Wood Islands - Ferry unloading/loading vehicles


We spent the day traveling the eastern side of PEI along the scenic shore drive. Our first stop was at Cape Bear. The light house is no longer in use, it is now a museum to the Marconi station that received the first distress signal from the Titanic. We then continued along the drive to Murray head and Murray harbour, beautiful and are filled with wonderful views. As we went from Murray Harbour to North Murray Harbour we drove through Murray River, here we found the worlds longest Golf bridge, it is used to get from one side of the pond to the rest of the golf course. We stopped at several capes - St. Andrews Point, Panmure Island and Irving. At Panmure Island we visited the oldest wood lighthouse on PEI. When we got back to Wood Islands and our RV park, we saw an unusual site, two young ladies were getting some beer on their lawnmower, now that is an unusual way to get around. We saw from our site Nova Scotia and the ferry unloading/loading vehicles. We have found the people in the Maritimes very trusting, you find new potatoes for sell along the road, take what you want and put in the right amount of money in the box, no one is there. We got farm fresh eggs from a house where you got inside, open the refrigerator take what you want and leave the money in the box, wow.... We have enjoyed our PEI potatoes, especially after we found the “potato glove” it take the dirt, grim and some of the peel as you rub them under warm water.
