Driving Around the Island ~ Farmlands and more ♥

PEI Dirt Shirt Factory
We wanted to go exploring so we loaded up in the car and headed out for a day of fun.... Right down the road from us is the PEI Dirt Shirt Factory...So we headed there to see what it was all about ~ it was about washing shirts and stuff in the RED dirt of PEI.  Seriously they put it in a cement mixer with red dirt and water and tumble it ~ then they wash it and dry it ~ then they put it on a hanger for you to buy... Someone was thinking! lol lol
However it does seem to be a great idea and they sell a ton of them all over the Island.



After that we started just driving around with a few things on our list to see ~ I am so overcomed by the beauty of this little Island and can't get over the beautiful views of the Canola fields, Corn fields and Potato fields along with the quaint coastal towns. I wanted to share so many views with you from our drive that I decided a slide show was in order... Sit back and enjoy the beauty of Prince Edward Island.

How beautiful was that???  Also I want to mention that the people we have met on this Island are some of the friendliest we have ever seen in all our travels... This is but one story of many while we visited this wonderful Island.  Meet Rolland & Brenda Smith ~ while looking for the Cheese Lady Gouda Farm we kinda got a little lost and they were working on their yard so we stopped and asked for directions.  After a few minutes and a thank you we were on our way to the Gouda Factory ~ sadly it was closed by the time we got there so we turned around... when passing their farm again we stopped and thanked them for the directions.  We also wanted to tell them how beautiful their home and all was.  Well that lead to an invite inside to see the renovations that they were making to the house and how he had taken an antique stove and was converting it into an electric one.  What a wonderful time we had visiting and what gracious people they were.  Also how talented is Roland doing all this woodwork and converting this beautiful antique stove into an electric one including an oven.
All the woodwork was hand done by Roland ~ even the ceilings ~ It was really stunning work
Last but not least I had to share this ~ while driving along we saw a farmer rolling his hay bales. Like a kid it excited me watching him suck up the hay like a vacuum and spit it out all rolled out ☺


Thanks for coming by and letting go on so long
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!

Our friend brought us a Red Dirt Shirt - I love it. He also fell in love with PEI. That woodwork is just incredible.

It is a beautiful place! Maybe I should get out in the no longer grassy fields and roll my t-shirts in the dead grass and call them grassy shirts .......
