    The North Cape Coastal Drive is home to some of the most breath-taking vistas on Prince Edward Island – a picturesque place where rolling emerald hills give way to rugged red cliffs, and winding dirt roads lead to pristine sandy beaches.

    Digging for Dinner : Going Clam Digging in PEI

    As part of the wedding week, we did our second Meet and Greet at Fridas, which is a very popular bar on Arc Street in Antigua.
