those are pics of prince edward island canada. as you can see, it is full of relaxing pastoral views and charm. the landscape is green and gentle-looking....nice slowly rolling meadows and fields.

i was wondering if there was anywhere in the usa i can find the same thing...it need not be an island. but somewhere pastoral and nice and far from the bustle of modern life....somewhere with similar calm terrain. i know maine is close to PEI but it is far too rugged and rocky....anywhere in the southern states like PEI? are'nt some places in the south supposed to have a relaxed rural lifestyle evocative of a bygone era?
