    Straw hat and pigtails

    June 29 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    1172 miles travelled
    We journeyed through the forests of New Brunswick over the eight mile long confederation bridge to Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.). The first thing that struck us was how red the sand and dirt is (like Dawlish!). It’s a pretty island with watery inlets cutting into the rolling landscape and there are farms with red barns and tractors rusting away in the undergrowth. One of the reasons to visit this island is to see the house that was the subject of the book ‘Anne of green gables’. Canada parks manage it and a fine job they have done. Nice to stroll around and take in the atmosphere. L M Montgomery the lady author was born and lived close by and the house was owned by her elderly relatives. However outside the gate. Some ‘entrepreneurs’ have cached in on the theme. If it’s not ticky tacky shops, it’s crazy golf or miniature roller coasters that vie for your attention. Not really in keeping with the area. We have enjoyed some nice trails nearby and as we walk along we come across swathes of lupins they are everywhere. Unfortunately the mozzies here are everywhere too and ferocious. Stop for a second and they are on you biting away. However a liberal application of deet see them bouncing and skidding away. It defiantly works on these horrors. Visited Charlottetown the capital of P.E.I. Nothing much to write home about. Bit of a tourist trap.Read more

    Prince Edward Island

    September 8 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Wir haben uns dann entschieden heute doch auf Prince Edward Island zu fahren. Auf dem Weg dorthin haben wir dann das Ausmaß des Sturmes gesehen. Überall umgefallen Bäume, teilweise abgedeckte Dächer und an einer Stelle wurden auch Boote durch den Wind gewirbelt. Schon krass.
    Da es keinen Strom gab, sind auch die Ampeln ausgefallen. Der Verkehr lief aber problemlos. An Kreuzungen mit vier Einfahrten wird im Prinzip der Reihe nach gefahren. Also wer zuerst ankommt, der fährt zuerst, dann der zweite usw. So muss man maximal drei Autos abwarten bis man an der Reihe ist. Das würde in Deutschland nie funktionieren.
    Über die Confederation Bridge ging es dann nach Prince Edward Island. Die Brücke ist 13km lang!! Die Insel scheint sehr schön zu sein, leider waren aber sehr viele Straßen, über die wir fahren wollten, gesperrt.
    Wir haben aber trotzdem noch ein paar Straßen gefunden die offen waren und konnten so die Insel ein bisschen erkunden. Weniger als wir wollten, aber unter den Umständen war es leider nicht anders möglich.
    Wieder an Land haben wir uns dazu entschlossen heute nochmal in Moncton zu bleiben. Aber zuerst mussten wir uns noch die „Tidal Bore“-Welle anschauen. Eine Welle, die zweimal am Tag, immer wenn die Flut kommt, einen Kanal in der Stadt durchläuft und angeblich bis zu 2m hoch wird. Bei uns wurde sie das nicht. Es war jetzt nicht so das Highlight. Eher ein „Total Bore“ 🙈🙈😂😂
    Wir haben dann tatsächlich noch einen Supermarkt gefunden der geöffnet hat. Wir mussten unsere Wasservorräte noch auffüllen und ein bisschen was zum Abendessen kaufen. Und weil es WLAN gab konnten wir auch nach einem Motel suchen, was noch nicht ausgebucht war und zudem auch noch Strom hat. Hat alles geklappt!😃
    Und dann ist morgen auch schon Montag und die Reise neigt sich langsam dem Ende entgegen. Ein bisschen Programm haben wir aber noch geplant. Hoffentlich mit weniger Autofahren. Wir sind jetzt in den 1,5 Wochen insgesamt knapp 45 Stunden Auto gefahren. Das sind knapp 3.000km. Wir hätten weniger fahren können. Dann hätten wir aber auch weniger gesehen.
    Mal schauen wie es in den nächsten Tagen noch wird ✌️

    Prince Edward Island

    June 5 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    I thought I would treat myself to a rental car and a trip to PEI. It was horrible and raining for the entire drive there, but luckily the sun came out early afternoon. This place is beautiful! It’s known for its red sand beaches and seafood, so it would be rude not to visit Thunder Bay Cove with the sandstone ‘teacup’ and enjoy some seafood for dinner! Also enjoyed a stop at Lucy Maud Montgomery’s (author of Anne of Green Gables) birthplace as well as a glass bottle village someone has created in their backyard to raise money for charity.Read more

    Prince Edward Island

    June 17 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We drove south and crossed the Confederation Bridge to reach Prince Edward Island today. The drive across the island to our campground was spectacular with verdant rolling hills and lush farmlands. We saw many red sand potato fields that reminded us of Georgia and Alabama red clay. Tonight we visited Avonlea Village which consisted of antique buildings that are now shops and restaurants.Read more

    North Shore/Ross Family Ceilidh

    June 19 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    Today we first drove to Brackley Beach where we saw various local artists' works. After a nice lunch in the studio cafe and gardens, we drove along another area of the north shore which is also part of the National Park system. We found wide sandy beaches with surprisingly warm water pools. Tonight we had quite a treat. We went to the Ross Family Ceilidh nearby and were amazed at their talent both in music and traditional step dancing. They put on quite a show!Read more

    North Rustico Wharf

    June 20 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    We spent our final day on Prince Edward Island back at the wharf in North Rustico. (We had to have another taste of the delicious seafood chowder at the Blue Mussel Cafe!) We loved seeing the lobstermen on the wharf bringing in their huge catch for the day. Tonight we had a group dinner at the Fisherman's Wharf--more lobster!Read more

    Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

    September 24, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    Today we visited Prince Edward Island (PEI) which is the smallest Canadian province. We docked in Charlottetown, which is the birthplace of modern Canada. It is PEI’s oldest and largest city.
    We spoke to the local representative on board, got a map and were on our way. We walked through historic Charlottetown following the “Fathers of Confederation” route (a painted line on the sidewalk). We viewed wonderful examples of Victorian architecture, quaint boutiques and Province House (the provincial legislature since 1847).Read more

    Anne of Green Gables

    June 18 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We started our day by visiting the house and barn of Anne of Green Gables fame. It is now part of a National Park with lovely walking trails as well. Afterward we drove to the wharf at North Rustico for lunch at the Blue Mussel Cafe-- yummy seafood chowder and fresh halibut. After lunch we drove along the north shore which has also been preserved as a National Park with its beautiful red rock formations. Offshore were thousands of lobster pots and working lobster boats.Read more
