When my beautiful Dendy and I considered moving to PEI there were three main criteria we considered. We wanted a rural life and in NYS we would never be able to afford a small farm. We wanted to escape the the tendrils of New York City which were spreading North to our region. We wanted a safe and secure place for our children to grow into young adulthood.
PEI did and continues to meet those requirements. 42 years has brought many changes to PEI – some undesirable – but I would do it all over again. We have our many warts but I am in the place I want to be. Growing up here shaped my children and I am proud of the adults they have become.
