We did not have a reservation at any rv park, so we took our chances at the Cavendish KOA and were not turned away. A nice park, but after St. Martins, we were a bit spoiled. But, if we wanted drop dead gorgeous scenery, we had only to drive out of the park and take a left....or a right. PEI is just too beautiful to put into words and made me wish for a much better camera, which I knew how to properly use of course. Our poor photos do not begin to capture the beauty. But, we tried. In fact, I drove, and Paul was snapping photos non stop. The churches were so lovely, the fields of wheat and potatoes and even clover and all types of wild flowers, well, we were dazzled. Our first full day there we decided to do the L.M.M. tour, we first stopped into the site of her home while she lived with her grandparents and wrote Anne of Green Gables and several other novels and lots of poetry and short stories. There is a nice book store selling lots of good things and then a path leading from there for a bit over a mile to the farm which was the inspiration for the "Green Gables". We paid our fee and took a nice walk through woods and lots of info signs along the way.
This part of the walk was very pleasant since the shade from the trees was very cool.
After visiting her home we drove down the road a bit to visit her birthplace. We did not get out, just took some photos.
We were hungry by now, so, when I saw this sign I made a quick right turn and we agreed to give it a try. A very nice Japanese couple own and operate the Blue Wind, which is a lovely tea room with excellent food. I had a cup of clam chowder (very very good) and a cucumber and veggie sandwich and Paul had the chowder and a ham and cream cheese sandwich.
After lunch we headed for the town of Summerside. There is lots to see and do in this busy town which boasts a large Walmart! We visited the heritage museum and then the pier with lots of cute shops and great view of the bay.
Our next stop was here (above) to see their afternoon program. The school specializes on Highland Dance, Snare drum and bagpipe. They have over 300 students from all over the world and are very well-known. We enjoyed watching these talented young people and were very impressed with the facilities.
The next day was cloudy and rainy and cold...not every day can be blue skies! We stayed inside and enjoyed reading and relaxing. The rain did not stop the vacationers, they got out and about and were busy....we knew we had plenty of time....this was our life, not our vacation! We decided to skip Nova Scotia for several reasons one being we know we will return for the rally which will be held there next year, the other was the ferry....So, on Wednesday we packed up....hit the Cows store again....
Went back over this bridge.....
After saying Good bye to Anne....
We were headed back to the USA, boondocked at a nice Walmart in Fredericton, NB....then on to Bangor, Maine.
