Row in the New Year

The New Creative
by Cassandra Bernard

New fitness rowing studio in Charlottetown

New Year, new me. The same as last year and the year before, right? All of us vow to get in better shape in the New Year, but rather than overwhelming yourself with promises to reach a goal weight or to eat better, how about just have fun and try something new. 

A new fitness boutique opened up this past summer

How I Learned to Cook: Ilona Daniel

Ilona Daniel is a great ambassador for PEI food, a cooking instructor, a Ms. Fix-it for restaurants looking for help with their menus. She is as beautiful and exotic as her food. But, as she explains, her beginnings in the kitchen were humble.

The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

The winter solstice has come and gone. We’re on the up-swing now! As the sun rises higher in the sky, every day grows a little longer.

A gift of Island poetry: Beth Janzen

Curated by Deirdre Kessler 

GHOSTS
