"...Oh, but it's good to be home again! Redmond was splendid and Bolingbroke delightful -- but Prince Edward Island is HOME."
Anne of the Island
Well, it was Philadelphia, not Redmond, and Maryland, not Bolingbroke, and although they were both splendid and delightful, it is good to be home!
As we crossed the Confederation Bridge, we strained to catch a first glimpse of the Island, but it was invisible, shrouded in a thick blanket of fog and mist.
"It isn't there," a voice came from the backseat."Maybe it sank!"
Suddenly, the dense fog thinned and there it was - red cliffs, white-capped waves breaking along the shore, fields and woods...
As we drove off the bridge and onto solid ground, we all heaved a deep sigh of relief - HOME - still an hour and a half to drive, but to Islanders anywhere on this Island is home.
