Edward Island is Heaven to Me
talk about Texas, Kentucky and Maine,
They talk about London, Paris and Spain,
But there’s a little Island I long there to be,
Prince Edward Island is heaven to me.

Edward Island. A heavenly place indeed if your own idea of heaven
is to spend time relaxing and luxuriating on vast stretches
of beautiful sandy beaches. Or perhaps heaven to you is simply
enjoying "fresh from the sea" lobster as well as many
other delicious seafood delicacies. Speaking of heaven...can
earthly soil really be as "red" as it is on PEI? Maybe
it really is a little piece of heaven after all. It's no wonder
they wrote a song about it. It's true!
PEI is the smallest and least populated of all of Canada's ten
provinces. It's historically referred to as the Cradle of Confederation
for the fact that it was in the capitol city of Charlottetown,
that the Fathers of Confederation gave formal birth to our fair
nation of Canada in 1867. We're famous the world over for our
lobster, potatoes, our friendly and accommodating natives and
of course our very own Anne Of Green Gables!

Islanders have traditionally thought of themselves and their
place in Canada as being special or somehow set apart from the
rest of Canada. It used to be at one time that you could only
travel to the Island by air or by ferryboat across the cold
& choppy Northumberland Strait. These days, there's the
Bridge a true engineering marvel which makes the nine mile
crossing very quick and easy.
