Friends

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Here in the Cove, once you’ve cleaned the school and washed dishes so many times with this person and that, you can’t help becoming friends. Pauline Thomson is one such friend and I think she deserves a proper

A closer look

A closer look

The Nature of PEI
by Gary Schneider

Winter on Prince Edward Island can present some challenges if you don’t enjoy cold temperatures, dislike shovelling, or need to drive on snow-clogged roads. Sometimes you just feel like huddling indoors and staying warm. But not always.

This old house

This old house

by JoDee Samuelson

Along the shore where the highway makes a gentle s-curve as it dips and crosses the brook, there stood an imposing house with steeply pitched roof, gingerbread trim and wide shady veranda. It was the envy of all the farmhouses around, for none of them had such a grand polished maple staircase, or chandelier in the front parlour, or front door adorned with a ruby

Winter birding

Winter birding
