My husband and I were in PEI for our very first time and had all our tours booked but had no time in our schedule to do the IRISH MOSS - SEAWEED SURPRISE TOUR. We did, however, arrange to meet and purchse some irish moss from the Gillis' and drove out to Point Prim to meet with them at their home. Well, this was just as good as a tour...so worthwhile that I am writing this review. Full disclosure: we did not purchase a tour so this review is about their warmth, knowledge, passion and friendly nature. If this is what they were willing to do (without charge) on a Sunday (Canada Day no less) for strangers, one can only imagine what a paid customer would receive! With the short amount of time we were with Gilbert and Goldie, we learned so much about irish moss. Goldie shared recipes with us and a pamphlet which she authored on this topic. Gilbert shared stories and all of his other talents (driftwood artwork) with us and regaled us with stories of the lighthouse in the area and the relationship to his family. Additionally, Goldie is quite the craftsperson and showed us the beautiful handmade mirrors rimmed in shells that she and her husband, together, make for sale. Oh, I want one of those so much! These are lovely, sharing people and I was so very much impressed with them. There is a warmness and delight in just being in their company. I would recommend their tour even though we were not fortunate enough to go on it with them...which surely will be rectified when we return to PEI.
