Jul 14, 2018 - Playing Mahjong and Attending Musical “Anne of Green Gables”

July 14 – Playing Mahjong and Attending Musical “Anne of Green Gables” Kathleen played mahjong in the afternoon with ladies on the caravan. After dining at a chowder house restaurant, we attended the musical show “Anne of Green Gables” that is the longest running show – 53 years. The show was amazing. We thought that it would be a small-town actor play but the cast was outstanding. Anne was special. We were glad the it was included in the tour even if we returned to our RV at 10:30 PM.

Jul 12, 2018 - Tour of Prince Edward Island

July 12 – Tour of Prince Edward Island We boarded the bus for a guided tour of PEI which included walking the rust colored shoreline of Cavendish Beach and touring Charlottetown. We also walked through Green Gables that site that inspired L. M. Montgomery to create a tale Anne of Green Gables. The island is made up of mostly agricultural land for potatoes, barley, soybeans and hay. Producing 1.2 million tons, it is third in the production of potatoes below Idaho and Washington and the largest in Canada. There are 143,000 residents on the...

Jun 25, 2018 - Charlottetown, PEI

June 22nd Another stunning start to the day with not a cloud in the sky. We pack up the van in preparation to leave when I hear a large groan from Bill. It seems that the butter tart did not agree with Bowie after all and sometime during the night he managed to barf it all down the inside passenger door of the van. Quite a mess! Once again we meandered the back roads of PEI (the Island is only 200 kms long and in some places only 4 kms wide so we travel very slowly to stretch this trip out for 5 nights). Stopped at some craft type shops;...

Oct 2, 2017 - Charlottetown - Anne of Green Gables

2/10/2017. Monday. Charlottestown A more leisurely start this morning as we began the day with a Prince Edward Island local tour guide, who was very knowledgeable, funny, and posed the question 'what is a crocheted cow'. Throughout the day, she offered tiny clues, and people put forth answers. More about that later. She took us to PEI National Park beaches and rusty/red coloured cliffs, which are eroding 1'/30cm per year off the coastline. It was only 11 degrees today with a very strong wind, but the sand didn't blow up like it does at...

Oct 1, 2017 - Moncton to Charlottetown

1/10/2017. Sunday. Charlottestown, PE Island Again, our early start paid off, as we were the first bus at Hopewell Rocks, which have a rise and fall of 16 metres, the highest and wildest tides in the world. We heard an excellent talk before going to the rocks, were the tide was on its way out, which meant that people could walk down the 100 steps and stand on the ocean floor. I had thought I'd like to do that just to say I'd done it, but then thought that we do it every time we go swimming in the ocean, and that my knees probably wouldn't...

Jul 26, 2017 - Charlottetown, PEI.

We drove 40 miles to The Confederation Bridge and across to Prince Edward Island (PEI). Once across we stop at Borden-Carlton Village, which is a Gift Shop and information area for PEI. Got some maps and books on what to see and do in a day and we were off. After some driving and a few turn arounds, we discovered 2 things. PEI is very rural and the maps they give you do not have the same number roads on them. Fortunately our phones are working up here. The island is all about farming, mostly potatoes. About 1/3 of the island is tillable...

Jun 8, 2017 - June 8-9

June 8 A lovely sunny day. We headed for Green Gables House in Cavendish. We passed through beautiful countryside of rolling hills, fields and farms. There was hardly any traffic and when we arrived at the site, there were not many people. Again, it is an advantage to be early in the season to avoid crowds. We took lots of photos of the Green Gables house, which was actually the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery's grandfather's cousins, and the surrounding countryside. We offered to take a photo of a mother and her two adult daughters in front...

Jun 7, 2017 - June 6 - 7

June 7 We were out the door at 5:30am and were treated to a lovely sunrise as we drove to the airport. Bidding Cheryl a fond farewell, we dropped her off at 6:00 at the Departures door, then set out for the P.E.I. ferry. There was almost no traffic, so the journey was easy. At the ferry, we didn't have to pay - we will pay $70 for the return trip or $40 if we go back via the Confederation Bridge. Free to visit, pay to leav. We were in line by 7:30, in time to have a cup of coffee before boarding for the 8:00 departure. The day was sunny and...

Jun 6, 2017 - Round the South East

We were up a bit later today and had breakfast before setting off to explore the Southeast area of Prince Edward Island. We drove directly to Georgetown and spent a while at the docks watching fishing boats come in and at a memorial park. We continued in a south-westerly direction to Montague where we had a light lunch and did a little shopping before exploring the waterfront then continued on round the coast stopping at a few places. Panmure lighthouse was interesting with views across Northumberland strait to Nova Scotia, the at Graham...

Jun 5, 2017 - Changed Plans - A Cold Damp Day

We had breakfast in a much quieter space today. The soccer and basketball teams had left and there were only a few of us in the motel restaurant. The weather was not co-operating and it was extremely cold with a slight drizzle. We decided to abandon plans to explore the eastern part of the island and instead go to the Cows Creamery where there is an ice cream manufacturer. We got ready and drove the short distance to the creamery. There was a short video and you could see the workers making the ice-cream. While it was interesting seeing...

Jun 4, 2017 - Churches, Bridges and Dinner

We got ready and had breakfast at the motel then went to Grace Baptist Church which is not far from where we are staying. It was well attended and several people spoke to us and made us feel welcome. By our standards, it was quite a long service - over two hours. The pastor gave a good message and the singing was enthusiastic, though we did not know many of the songs. We came back to the motel and had a light lunch then set off west of here to try and find a place where we could get a good view of the Confederation Bridge. We had been...
