Jul 24, 2009 - What price?

Here we find in town there is a WalMart. Here we find a “crossbows & catapaults” game. It is marked up as $55 but there are reduced stickers around that hint that it might be $19. On checking the price at the till we find it is $5 and the girl on the counter asks, "do we still want it?" go figure. Everytime we have bought something from WalMart there has been a price difference somewhere. What with prices not showing taxes, prices out of date, you might as well just make it up. We then popped over to Pizza Delight for tea. Here one of the...

Jul 19, 2009 - P.E.I. July-13-19, 2009

On Monday we went into Moncton and had haircuts and did some shopping. We were waiting around to watch the tidal bore from the Bay of Fundy. At 2:15 we went to downtown Moncton at the visitors information bureau and found a seat in the amphitheatre facing the river. A very personable young lady from the Moncton Museum gave an interesting talk on the history of the river and the area. At 2:55 the tide was suppose to come in and we waited, and waited and finally we noticed this little ripple on the water…this was the tidal bore. Apparently...

Jul 14, 2009 - East Coastal Drive, PEI

Well today we headed off to do the East Coastal Drive. We thought we would head up to Georgetown first because they had in the tourist book that there was a heritage walking tour with about 60 historic homes we could see. Well we headed up and I have to say the scenery was mostly of agricultural nature not as pretty as yesterday's scenery. Well we got to Georgetown and I have to say we were so disappointed the walking tour they walked about was around a five block area and yes there were a lot of homes but you were only to look on the...

Jul 13, 2009 - North Cape, PEI

Today we got up to thunder, rain and lightening (yes Trish lightening) so we took it easy and around 10:00 it started to clear up. We decided to drive up to North Cape. We said goodbye to our neighbors John & Mary as they were leaving for Pictou. Last night we enjoyed another nice evening with them chatting about the places they have travelled to. We are hoping to run into them again in either Pictou or Baddeck. We headed up to The Prince Edward Island Potato Museum which is located in the community of O'Leary. It is surrounded by fertile...

Jul 12, 2009 - Green Gables, Cavendish PEI

We have had two fantastic days of sunshine and we have been getting up early just to watch the sunrise. PEI is just beautiful. PEI seems to be divided into five sections North Cape Coastal Drive, Green Gables Shore, Red Sands Shore, Charlottetown and Points East Coastal Drive. Over the time period we are here we're going to try and see as much of the five sections that we can. We drove the Green Gables shore on Friday and stopped at Green Gables which is the site that they pay tribute to Lucy Maud Montgomery who wrote Green Gables. We...

Jul 9, 2009 - Hurray!!! Sunshine In PEI

We woke up to the greatest day today it was sunny and warm absolutely beautiful. We packed up and left St. Martins around 8:00 am and arrived at our campground in PEI at noon so it was a real short drive and very easy to get where we were going. We drove over the Confederation Bridge which joins New Brunswick with PEI. It is the longest (8 miles) bridge in the world that crosses over ice-covered water. They say it endures as one of Canada's top engineering achievements in the 20th Century. The bridge took four years of construction along...

Jul 9, 2009 - Summerside, PEI

Yesterday was one of our first sunny days we've had in six weeks so we just walked the beach and enjoyed it. We had two couples pull in beside us both of them are from British Columbia and one couple is on a four month trip around the Maritimes and the other couple are here for one month. It was nice to meet people from our own province. We had a nice campfire but by 8:00 pm it was just too cold to sit out there even with the fire so we all went back to our own units. Brian and I tied up and got some things ready to leave in the morning. We...

Sep 13, 2008 - Nova Scotia and PEI

Hi Everyone. We' had another busy 10 days or so. Drove to Louisbourg to visit the fortress. Very well recreated. Spent the whole day there then stopped at a seafood buffet for dinner that featured fresh snow crab. Delicious! the next day we went to a show featuring NS music, dance and comedy. At intermission they served tea and oatcakes on the mezzanine. Very good. The next day we hooked up and went across the island to Cape Breton to do the Cabot Trail. We camped at Baddeck. Unhooked and went into town to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum....

Jul 23, 2008 - Funny little place called

I say “Good Morning” at the breakfast table to a couple from Ontario, just north of Toronto. Interesting guy, he bought a place here and plans to retire in PEI. The place is lovely, only a whopping great $64,000! I say goodbye to Zita, a real woman if you know what I mean. Was (still is) married to a man who has passed on. She is quick to point out that he was a veteran and still ‘feel’s’. She is 85 and is young at heart if you know what I mean. I know kids of 25 and are old! I look into her eyes and see a presence – she will live to be...

JULY 4th We left Moncton N.B. around 8.30 we made a side trip to Cape de Pete a small small fishing village, there was a herring cannery which gave tours also sold smoked herring which Norm thought would be good, we went the way info center directed and found out that that we were at a lobster cannery and no tours so we went on our way without herring but enjoyed driving through the village. Crossing the Confederation bridge was another # 1 highlight of our trip what an experience.Once in P.E.I.we headed for the info center there were a...

May 1, 2008 - We are Home - BUT- Not Home.

I'm so sorry PEI! We obviously brought this weather along with us. All indications were that PEI was in the beginnings of spring. All the sights along the highway home were telling us that 'All is well'. But this is what we do to our friends and loved ones who we have missed so much. Bring them WINTER. God has said to Rita, Tom ........and HeyU, "This is what it's like. I gave you the most wonderful winter that you've ever had, given you the most wonderful new friends from all over. This IS what it's like , and don't you forget it!" Yes, my...

Sep 25, 2007 - Charlottetown to Summerside and side trips

Not much to say right now but thought I'd add pictures. We've toured Green Gables, the home of the famous Anne Shirley, visited the Bottle House and the Irish Moss Centre as well as the Potato Museum. All fun and fascinating but we're very tired. I'll let the pictures tell the story. We're off to cross the Confederation Bridge tomorrow back into Nova Scotia. It's 12.9 kms. long! Can you imagine? If the wind is too strong, they'll decide whether or not you can cross. Fortunately, today is a pleasant day and we're not expecting any problems.
