Realize your reality in a place called Prince Edward Island. PEI is nestled between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northumberland Strait, where the surrounding waters have a moderating effect on the weather and seasons. Summers are warm though rarely hot and winters are cold but rarely frigid. The coastal and pastoral beauty of PEI is something that shouldn’t be missed.
