gorgeous photos. I have never been farther East than Montreal - I'd definitely like to, though!

I've never lived in PEI but I did visit there and yes I've heard winters can be kinda brutal in the east. My sister lives in NS and says that although the winters are a little milder than western Canada it is the humidity. She says that the cold just sticks to your bones and you can't seem to get warm. (of coarse that's not always-I don't wanna discourage you) It's really quite windy on the island and although the ocean is amazing to watch you probably wouldn't wanna swim in it even in august )
I think PEI would be a great place to live if you're retired or a fisherman. Other than that I think jobs would be a big obstacle.

Having recently moved from the Maritimes to the US, i'd have to agree with the "Jobs" part of your statement. In order to really take advantage of the Maritimes, you'd definitely want to have the occupational side sorted before relocating. bare in mind that I'm a bit biased as all of my family are from Cape Breton Island, but even after spending 18 years on the West Coast in Victoria on Vancouver Island, and Whistler (both in BC), I have to say that the Maritimes do have a beauty to rival the west, it's just a different kind. The difference between "Betty and Veronica" in many regards.
Pei has some great beaches that, due to where they are situated, are actually pretty warm and make for great swimming.
Great Pics, thanks for sharing

Your photos make me heartsick. My mom is from Antigonish and we lived in Halifax when I was little. Peggy's Cove and Lunenberg were frequent destinations. I had second cousins who lived at Malignant Cove and the water was definitely warm enough to swim in summer. Loads of jellyfish, though. I wish I could get up there more. I'm in South Carolina now; it's beautiful, too, but nothing is like the Maritimes. Dad is a Newfie - nothing like that island, either. So beautiful.

My husband and I drove out to Nova Scotia then took the ferry over to Newfoundland, we are in Windsor. The East Coast is absolutely gorgeous and we both thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We fell in love with Newfoundland~ the people were very friendly. We want to go back and spend another week on "the island" then cross over to Labrador. My husband has been out West, I haven't. He wants me to see the West as well although I do get the feeling from him that he prefers the East Coast.
It cost me a fortune to develop all the pics but they were worth every cent.

Well don't discount the west coast. Vancouver Island is extremely beautiful also.

Default Retirement home.

To the people who know the area what would be a go place to have a summer retirement home on N.S. or P.E.I.? I'm looking for some land or a low cost house that I can have when I retire in about 15 years and have for a summer home. Thanks in advance for the info.
