I Forgot to Give This a Title...

Top of the evening everyone...

For those of you who have not been out east, you should go.  We just got back from Prince Edward Island.  If you are familiar with the "Anne of Green Gables" books, they were all written out there.  L. M. Montgomery is buried in Cavendish.  We explored the cemetery.

I am forced to confess that PEI has the absolute best ice cream I have ever had.  I do not do dairy so well, but decided to risk it because of the reputation.  I think that my daughter found meaning in life at Cows ice cream.

I took the boys bicycle riding up and down the eastern shoreline.  There were all sorts of birds, including one comparatively small bird that walked up and down the red dunes.

We had a fair amount of debate as to how to get to PEI.  There is the bridge and the ferry.  We all very much wanted to take the ferry, because, you know, we believe in ferries.  We ended up doing both.

I went in up to my knees in the water up near Cavendish.  I was not going to be that far north and not get my feet wet.

We rented a cottage at Cavendish.  With cottages, we have front porches.  You talk to your neighbours.  I found it interesting that the men all wanted to sell everything and move out to PEI.  It seems so much calmer than life in all of the places from which we hail.

We also went to the potato museum.  PEI grows a lot of potatoes.  They fry quite well.

I am being stepped on, so I think I should help with the groceries.

Good night everyone.

  1. Many years back I did the most amazing tour of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI. I absolutely loved that trip. So much so that the next year I did another tour of Newfoundland and Labrador. I love that one too. I also loved the more relaxed pace of life there. The people are really friendly. One of my favourite places we stayed was Bras D'Or at this awesome resort. I met a couple who were part of our group that we are still friends to this day. Honestly I would live there in a heartbeat. By the way Cows ice cream has got to be the best ice cream ever!!! Did you see their funny T-shirts? You don't have to go all the way out East for more Cows ice cream, they have a store in Niagara-On-The-Lake. It's just across the street from the theatre right on the main street.
