Sat., July 7th – We back-tracked to the Cavendish beaches today, but under picture perfect blue skies, the scenery was oh so much prettier. We took several pull-outs from the National Park to the Gulf of St. Lawrence coastline to snap pictures of the bright red cliffs and pinkish sandy beaches. We drove back through the rolling green hills and freshly planted potato farms toward the largest city and capital, Charlottetown. Along the way, we stopped at the Cows Creamery to try their world famous Canadian ice-cream and stroll through the Anne of Green Gables Chocolate shop where we watched them make their famous chocolate covered potato chips. They were quite pricey, but I had to buy some for the kids to try when we get home. Next stop was the Great George Heritage walk in downtown Charlottetown with a quick peek at the St. Dunstan’s Basilica, one of those ostentatious Gothic Catholic churches that’s an architectural marvel to behold. After dinner at the Canadian chain, Montana, we went to the Confederation Arts Center to see the longest running musical in the Guinness book of world records, Anne of Green Gables. In its 54th year, the lively dancing and spirited musical scores were truly an amazing retelling of this classic heart-warming story. It was a perfect ending to our last day on this magical island!
Sun., July 8th – Today was a travel day to Fredericton, New Brunswick. We’ll cross the border tomorrow.
