58. I vacationed there a lot as a child.
Edited on Sat Aug-27-05 03:17 PM by intheflow
My family took the pop-up trailer up every summer during the '70's. I have very fond memories of the island.

A friend of mine from high school in Massachusetts bought a summer cottage up there a couple of years ago. She's renovating it, and hopes to use it during the summer and retire to it eventually.

I say, buy now. You can't even look at land or houses on islands off the coast of northern Maine anymore. So I'd buy while the buyin' is good. It's my dream to live on an island up there.

*Edited to add: I understand the winters are cold, but you don't get whacked with as much snow as inland because the salt in the sea air supposedly keeps the snow from forming. Not sure if that's true, but that's what I've heard of islands off northern coasts.

**Edited a second time because this thread has inspired me to scour the web for beautiful imags of PEI. Here are a few:
