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...

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...
