My husband, myself, our 19-year-old son, and my mother are planning a trip to PEI this June, probably around the 8th or *maybe* a week later, for somewhere between 3 and 7 days. None of us are much into swimming, although canoeing is a definite option. Our son likes to hike, with his camera, "off the beaten track;" are there possibilities in that direction? My mother is interested mostly in beachcombing, so - odd question maybe - are there seashells on the beaches? (NW Florida, for instance, is not very good for seashell collecting, although the white sand is beautiful.) I am looking into getting a rental cottage right on a beach - there seem to be quite a few open at this time of year, but I am still trying to decide between the southern side and northern side...any advice is appreciated.
