Aug 13, 2019 - Summerside, PEI

Aug. 13, 2019 - Drove from Moncton to Chrystal Beach Rv Park, just outside Summerside, PEI. Had a nice spot with a view of the ocean. After we got set up, drove through Cavendish and went to lobster dinner in New Glasglow. Had a nice lobster and mussel dinner with more than enough to eat. Drove back through Rustico. On the way home notice the Ross Family Ceilidh in Clinton Hills on Wednesday, so we bought some tickets for the 14. Aug. 14, 2019 - Drove up to OLeary and went to the Quilt Shop there. It was so supposed to have the largest...

Jun 19, 2019 - Linkletter prov park

Today wàs the most beautiful day, all sun and a nice breeze to keep the mosquitoes away! We ate fish and chips at Boss's in Summerside and then went to find Sunbury cove about 5 miles away. We drove down a dirt road and found Sunbury cove estate which is an exclusive development on the end of the road. Came back and cooked lobsters. Life doesn't get any better!

Jun 18, 2019 - PEI

We left NB and headed to Prince Edward island where we've never been. On the map it doesn't look very far away, but bumpy roads extend the journey. We only drove 150 miles but it took us 4 hours. We made it to the Confederation bridge which connects NB to PEI and must be 3-5 miles long. Found a seafood market in Summerside called Argenaults and bought lobsters, mussels and scallops all for about $35 US. Great deal for up here. Drove another 10 minutes to Linkletter park where we have a site right on the bay looking across at NB . Awesome...

Jun 19, 2018 - Summerside PEI

June 19th I thought it was time to provide you with some of the highlights for me on this trip because you become grateful for the small things in life such as clean showers that drain properly because they are actually sloped correctly, not spread water all over the floor where you stuff sits or worse the drain is clogged and the water starts to accumulate around your feet. Another highlight is illustrations of campsites and services that are accurate and not so out of date you become lost looking for the path to the sand spit with the...

Aug 2, 2017 - checkin' out the countryside

Wayne biked into pickleball this morning and found that it was pretty much uphill almost the whole way to town. DOH!!! Once downtown he used the Confederation Trail, built on the abandoned rail line, to scoot across town to the courts. This trail that runs the entire length of PEI is almost flat and avoids the busy downtown area roads. We still intend to bike some of the more scenic sections once Donna heals. A little better showing on the courts today and despite the hot sun and swirling winds - it was a great way to spend the morning....

Aug 1, 2017 - the serenading barber

Just as an FYI…………Wayne’s brother, Ian and his family, lived in Newfoundland for a few years and he kindly responded to our wonderings about the suspended front doors that grace many, many Newfoundland homes. “Yes, this is called a “mother in law” door. The mother in law comes in through the back door like everyone else but if necessary she leaves through the front door! Also the practice was to leave the front steps off as the house is then “unfinished” and so not subject to certain taxes. I favor the former but suspect it was because of...

Jul 31, 2017 - smaller version of our Victoria

Another perfect morning with sun streaming in the windows as Wayne headed off to check out Summerside pickleball. It turns out to be a dozen folks who are all pretty good so it made for a great morning of beating the ball around. The local people are very welcoming and my rusty game was soon exposed and they were happy to make me pay for my many mistakes. It was still very nice to be playing outdoors even if I did not represent BC very well. We will see if things improve by Wednesday??? After lunch we decided to cruise down to Victoria...

Jul 30, 2017 - beach front livin'

We had arranged a beachfront site for the next few days and the folks staying there were gone first thing in the morning so we scooted down and were set up on a huge site with a panoramic beach view by 9AM. Donna announced she was not moving from this location all day and maybe several other days. We are officially taking a break from our touring holiday and enjoying summer. Even Wadoberu wants to work on his tan!! Once set up we were surprised when the folks we met on our fjord cruise on NFLD walked up for a visit. These friendly folks...

Jul 29, 2017 - hooked up

The morning dawns clear so Wayne goes out for a stroll around the old base, Sleman Park, while Donna does security at the trailer. The base closed over 25 years ago but it seems to be very well cared for with both the rec center and arena still in operation. The hangers have tenants such as John Deere using the buildings and the old kindergarden is a day care. The barracks have been transformed into a hotel and the old base housing is rented out to the public now. The large runways are dotted with private planes and a couple of small jets...

Jul 28, 2017 - sunny Summerside

Exploring Summerside and the waterfront area was our plan for the day. There is a 6km boardwalk so we parked at one end and strolled into the shopping and visitors info area. The area seems a little rundown with some of the colorful shops at Spinnakers Landing offering the usual tourist wares but it was pretty quiet with not much going on. It didn’t take long to complete our investigation of this area so B&R decide to head back to the Brackley Beach area to have a little beach and cycle time of their own before heading on to New Brunswick....

Sep 4, 2016 - Acadian Festival

Sunday, September 4, 2016 Today was one of those glorious days that we will always recall with a huge smile. We attended the "L’Exposition agricole et al Festival Acadian de la region Evangeline" – The Acadian Festival at Abrams Village in the Evangeline region of PEI. Our day started with a 6:45 AM wake-up to make it to Cap Egmont Wharf by 9:15 AM. Not sure of exactly where the wharf was located, we followed a string of cars turning left off Rt. 11. Luckily they were the right cars to follow– made it by 9:10! The harbor was decorated with...

Aug 21, 2013 - Summerside, PE

Happy to see sunshine for our day Wednesday as we enjoyed a great breakfast at the B&B and then headed east though southern New Brunswick. As we reached Moncton, NB, we saw people watching from the bridge over the river, and then hundreds lined up along the shore of the river, so decided we'd better stop and find out what was going on. Found a parking place just in time to see the tide coming up the river, with surfers riding that wave along with a jet skiier Fascinating!! Next came the Confederation Bridge into Prince Edward Island - a...
