We were only on the island for a week, but from what we gathered, people of Prince Edward Island are very proud of their local food. And proud they should be! Everything we ate on our trip was so fresh and delicious! I haven’t gone strawberry picking since I was about knee high. We would always go with a couple other families, and the children would pile on the wooden wagon, and off we go to the berry field. But this berry picking experience was a little different.

We drove to the berry farm twice. The first time, it was closed. The second time, it was also closed. It took an hour to drive from the cottage to the farm and we didn’t have time to go back to try a third time, so Jin told the farmer our situation, and asked if he would let us go to the field to pick a few small baskets of strawberries.

The farmer said yes.

So, we had the entire field to ourselves, me, Jin, a lot of daisies, and the strawberries.

It was one of the best days of our trip!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the wonderful response to the photos of our trip so far! It is so nice to hear from all of you! I only have a few more postings from PEI, as much as I really loved it there, it is almost time for me to go back to reality. But one can still reminisce for a little while longer.....
