Life in Prince Edward Island

Known for its magnificent beaches, iron-rich red soil and picturesque landscape

“Prince Edward Island is rich with its wonderful lifestyle! Enjoy a day boating, relaxing at the beach, grand biking trails, or perhaps a day at all the wonderful local shops. Experience history first-hand, fine foods with incredible seafood dishes, warm and friendly islander hospitality, the legendary Lucy Maud Montgomery sites, or the Island’s annual Cavendish Beach Music Festival. There’s also so much more to discover.

If you are visiting for a PEI vacation, you may discover Canada’s best kept secret and never want to leave!

My videos and blog posts feature some of my family’s favourite Island experiences and places to visit.  I hope you enjoy them!”

 – Powerhouse Patty –

You never know what peace is until you walk on the shores or in the fields or along the winding red roads of PEI in a summer twilight when the dew is falling and the old stars are peeping out, and the sea keeps its might tryst with the little land it loves. You find your soul then. You realize that youth is not a vanished thing but something that dwells forever in the heart.

– Lucy Maud Montgomery

Prince Edward Island is where you will fine yourself turning to nature…with the Island’s beautifully stunning, 1100km of red shoreline, kissed by the white capped waves of the Atlantic Ocean. “The Garden Province”, as they say, has 23 Provincial Parks, for day use, private access, community and campgrounds, and the 60km stretch of the Prince Edward Island National Park. The National Park is made up of seven (supervised) beaches of the Island’s North Shore; including over 50km of cycling and hiking trails from tip to tip.
