If you’re interested in an Island lifestyle Pender’s warm and welcoming ambiance is pretty special. I had the pleasure of living there for many years, and still return their occasionally to visit my Grandmother who’s been there for 35 years. She loves her Island and will never leave. She has so many faithful friends that look out for her. When you are blessed with a lifestyle such as hers you’d be crazy to leave. Oh, did I mention she’s 91 and lives on her own. I know one of her most defining moments was when she made the decision to move to Pender Island and she has been living the life ever since.
