We’ve spent the last two days exploring the southeast coast of PEI and of course, its just as beautiful as the north coast. Saturday we drove as far east as Orwell making many stops along the way. We stopped at Wood Islands to scope out the ferry to Nova Scotia and at several other lighthouses and harbors.

It was a beautiful day so we had our picnic lunch at the Wood Islands Lighthouse then at Point Prim, Marvin couldn’t resist the Malpeque oysters at the Chowder House there so he ate another lunch! The Malpeques are reportedly the best and he agreed.

There is so much beautiful farmland here and it goes right to the beach. The main crop is potatoes but we’ve seen lots of corn, grains, and other unidentifiable ones (to us anyway). We saw what we thought might be lavender also.

Today we drove north along the bays and coves to Georgetown. We had a great lunch there, just one, and then drove back to start getting ready to relocate once again. Plus Marvin wanted to get in another round of golf!

Tomorrow we’re taking the Northumberland Ferry to Nova Scotia. It takes an hour then we have a three hour drive to our next campground on Cape Breton Island at the northern end of Nova Scotia. Till next time.....from Nova Scotia!
