More Q&A. See the first set of Q&A in an earlier post.
How do I get to PEI?
Prince Edward Island is accessible by air: Flights usually route through Montreal or Halifax. However, in the summertime, there are many more flights coming from other major centres in North America. You can also get here by Ferry from Caribou NS to Wood Islands PE. Consult the schedule and verify. In the off season, there are just a few trips per day and the ferry closes from Christmas to late spring. In the summertime, the ferry is quite busy and reservations are recommended. You can also take the bridge from New Brunswick. This is truly a memorable experience and the bridge is a wonder feat of architecture. Again you should check the bridge status during inclement weather. High winds will cause travel restrictions. Note that you only pay when you leave PEI. The bridge will cost a regular vehicle $43.25 and the ferry will cost you $65.
How big is Prince Edward Island?
The Island is 224 km (140 mi) long and from 6-64 km (4-40 mi) wide. The total area is 5,660 square Kilometres (2,184 sq. mi). The Population is about 140,000 which does not amount to much more than one medium city elsewhere. This being said, PEI is the most densely populated province in Canada. Thus you are unlikely to ever get lost in the middle of nowhere, and perhaps more important, you are not likely to ever get stuck in a half hour traffic jam.
What are the symbols of PEI?
On greenvaleacres.com, I found details the coat of arms, flag, etc for PEI.
It is another nice day on PEI and I’m off to the garden. More about PEI tomorrow
