Jul 6, 2018 - Anne of Green Gables

Fri., July 6th – We're scratching the rough trip of yesterday from the memory bank, but as they say….”the sun will shine again”…well, maybe we had cloudy skies and a few thunderstorms to deal with today, but we were still glad to be tooling around this place without our homes in tow. We visited the home that inspired L.M. Montgomery to write the awesome “Anne of Green Gables” series. Sure wish I had my Viviana with me. She has read many of the novels about this imaginative, red-headed girl from Cavendish. From there we walked to the beach...

Sep 27, 2017 - PEI & Cape Breton Island

On to Prince Edward Island, the smallest of our provinces. As a matter of fact, one person I spoke with said they shouldn't even be a province. The total population is 140,000 and it only has an area of 5,600 sq kms.(2162 sq. miles) That being said, we loved PEI. It is slow-paced, laid-back and very uncrowded. The perfect weather we had when we were there may have influenced our experience. We got there by crossing the Confederation Bridge - an engineering masterpiece. It is 13 Kms long over the Northumberland Strait. It was built in...

Sep 19, 2017 - Finally, the Ocean

Day Three. In the morning, as we pulled out, our GPS had us head a new way out of the park... but after coming to the end of a 7km road and finding a locked gate, we did a 3 point turn backtracking our way through the park. The GPS actually admitted it was confused, gave us an error message and then she just stared at us. Once we were back on the right path and rebooting the GPS box, we were on the way. Not long after we got going the right direction and track, we once again made a wrong turn but ended up in the grocery lot parking lot......

Jul 12, 2017 - Over the bridge to PEI

Another big travel day leaving at 7:30 and arriving about 3:30 after traveling 240 miles and stopping at a few places along the way. We went down the side of New Brunswick, crossed the bridge on to PEI and then went around the west end of the island to get to the campground in Cavendish. A rest stop at MacDonald's Farm wasn't open yet so we couldn't see what he had on his farm. E I E I O We were passing by the Kouchibouguac (couch-ee-boo-guack) National Park, so we stopped at the visitor center to learn about it. It tells the story of three...

Sep 1, 2016 - Charlottetown PEI

First stop today was at Green Gables Heritage House., I so love the old time days, and to see the kind of life people lived , especially that of Lucy Maud Montgomery. The Author of Anne of Green Gables.one of my favourite stories. Even got my picture with Anne 𯘊 We then carried on to Charlettetown and took in some sites down town by the Warf. Frank was intrigued on the big freighter being loaded. We thought we would go up the East Coastal Drive a short distance, as it all looked similar to the North Cape Drive we did yesterday. The weather...

Aug 31, 2016 - Another day in PEI

Enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning drive up towards North Cape. Stopped along the way and checked out some of the beaches.little towns along the way. When we got to North Cape it was amazing to see the Golf of St Lawrence and Northumberland meet and have there tides colide together. I even got to see my lighthouse!! There were a few rain showers along the way,( but settled down when we got back ) We then headed down the Summerside side and see lush green fields of various crops. We stopped for some veggies and strawberries. Once back in...

Aug 30, 2016 - Arrived into PEI

Arrived in PEI at noon, Frank was just so amazed how a bridge could get us across such a huge body of water. Our first stop was at the Tourist Info building. Then we loaded up with books and maps to help with our continued journey. We had lunch at a nice little Fish joint, I had an awesome chowder, and Frank Fish and chips. Just an hr down the road , we found a National Campground ,called Camping Cavendish. Well, our spot we got overlooks the ocean, and all we could think about is how soothing the waves will be while sleeping tonight. And...

Jul 13, 2016 - Cavendish via the bridge! Red beaches & dirt!

So, now, we are onto PEI, after my uncomfortable drive on the Federation bridge in out Class A, we arrived at Borden Carlton gift shops and tourist centre. It was awesome shop, restaurants, mall, and outdoor entertainment by a trio of young gals, fiddling and singing. After some lunch and walking around we drove onto the birthplace of L.M. Montgomery who authored Ann of Green Gables, and then onto Cavendish where we stayed at Sunset Campground, huge sites and fastest Wifi ever. There are so many corn and potato fields, you could be in the...

Sep 28, 2015 - PEI

We made it across the bridge!! I was very worried....they close the bridge to anything over 2.2 metres when the weather is adverse....and 40 km winds with 60 km gusts that seem to happen almost all the time was surely going to affect us at 3.5 metres...but strangely enough we were fine, it was a bit of a tail wind and we really didn't feel it at all. Once across we did sort of an eenie meenie, and decided to go left, up to the North Cape point. Very beautiful, the end of the Cape was what we sort of thought we would have going up the Digby...

Aug 3, 2015 - Prince Edward Island

We crossed the 7-1/2 mile Confederation Bridge from Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island. This is the longest bridge in the world than spans the frozen sea in the winter. It is a high, very beautiful bridge with lots of traffic. As mentioned before, our tour of the "Anne of Green Gables" complex is one of the highlights of PEI and we will do additional tours of the rest of the island. One we are interested in seeing is the "Singing Sands" beach. According to the brochures, when you walk across the sands, it makes musical sounds! More on...

Jul 28, 2015 - A Day in Avonlea

A quick note to let you know we spent the day with Anne of Green Gables. First the village, second the house and third the musical. All very well done. Next time you hear from us it will be from Nova Scotia. Hopefully we will see some sun over there.
