Nova Scotia Fall 2007 travel blog

PEI is really a farm country - much like upstate New York...

Mushrooms near our camp site

The next day was dark and stormy. We dressed for the beach...

The beaches are famous for their red sand and rocks

Waves beating on the shore

We hadn't seen such powerful waves on much of the trip

The gulls were having fun soaring

There is a long stretch of shore across from our campground.

Al and Blair (Parks Canada workers) let me use their cell phone...

We decided to dine at the world famous "Fisherman's Warf" in North...

The lobster dinner came with the entire salad bar (coffee & dessert...

We enjoyed our feast. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, on Monday, October 8.

This rugged scene was on the way back to camp

Finally, we arrived at the wild north shore of Prince Edward Island, where the sand dunes and crashing waves are spectacular. We stayed at the National Park campground near the beach, but the wind was so fierce, and the tide and waves so high, that we could only look at the beach from the dunes. The blowing sand pelted us as the light changed rapidly with the fast moving clouds giving an almost infinite number of photographic opportunities. There were only a few campers, and the park closed on Monday for the season - we have begun to feel that we are closing down the campgrounds as we leave!

Sunday, Oct. 7

Sunday was blustery and cold, so we enjoyed the coziness of the RV, but we ventured out for a PEI tradition that evening - a lobster supper. These originated as church suppers, but have become commercialized. The Fisherman's Wharf Lobster Supper in North Rustico that we attended was wonderful. You buy tickets at the door so your server knows what you are ordering. We started off with a 60-foot long salad bar, followed by the perfectly cooked lobster (in sea water) and topped off with dessert. Excellent!
