Jun 18, 2017 - Prince Edward Island

Click on thumbnails to enlarge/run slideshow One of the places I wanted to see on this trip was Prince Edward Island. Sharon and I tried to visit it 15-20 yrs ago and got to Halifax where we both got very sick. Without Canadian medical insurance coverage, we hightailed it back to Maine and never did get back. So I left the Sydney/Cape Breton area and headed northwesterly towards PEI. You can only get on and off the island via a 1.5 hr ferry ride from Nova Scotia to Woods Islands on the southwesterly side of PEI or via the 7 mile...

Jun 7, 2015 - Prince Edward Island, Points East Coast - May 2015

We headed for Campbell’s Cove RV Park at the far east end of PEI. The park sits adjacent to Campbell’s Cove Provincial Park. The park was a disappointment. Soft, lumpy ground, 20 amp and no wifi. It did not help that it is a grey, windy, cold day. This end of the island is remote, and I had envisioned being on the beach, going for walks and reading books. Alas, the weather gods were not in our favor. It was scheduled to be windy, cold and rainy for the next 3 days. We decided to moved on to our next planned stop closer to the Charlottetown...

Sep 2, 2012 - And leaving the Island again...

We camped overnight at Seal Cove Campground (North Murray Harbour, PE) (beautiful campground, BTW, and on calm nights you can hear the seals barking...), and this morning (besides updating the journal - making good use of the quiet time between when Mayzie woke up to go out and when the kids did) when we leave, we will be setting out for the ferry ride to NS. Since we do not know whether we will have showers available tomorrow morning, everyone needs to get that done today. Tomorrow should be an adventure to cap off our trip - Tidal Bore...

Jul 22, 2009 - PEI

After arriving on the Island we decide to go and get some food at restaurant. The guide book tells of some down towards Murray River. We drive on into the night. It is not late, about 10ish but the Island is deserted. There are no cars around and we miss the restaurant as it is in darkness. We pull up at a gas station to ask if there is any hot food available, but they have nothing that we don’t already have within the truck and would have to cook anyway. The gas station closes at 11 and they are happy for us to park up for the night,...

Jun 22, 2008 - Near Murray Harbour, PEI

Sunday June 22…10:15pm So we got onto the 9:30am ferry to PEI this morning. We were the only RV to get on, and there weren’t many other vehicles either. We read later that the ferry holds 155 cars on 2 levels. On our crossing, the upper level was totally empty, and there were maybe 25 other vehicles along with us on the lower deck. When we exited the ferry, the first thing we needed was a gas station. Our GPS unit had told us there was one about a mile on, and we drove right there. But when the GPS said “arriving at destination on right”,...

Jul 30, 2005 - The Hopewell Rocks & PEI For The Night

As we had been travelling hard for awhile and our plan this day was to visit the Hopewell Rocks at low tide (checking the schedule told me that low tide would occure at 1:00pm), so I let the wee boys have a lie in. I made a lovely cup of coffee for myself and whipped up a batch of porridge, yum. It was nice to have a slow morning for a change and the boys really like it at this campsite and are reluctant to leave. It's one of the challenging things about this trip is that we can never stay more than one night in any campsite. We all wish we...
