So sad to have left this gorgeous little island. We didn’t get a lot of time here, we would have definitely appreciated more, but now we know for next time… The shopping? Fab. The houses? Picture book perfect. The people? Friendliest Canadians ever. The weather in the winter which is keeping us from upping sticks and buying out here to live? Heartbreaking. We did run into a few city folk like us who said eff it, and moved out East and not one of them looked remotely like they cared they were missing out on anything. Lots of suspicious ‘smiling’ and looking relaxed …. If downtown Charlottetown can have a kick ass sneaker shop, then maybe there’s hope for us yet. Go to PEI. Go to Charlottetown. It’s worth the drive, could not have been a nicer place. (There’s enough filament bulbs and real Neapolitan pizza for everyone, don’t fret)
Sweeping generalization alert: ALL the houses in historic Charlottetown look like this
Our hotel/fancy grandma’s. They are reno-ing to update, but chintz abounds in these halls…
Even the faux Banksy is quaint! CANNOT EVEN DEAL
Somehow a house this colour can look ADORBS with right accent colour. Just ask for something in the ‘found inside a leaky diaper’ colour family
See? Even business buildings are straight out of a quaint teen drama with ridiculously eloquent love triangles
A proper English pub, though the local lilt is more Irish…
City Hall. Can we discuss a trade? Yours is way cuter.
Oh you know just driving by this beautiful scenery that is someone’s actual life
The House, the LEGEND that is Green Gables
Hope you like wallpaper…
Cause every room had it. Even Matthew’s.
Our new fave colour combo
And yeah that a close up on that wallpaper, cause you couldn’t believe it, right?
La piece de resistance: Ann’s bedroom, complete w carpet bag (lost my proverbial sh$& with this room)
