Aug 24, 2013 - Montague, PE

Saturday was our day to take the PEI East Coastal Trail. The day was very windy along the ocean, but the sun was out to show the beauty of this island. As we headed to the East Point lighthouse in the northeast corner of the island, we took several side-trips to quaint fishing villages, and enjoyed talking to a few fishermen and learning about their mussel harvests, mackrel and tuna fishing. After visiting the lighthouse, we headed southeast where our next stop being the "Singing Sands Beach". The sands weren't singing that day, but it was...

Aug 23, 2013 - Cavendish, PE

Friday's original plan was to visit the various beaches in the national park, but, as forecast, we awoke to very cloudy skies and drizzles and cool enough to require jeans and sweatshirt. We spent most of the morning at the motel, and then drove about an hour east to the edge of the national park to the Greenwich interpretive center. This was definitely worthwhile. They have a theater with surround pictures - on floor as well as walls - making it fascinating to watch their video about the history of PEI. We didn't take the boardwalk to the...

Jul 28, 2012 - Checking Our East Pei

Today we were off to discover eastern PEI. Another beautiful drive. Unbelievable to see the large fields of potatoes, oats and wheat right on the oceans edge. First stop was Montague, PEI. Nice little marina. Had a cup of coffee and some cookies we bought at the bakery. Got information on Roma, just around the cove. It was a 1830's settlement that had been reconstructed and guides were dressed in period clothing. Very interesting. We took the short walk to the point and the view over the bay was awesome. From there we drove a short...

Jul 24, 2011 - Montegue via Scenic Shore drive

We spent the day traveling the eastern side of PEI along the scenic shore drive. Our first stop was at Cape Bear. The light house is no longer in use, it is now a museum to the Marconi station that received the first distress signal from the Titanic. We then continued along the drive to Murray head and Murray harbour, beautiful and are filled with wonderful views. As we went from Murray Harbour to North Murray Harbour we drove through Murray River, here we found the worlds longest Golf bridge, it is used to get from one side of the pond to...

Sep 14, 2010 - Montague, PEI - Lane's Cottages & Suites

Our trip from Pictou, NS to Montague, PEI took us 6.5 hours to cover the 37 miles of which 21 was driving and 16 was riding the ferry. We got bushwhacked in the campground by the caravan! Just as we were getting ready to pull out and hook up Libby, here they came, all 26 of them. This was about 6:15 in the morning. Since they were driving by right in front of us, we couldn't get out to hook up. We finally got out of the campground just before 7:00 a.m. but there were 26 RVs in front of us in line at the ferry landing. We missed the 8:00...

Sep 8, 2008 - Day 97 to Day 99

Day 97, Sept 5, Today’s Plan; Go to PEI. We are not as early starting as we had hoped. We seem to have a chronic problem with starting on time. We do get going and are breaking camp when a fellow walking down the road looks at the truck license and asks were in BC we are from. I tell him. He says he’s from Campbell River, too. We shake hands and exchange names and chat for minute. We are trying to find some common ground, when Lorna comes along. I introduce her and Don goes to get his wife. Does anyone in Campbell River know the Johnsons,...

Jul 22, 2008 - Pit Stop in .....

IT’S NOT RAINING – YES!!! First to Tim Horton’s for a coffee and then make my way east, an uneventful ride to Confederation Bridge that spans between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Isle. It’s a long bridge but only two lanes which is OK as there is no traffic. I exit to the visitors centre and wow, this is the most touristy I have seen so far. There are even teenager girl dancers doing their thing. Well, the only real industry here is Tourism so it’s a bit of a love-hate relationship. First to the capital Charlottetown and its busy,...

Jun 23, 2008 - Still near Murray Harbour

Monday June 23…10:45pm We needed to get some paperwork finished up for Alex’s new school. He’s going to Plattsburgh University in the fall, and it’s kind of tough getting everything done with us being on the road, and him being in Tennessee just now. Oh well, we do what we gotta do! So we drove into Montague (about 20km’s) and used the internet and the post office. We were waiting to hear from another couchsurfing host who lives near Montague, and when we got her email, it turned out that she lives just down the road from where we had spent...

Sep 1, 2007 - Panmure Island

Well, problems continue to plague us. The cooler that we bought to keep the refrigerator stuff cold leaked all over the rug in the coach. The rug was so wet that it actually squished. The plug of the cooler was closed but unfortunately not properly sealed and it leaked around the spout. So....the first thing we had to do was get the chamois cloths and try to get up as much of the wet as we could. Then, we took our space heater and the extra fans we carry and put them on to try and dry the rug. What a mess. Of course, Bob had to try and...

Aug 31, 2007 - The Day from Hell

Well, it was bound to happen. Today/last night was the day/night from hell. Our refrigerator inside the coach croaked. Needless to say, we were unable to find anyone to even look at it - all anyone would say was: "take it out and turn it upside down for 24 hours". Needless to say, that is much easier said than done especially since they put the refrigerator in before they put the doors in. We think you would have to actually take it out through the window. So that is out of the question and probably not a good idea anyway. It is not...
