Prince Edward Islands???

June 4, 2014 22:40 – 22:40

In looking at a map of Prince Edward Island, I just realized that PEI comes very close to being two islands. There is a mere .7 mile stretch of land from the tip of a tributary of the Hillsborough River to an inlet of Savage Bay that prevents PEI from being cut in two. Here’s the view that spawned my investigation. Look at Charlottetown. It’s on the west (left) bank of the Hillsborough River, which cuts through most of PEI.

Looking in more detail, a tributary of the Hillsborough almost reaches an inlet of Savage Bay! In fact, it might even reach! I’d have to investigate in person to see. Maybe during a good rain, PEI really is Prince Edward Islands!
