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!
