Jul 29, 2013 - Prince Edward Island

I wish had the words to describe how incredibly beautiful Prince Edward Island is. The word that kept coming to mind as we rode the country roads today was pastoral and that certainly fits; it is rural, peaceful looking, green, leisurely seeming, relaxing, and bucolic. We felt that we had gone back in time, to a much slower moving era. It is known as the Gentle Island and the name really suits. PEI is located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and is separated from New Brunswick by the Northumberland Strait and connected by the 8 mile long...

Jul 28, 2013 - Cavendish, PEI

We pulled out of Inch Arran Campground at 10:00 and headed south on route 11 along the eastern edge of New Brunswick. We drove through rain most of the way as we cut south on route 8, rejoined route 11, and then headed east on 15 to the Confederation Bridge. This was the second time that we have crossed the 8-mile long structure that spans the Northumberland Strait from NB to PEI. The last time was in the opposite direction nine years ago. This was a better direction because tolls are only collected when entering the bridge from the PEI...

Aug 30, 2012 - All about Anne...

Chuck, Steve & Matt dropped off Kristy, Becca and Eden in Cavendish, PE at Anne of Green Gables Heritage Site (Parks Canada), and left for C-town, to fix the bicycle tire and do errands. When the gals were done checking out the original Green Gables house, with its gardens, barn and the “Haunted Woods” and “Lovers Lane” paths, they headed (on foot) down the road to the Village of Avonlea, arriving a little after 2:30 pm. The girls enjoyed seeing the actors in character, and Becca particularly enjoyed the horses - what a surprise! She...

Aug 29, 2012 - Cavendish, PEI

One of the first things we noticed in the touristy area of Cavendish was an amusement park area across the street from a large campground – and in front of the campground was something called a "Bobble” ride – which looked like a bunch of clear hamster balls in/on a pool of water… it looked like a lot of fun, and even though it was a bit pricey at $8 for 6 minutes, we went for it – and the kids had a blast! The campsite at the national park was just inside a wooded area – miles of coastline, red cliffs & dunes, beautiful – Steven made...

Aug 25, 2012 - Day 41 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

We started the day by driving to the western most point of PEI. This is where the waters of the Strait meet the Gulf of St Lawrence and also location for the Wind Farm Research Center and Interpretive Centre. The waters were calm but the windmills were turning. Very similar to windmills along #1 highway in Saskatchewan. We then drove to Cavendish KOA to explore the Green Gables area. It is not far from where we spent the night at Twin Shores Campground. We arrived about 2 in afternoon so did not go to Avonlea as it is open only 10-5 each...

The Wandering Nunns

Jul 26, 2012 - CAVENDISH, PEI

We drove into Charlottetown to check on taking one of the boat tours. After finding out the tour we wanted was about 25 miles north of Charlottetown, we reserved our tickets, grabbed a great lunch downtown Charlottetown at Fishbones. Jim and I ordered 1/2 doz. fresh oysters. They were so good. Had a great mango/jalapeno sauce for the oysters. Then we split a lobster club sandwich. Our boat tour was in Cavendish, PEI, up on the northern shore about 25 minute drive. A beautiful area! Our tour was 2 hours out on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Our...

Sep 6, 2011 - PEI-PEI National Park

Prince Edward Island - serene, beautiful, so green, relaxing, richly hued landscapes of blue seas, henna-colored cliffs, purple and yellow flowers everywhere, green fields that make one pause, breath deeply and admire nature. Absolutely our favorite of the maritimes we visited this trip. We took a day trip over to the northern central coast to see PEI National Park and visit some of the small towns in the area. The park itself is a skinny 25 mile long stretch along the water. It is nature untouched - so clean, so beautiful - with the waters...

Prince Edward Island Aug 18-20th We had heard that the water of the Atlantic Ocean was the warmest right near where we spent the night in Shediac, so we had to go for an early morning swim. If that was what they call warm water, I hate to fell the cold! To top off our warm water experience we had an ice-cold water out door shower to wash the salt off and wash our hair. This was all before 9 am; it’s the Maritimes, it plays havoc with the brain. We took a back road to the Confederation Bridge, so we got a good look at it before we drove...

Aug 16, 2011 - Green Gables, A View to Sea and the Knotty Hooker

This is the heart of Green Gables country, the famous books that were written by Lucy Maud Montgomery about Anne and her life on Prince Edward Island in the 1910 time period. Susan has always enjoyed the stories and this is the second time that she has visited this special area. On Sunday, Susan, Andrea, Brenda and Connie went to Green Gables and spent the day. They had a great time and the weather was sunny and cool. The day at Green Gables included a fashion show for 1908, meeting all the characters in the books--all the actors acted...

Aug 7, 2011 - Day 27: Green Gables Shore Drive

This morning we drove up the highway to Green Gables. I finished my first Anne of Green Gables book yesterday and have started on the second. The site included a film about the author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, that was very information. Then we toured the Green Gables house. I got a souvenir booklet for BT so she can share it with the students at FoJo. Our next stop was at Rustico Harbor. There’s a museum there that deals with lobster fishing. The video was not professional but it certainly have a lot of information. A lobster fisherman will...

Aug 1, 2011 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Last day on tour. Went fishing this morning, caught 20 mackerel and 5 cod. Went home and slept. Tonight was our farewell dinner. Most people had lobster but I had steak. Tomorrow we reenter the USA. Our plans are to visit friends in Sanford, Maine for two days and then head straight for Laurel, Montana to visit with Jim and Jeanette for a couple of weeks.
