What to do in PEI #4 : Go find a ridiculous PEI Mailbox!!!

In all our driving here in PEI over the last two summers, it seems that people love putting up strange and unique mailboxes. For instance, on our way to North Cape yesterday, we happened to see this giant PEI mailbox.

It looks like Majo could fit inside the mailbox

Here’s another set of the classic PEI Mailbox

As we’ve travelled over the island I’ve realized that people take tremendous pride in their lawns. There are houses and farms with very unique and interesting spreads that range from amazing flower displays, hand made bird feeders to lighthouse mailboxes protected by concrete gargoyles.

There are also farms with super creepy scarecrows … especially those in the middle of nowhere. However far you drive in PEI, you’ll always find something great on people’s lawns or the atypical PEI Mailbox.

This is one of add to the giant PEI mailbox picture archive : totally borrowed this from Roadside Wonders.


However with the reduction or elimination of mail service in Charlottetown and Stratford, we might not have the option of creating an awesome PEI mailbox, which makes me sad : http://www.theguardian.pe.ca/News/Local/2014-11-21/article-3947896/UPDATE%3A-Home-mail-delivery-to-end-in-Charlottetown,-Stratford/1
