Yesterday we visited a small island on the coast of Maine. Click here if you missed that post. Today we visit another island a little further north in Canada. Prince Edward Island is todays destination. We visited PEI on a New England and Canada cruise in 2011 (same trip as Bar Harbor). The island has so much to see and we would love to go back and see more of it.

We took a shore excursion to a few different parts of the island. We stopped at Cavandish Beach which had some stunning red cliffs and then over to see the Anne of Green Gables house. Amanda was super excited about seeing that. Then it was off to a jam place and back to Charlottetown to explore a bit.

The inside of the house was beautifully decorated

The gardens around the house provided a nice pop of colour

The countryside is stunning here. 
The greens are so vivid here even when it is cloudy like this day

After our tour we found this Irish pub. They had really good fish and chips and i was so happy when they asked if i wanted gravy on my chips as they dont have that in Virginia. Its very popular in Australia where i come from.

We stopped at Cows for Icecream even though it was chilly and windy outside. It is our favourite icecream store and only available in Canada.

  1. Loved reading this tour diary! Great pics. Looks like it was a really pleasant trip. Liked that 'gravy on the chips' part. :-)

  2. I would visit Anne's house too! I can't help but think of "Anne with an E" when I spell it out! It's like my daughter, who has been "Erika with a K" since birth. I would not want gravy on my fries. Gravy belongs on mashed potatoes. Yes, it might taste the same, being potatoes, but no. Catsup on fried. Gravy on mashed. I posted about flowers that start with C and a poetry from called Centro. and
