Jul 30, 2018 - tour of PEI, Charlottestown, Anne of Green Gables

Yet another bus ride tour. This time around the central part of PEI. This island is one of the most beautiful areas we have seen. The startling thing is, NO TRASH or LITTER anywhere and they recycle “Literally” everything in one way or another. This island is primarily farmland with the greatest product being potatoes. If you have had McyD’s fries, you have had PEI spuds. Our tour took us to the beach at PEI National Park to walk in the soft powdery sand and to tour the “Anne of Green Gables” National Heritage Site, the home of Lucy Maud...

Jul 28, 2018 - Georgetown and another musical

Today we had a leisurely morning since those who paid for the extra trip to Georgetown did not have to be on the coach until 10:00, and those not going had the whole day unto themselves. It was a beautiful morning as we were awaken by the sun. We were on the coach at 10:00 for our hour drive to Georgetown. Upon arrival in Georgetown, we were greeted by Perry, who invited us in to a church hall that he rents to entertain Grand Circle and others tour groups. We were entertained by Taylor who singing sea shanties of the guitar as we walked in...

Jul 27, 2018 - Visiting with Anne of Green Gables

We had breakfast at 7:00 with Gary & Lila. It was sort of the usual breakfast buffet, but Don complained that there was no cheese, Lila said there was no toast, there was also no baked beans - so the usual, minus a few items. We can survive. We had to be on the bus this morning at 8:00. We drove through Charlottetown on our way to Summerside, where the author of Anne of Green Gables had lived. We had an hour drive, so Kim played some silly Canadian songs. Upon our arrival at the Anne of Green Gables museum, we were walked over to the...

2018 Canada Trip

Jul 26, 2018 - Rainy day, Hopewell Rocks and PEI

Today was another early day with the 6:45 breakfast routine like yesterday. Today, though, it is because we start our long travel day to Prince Edward Island (PEI). Not only did we have to go to breakfast early, we also had to have our luggage out by 6:45. While at breakfast, I realized that I had the wrong shoes on for today. It is suppose to rain (no problem), but one of the stops is to walk amongst the Hopewell Rocks at low tide (also the reason to leave early in order to arrive at low tide) and the ground will be very wet and muddy on...

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...
