Sep 1, 2006 - PEI

The road to Anne of Green Gables. The scenery of PEI is certainly as we expected and more. The red soil and farmland to the ocean's edge were postcard perfect. We spent a day in the Cavendish area touring everything that is L.M. Montgomery; a much revered figure on PEI. A tour of the potato museum in O'Leary was also in order as this represents another large part of the rural economy on PEI. The next day took us to Charlottetown where we took in the Founders Hall museum and toured Province house. The presentation on Confederation brought...

Aug 29, 2006 - Move to Cymbria RV Park north of Charlottetown, PEI

We forgot to mention in our last update that on Saturday night we went to the Louisbourg Playhouse to hear Lyrics & Laughter, was a very good group which played, sang and danced to Cape Breton music. The fiddler was one of the best ones we have ever heard. We moved to the Cymbria RV park which is only about 20 miles north of Charlottetown. Not far, but really close to the National Park. We were going to move to one of the National Park campgrounds, but it had already closed. We are beginning to realize that things close here shortly after...

Aug 26, 2006 - Louisbourg to Pictou and Ferry to PEI

Drove to Pictou to catch the ferry to Prince Edward Island. Drove north to Charlottetown to Pine Hills RV park. The interesting thing we found about this park was that there are many local families who spend the summer here that only live a few miles away. But they park their trailers here and use the facilities in the summer as if it were a country club. This makes it a little too busy with kids for us, but OK for a couple of days.

Aug 23, 2006 - Day 52 Charlottetown, PEI

Day 52 - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Well, this is our last day of our trip. We have traveled 2,977 miles in our coach plus all the touring around in our car. Tomorrow we will all leave together and probably stay together until we get across the border where we will all go our merry way. It is hard to tell everything we have seen and done in our 52 days. We have been in so many types of surroundings, with a full measure of mountains, ponds, hills winding around and up and down. We finished our day by going into town to the harbor...

Aug 22, 2006 - Day 51 Charlotetown, PEI

Day 51 - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Today everyone was on their own with all of us going to the Wharf for our lobster meal in the evening. Couldn't leave PEI without lobster for which it is well known, and we can attest to the fact that they are good. Some of our people got the Lazy Man's Lobster (already out of the shell) and three of us got the real thing. Went downtown for our dessert of ice cream at "Cows". Several of our group went to Cavandish and visited the home of Anne of Green Gables. Woodleigh Replicas and Gardens which...

Aug 20, 2006 - Charlottetown PEI

August 20/06 It rained during the night and into the morning, we moved to the Wal Mart in Charlottetown. Then we went to the information center and looked around Peake's Quay and found out that there was a performance tonight by a group called the Knot. They were very good and lots of talent playing an electric mix of Celtic, folk, world, jazz and classical music. August 21/06 Today it is raining very hard so we are having a lazy morning. Rain has stopped so went to the Province House to see the historical reenactment of the first meeting...

Aug 19, 2006 - PEI National Park

Drove west to St Peters, famous for its mussels, so we bought a 2lb bag for the measly sum of C$3 plus a couple pieces of fresh sole from the local fishmart. Travelled onto a campground within PEI National Park, which protects the red sand beaches of the northern shore of PEI. After setting up camp, we checked out the beach - water was chilly and you had to be careful not to step on the large crabs but good swimming nevertheless. After that we cooked up a seafood feast over the campfire, the mussels for a starter (delicious) and steamed...

Aug 11, 2006 - Bouctouche to PEI

267 km travelled today. Came across the Confederation Bridge into PEI. Very nice visitor information centre on the PEI side off the bridge. A must stop for coffee and to pickup pamphlets on what you want to see and do. We travelled to the north side of the island, Brackley Bay, and stayed at the Vacation Land RV park. We then started touring. Highlights today were The Dunes Studio Gallery-a must see, and the PEI National park. We picked up some scallops, fresh from the wharf, and wrapped up the day with supper and a fire at Barry and Sylvias.

Jul 28, 2006 - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

We took the ferry from Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island (PEI), the smallest Canadian province. It is a lovely pastoral island, with a relaxed lifestyle. We visited Charlottetown, enjoying the lovely old fashioned wooden houses and flower gardens as usual. We then drove to the north of the island, and to the PEI National Park where we camped. The national park is basically a long strip of coast with dunes and dune lakes. We had a relaxing afternoon on the campsite, enjoying the sun and the scent of the trees. In the evening, we went to a...

Jul 25, 2006 - Prince Edward Island - PEI

We arrived at the campground in PEI around 4 pm. We crossed a nine mile long bridge from the New Brunswick mainland to the island. We didn't pay a toll to get here, but it will be at least $40.50 to get off the island. The base toll is for a two axle vehicle and then you add $6.75 per additional axle. Everything is very pretty and well maintained. The main industry on PEI is agriculture. There are potato, wheat and barley fields everywhere. They also raise lots of vegetable crops. Tourism is a close second to agriculture, followed by...

Jul 22, 2006 - PEI

PEI Day 1 Our tour bus picked us up this morning under cloudy skies, but without the forecast rain. Our first stop was about a mile away at the National Park - Green Gables. PEI would probably be a remote sparsely populated farming island without the publicity it got from Lucy Maude Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables book. That book, and the 12 others she wrote with a settings in the Cavendish area, have made this a destination tourist location. The Canadian government has bought much of the area around Cavendish for the park and the...
