PEI: the ruby isle?

If Ireland is the "Emerald Isle", Prince Edward Island should be the "Ruby Isle." The entire island is made of red rock and when it rains (and oh it rains ;) the island seems to almost bleed.

Raining or not though, this place is absolutely beautiful. Rolling green hills, red rocks, and an ocean view never too far.

It kind of makes you wonder why people leave... (the answer is that there aren't enough jobs)

 We've been having a great time in PEI and can't wait to continue our trip. Saturday involved a delicious lobster roll and a beautiful wedding. Sunday, sea kayaking and some outstanding oysters. And in there perhaps a little too frequently, great beer.
gahan house tasting flight. there was a red ale- but the stout was my favourite.
I've got more stories to share, but thought I'd share some pictures before you wondered if I'd been swallowed into the ocean.

What has been your favourite part of this (hopefully) long weekend?
