Prince Edward Island
01.05.2017 - 01.05.2017
Today we visited Prince Edward Island. Didn’t realize that PEI was a separate province of Canada, but it is. Its capital, Charlottetown is beautiful place full of lovely historic buildings and a nice harbour.
After a quick walk around the town, we took a “motorcoach” tour of the island visiting North Rustico Fishing Village, the beaches loop (a coastal area where erosion has made some picturesque landscapes, the Prince Edward Island Preserve (the Jam Factory) and “Green Gables”
The highlight for me was “Green Gables” the house where author L.M.Montgomery lived and was inspired to write her novels including “Anne of Green Gables”. Haven’t read the book (I will now) but I loved the original movie/series. I know It’s a girl’s story but I now look forward to watching it again.
On our sail out from Charlottetown we passed under and had good views of the Confederation Bridge which is the longest bridge in the world over ice covered waters (no ice now in May though).
Tomorrow is a sea day and then Quebec.
