Jul 22, 2017 - from wool to glass

Before we began the Points East Coastal Drive we had one stop to make – Belfast Mini Mills. Betty had done some research and discovered this wool factory that she wanted to see. So off we went with Wayne and Rudi in tow – not exactly their area of interest but they didn’t have anything else to do! Turns out that it is an amazing endeavour, built by a grandfather & grandmother, handed off to Mom and Dad and is now being run by grandchildren and great grandchildren. Years ago Grandma decided they should build a machine capable of washing,...

Aug 20, 2016 - Day 38/Day 39

2 drive days as we were scheduled to be on the ferry to Iles de Madeleine on Thursday afternoon. We did however take a few short stops on the second day and visited Potato World in Florenceville, NB, located in the heart of Potato country – the largest producers of potatoes. Then we stopped in Hartland, NB which have the longest functional covered bridge, we drove over the bridge and it was quite neat. At the end of the day we travelled across the Confederation Bridge an amazing structure that connects New Brunswick to PEI, unbelievable how...

Aug 20, 2016 - Day 40/Day 41( Iles de madelaine)

Day 40 Off to Iles de Madelaine, the ferry ride is about 5 hours long. We will only be taking our bikes as the mode of transportation, so hopefully the weather will cooperate. The ocean was a little rough but the ferry ride was great could hardly feel anything. We got into the ferry terminal and had a 5KM bike ride to our B&B. A man on the ferry told us it should be easy as the islands are fairly flat, not so much as Rian exclaimed biking up to steep hills. Once we arrived at the B&B, we just relaxed and caught up on the Olympics. Day...

We continued to explore the East End from Montague to Rolo Bay. Montague had a colorful harbor and had a MacDonalds where you could get a MacLobster sandwich (we did not try it) and a house that had Snowwhite and 7 Dwarfs planted in a flower garden. We stopped by the Brudenell River Provincial Park where there is a golf club with two championship golf course, one hosted the Legends of Golf tournament. We drove through a lot of quaint towns - Avandale, Cardigan and Georgetown to name a few. In Rolo Bay we stopped by The Myriad View Strait...

Sep 5, 2006 - Foggy Morning

A foggy, misty morning. Drove to the East Point lighthouse, then down to Montague (a cute town), then to Brudenell Provincial Park which has two championship golf courses in it. Decided that weather was not condusive to staying much longer in PEI. Plus we are beginning to feel that if we don't get off the island soon, everything is just going to close around us.

Aug 18, 2006 - Red Point, PEI

Left Halifax after a couple of nights and headed northwest towards Caribou where we'd take the ferry to Prince Edward Island (a seperate province). To make time we took the main highway. On the way Leo tells me she's just seen a guy with green hair on a unicycle going flat out in the centre lane on the other side of the highway. I didn't see him and would have been inclined not to believe her if it wasn't so silly it had to be true. Sure enough 30 minutes later, a traffic report came on the radio telling drivers to beware a "green haired...

The people who live in this part of the island are predominantly the descendants of early Scottish settlers. Its special attractions include red and white sandbanks, photogenic lighthouses and North Lake Harbour, which prides itself on being ’the tuna fishing capital of the world.
