels/scallops and clams.
