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.
