Prince Edward Island (PEI)

Soft Morning on PEI

It was a soft day (as the Irish would say) with mist draping the fields of Prince Edward Island. Brisk winds mixed with chilly temperatures made it challenging to be outside, so we settled for a leisurely drive, punctuated with a fabulous lunch at The Lobster Barn in the small village of Victoria.

Red sand beaches and fertile farmland fill this beautiful province – the smallest in Canada – with idyllic scenes, and was the setting for the 1908 book Anne of Green Gables. There’s even a museum dedicated to this fictional character!

The Confederation Bridge connecting New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island spans 8 miles and clears 197 feet below. Built in the 1990’s, it’s the longest bridge in the world crossing ice-covered water.

We’ve been staying in Shediac NB, home to world’s largest lobster. Tomorrow it’s on to Nova Scotia!
