Jul 29, 2011 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Today we drove from North Sydney to Cavendish, Prince Edward Island (PEI). On the way here we drove over a 7 mile long bridge. It was free to get on PEI but it is going to cost $57 to take the bridge off the island. On the way we stopped for ice cream when we got to PEI. Once here we had our first and only pot luck supper. The weather is still good and bad. One moment it is sunny and the next it is cloudy and raining. We will stay here 4 nights and then we are done. We are going to then drive to Sanford, Maine and visit Ray and Cece again....

Jul 16, 2011 - Cavendish Prince Edward Island Canada

On our way back to Marco Polo Land RV Park, we drove through PEI’s Canadian National park, a beautiful drive along the Bay of St. Lawrence. We saw some beautiful scenery and we saw our second and third fox. The first one was just laying on the walk way and really didn’t move when four people walked by. As we were leaving the park, we decided to stop at the last turnout and here was a fox walking along the road. We saw another beautiful sunset, the last three days have produced some very spectacular ones. We will however be glad to leave...

Jul 12, 2011 - Cavendish Prince Edward Island Canada

We drove to Cavendish Prince Edward Island, we had to cross the Confederation Bridge, a bridge that is 12.9 km long (8 miles) and is about 300 feet high. As most of you know Reggi is afraid of heights and when she saw the bridge, she was not a happy camper; however, she did very well as we made our way from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island. We are staying at Marco Polo Land RV park where Jimmie & Jeanine (who we brought our RV from) and Kay Pihl’s brother stayed 14 and 11 years ago respectively. Once here we drove to North Rustico, a...

Jun 23, 2011 - Bike ride along the coast

On our final day on PEI, the weather looked good so we decided to get the bikes out and ride along the coast from Cavendish. Riding along gives you a different perspective from driving in the car and is environmentally friendly. It was an enjoyable ride.

Jun 19, 2011 - Heading west from Cavandish

Our first day on the island saw us heading west from Cavendish. Our first stop was the west area of the Prince Edward Island National Park. Here we explored the dunes and looked at the stormy sea. Close to the lake of Shining Water we watched a pair of Canada Geese with their goslings. There was also a number of loons resting in a nearby tree. From there we continued along the coast exploring many of the typical inlets of PEI along with the inevitable potato fields and red soil. We also found a number of unusual churches. As the weather...

Sep 16, 2010 - Thursday Cavendish, PEI

Today we drove back to PEI National Park – this time without Darby as she is not allowed on the boardwalk. We saw the beaches, the red cliffs and the sand dunes. Again it rained all night – really hard and most of the morning. Then we drove over to a couple of the “tourist” stores where everything is 30 – 50% off. It’s the end of the season and most of the stores are getting ready to close until next summer. Next we drove to the Green Gables house. This is the house where Lucy spent much time as a child and that she used as a basis for the...

Sep 15, 2010 - Wednesday Cavendish, PEI

Bob got up early, early! He left the RV at 7:45am. Unfortunately, the crown did not just come off. The underlying tooth is broken, so the dentist could not just permanently glue the crown back on. Bob is going to need more work (like maybe a pin in the tooth) before a permanent crown can go back on. So he temporarily glued the crown back and Bob will eat very carefully until we get back to Jax. He struck up a conversation with the dental assistant and when she asked where we were camping and Bob replied at the KOA in Cavendish, she said...

Sep 14, 2010 - Tuesday Cavendish,PEI

In times past, one of the Island's largest export industries was the farming of foxes. Of course, nowadays, this is a frowned upon industry, and one which is essentially dead. It was not an industry that just anyone could go into. A breeding pair of black foxes cost anywhere from $12,000 to $20,000 in 1913. The days of abundant wealth and prominence have given way to hobby farms and fox shows that are maintained more out of tradition than for any profits. But as the expression sly as a fox suggests, these sly creatures sometimes escaped and...

The Trip of 2010

Sep 13, 2010 - Monday Cavendish, PEI

When we left North Sydney this morning, we’d plan to spend the night in Nova Scotia, but then Bob decided that he felt up to a longer drive and that we might as well drive on to Prince Edward Island today. We’d get in about 5:30 – well before dark. There are two ways to get to PEI – both are free. One is a one hour ferry ride and the other is an eight mile bridge. Neither appealed to Barb, and Bob did not mind the challenge of driving over the bridge and did not want to hassle with ferry schedules for just a one hour ride, especially when...

PEI is world famous for Anne of Green Gables the book series created by Lucy Maud Montgomery. The Cavendish area is full of sites related to LMM and Anne of GG.

After that we went for lunch at an oyster bar. We sampled fresh oysters harvested in the morning, along with mussels and clams. The food was delicious. The afternoon was spent at...

We made it over the bridge. We left Parrsboro and arrived in Springhill, home of Canada's supreme diva Morna (Anne) Murrary. The museum was well set up and we learned alot about her life. She really was as big of a music star as Canada has had. She has lived quite a life and has won numerous awards. After leaving springhill he headed towrd PEI. The journey took us in the corner of NB and then over to the Confederation Bridge. The bridge is quite awe inspiring and was fun to cross. The view was amazing as you travel over the North Cumberland...
