When I asked him how he came to be in the County, he explained that three years ago, Neetha spotted a house she loved in a real estate ad. “Where is it?” Linwood asked. “Prince Edward County,” she said. “Prince what?” he replied. “They’ve got wineries and festivals and restaurants and this great beach.” Read More
