Aug 15, 2019 - Days 1 and 2 on PEI

We spent our first day on PEI exploring the outer shores of the north section of the island. Lots of pretty scenery. The entire island is basically a red clay rock. The sand, dirt, mountains,everything is red. Lots of historical light houses, fishing villages, and very interesting little country towns. The island is almost all about fishing and farming. All kinds of farming. They grow primarily potatoes here but there is also large fields of wheat, canola, corn, barley, and a few others that I couldn't identify. The temperatures are pretty...

Aug 11, 2019 - Lots of Widshield Time Driving to PEI

After four days of hard driving we have finally arrived in Prince Edward Island. (PEI) Driving through the provinces of Toronto, Quebec, and New Brunsick was no picnic. The roads were bad as we expected, the scenery was only moderately interesting, and the weather wasn't great. Lots of rain. We didn't have high expectations for this leg of the trip so we really weren't disappointed. We traveled through the cities of Sault Ste Marie, Ottowa, Montreal and Quebec City. Even though our interstate system in the states is not in a great state of...

Jun 21, 2019 - Cavendish

Woke up to a blustery day on the coast and it stayed that way all day long. 55 degrees, rainy and limited views. Too bad as the drive from the north coast toward Cavendish has lots of beautiful views. We are camped at the PEI national cg and have an ocean view which is probably awesome if we could see it. We drove up to North Rustico harbour where we bought more oysters and a pound of mussels. At least the seafood up here is excellent!

Jun 19, 2019 - Anne Shirley

As I began my stroll today down lover’s lane, I imagined to myself what it must have felt like as Anne Shirley strolled down the lane. The picturesque scene before my eyes was so tranquil. I strolled along listening to the sweet songs of the birds flying around & over head. I heard a scattering nearby my feet, there searching for food was a small red squirrel. I stopped to listen to the laughter of the babbling brook. It’s a place where one can certainly lose themselves to the outside world’s daily trouble & turmoil. Everyone needs a place...

Jun 18, 2019 - Cow's Ice Cream!

So today we went down to the Cow’s Creamery boardwalk to have what we’ve been told to try the best ice cream ever made. Paul & I shared the peanut butter cup/cup with chocolate flakes. There is no comparison to Whitt’s. Nope, none at all, but that’s our opinion. After that we came back to the bus to get Rupert. We thought we’d drive along the coast which was somewhat of a disappointment. There were lots of foliage along the road between us & the ocean therefore we couldn’t really see the ocean & we wanted to find a beach that we could walk...

Jun 17, 2019 - PEI

We’re here!! We made it to Prince Edward Island today at 2:45pm. It was a beautiful drive. The lupins grow wild along the road side & are just beautiful! The sun was shining & temps in the low 70’s. We quickly set up came & invited Dick & Judy to go with us for a short drive to the Avonlea Village. (home town of Anne of Green Gables). We have been told my the young tour guide of the generation station that Cavendish is the home also of Cow ice cream the best ice cream ever. There is a Cow located in the Avonlea Village, so we thought we had...

Jun 11, 2019 - Moncton, NB and Prince Edward Island

Tuesday, June 11 We got going before 8 am and drove to downtown Moncton, NB.  We stopped at an information place and found that it didn't open until 10.  Headed back to camper and a staff member from the attached museum had tracked us down and let us in.  He shared lots of info and we picked up some maps and brochures. It was soooooo nice of him! When we got to the downtown area, we stopped at another info center to get info on exact times the Bore Tide comes in.  Yesterday we were told it would come in about 12:45. Unfortunately it came in...

Sep 15, 2018 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

September 15, 2018 Last night as we were looking ahead, we realized it didn’t make sense to go to Halifax and then to Digby to take an expensive ($326) ferry to St, John, NS. We have spent quite a bit of time in Halifax (where the camping is not as comfortable as we would like) and had the experience of the ferry. On top of that, we have a free night in this wonderful camp, promise of glorious weather and an opportunity to visit Charlottetown. Done! We booked a third night. As promised, the weather is wonderful and even a bit warmer than...

Sep 14, 2018 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

September 14, 2018 Hard to believe we have been gone 30 days and driven 5,000 miles! For the most part our Canadian camping experience has been quite good. Bob continues to be pissed about having to pay $.25 for a shower minute (sometimes 2 minutes). I don’t think it is about the money rather getting people to limit their shower time. Perfect fall day and we are taking it easy. We drove to the main Cavendish beach which is within the PEI National Park and didn’t have to pay entrance as the season is over. There were a number of people who...

Sep 13, 2018 - Shediac, NB to Cavendish Prince Edward Island

September 13, 2018 The folks at camp could not have been more attentive. They even brought us some firewood. The fog had burned off and it was a lovely sunny evening. After dinner we took a walk until we could see no longer and then sat by the fire. I am allergic to mosquito bites and am very careful to spray and cover up. The problem is that one bite will cause bites I got weeks earlier to flare up again. Last night I got one bite and all my KC bites swelled and started to itch again!!! Good thing I have lots of anti-itch cream and Zyrtec...

Jul 6, 2018 - Anne of Green Gables

Fri., July 6th – We're scratching the rough trip of yesterday from the memory bank, but as they say….”the sun will shine again”…well, maybe we had cloudy skies and a few thunderstorms to deal with today, but we were still glad to be tooling around this place without our homes in tow. We visited the home that inspired L.M. Montgomery to write the awesome “Anne of Green Gables” series. Sure wish I had my Viviana with me. She has read many of the novels about this imaginative, red-headed girl from Cavendish. From there we walked to the beach...

Sep 27, 2017 - PEI & Cape Breton Island

On to Prince Edward Island, the smallest of our provinces. As a matter of fact, one person I spoke with said they shouldn't even be a province. The total population is 140,000 and it only has an area of 5,600 sq kms.(2162 sq. miles) That being said, we loved PEI. It is slow-paced, laid-back and very uncrowded. The perfect weather we had when we were there may have influenced our experience. We got there by crossing the Confederation Bridge - an engineering masterpiece. It is 13 Kms long over the Northumberland Strait. It was built in...
