Where I stayed
Cavendish National Park
Arriving on the Island was a complete contrast to virtually everything we have seen in Canada. The fields were smaller, rolling hills small woods, it was almost like being back in the UK. It really is a beautiful Island so quiet and relaxing, its the sort of place you could go for 3 months to write a book or chill out. No place on the Island is more than 10 miles from the sea so many homes have beautiful views. Most days the weather was really good to us. We stayed at a National Park located at Cavandish beach. It was a lovely sandy beach in contrast to most of the islands red sands. We drove around the north part of the island where there will lots of lighthouses and wind turbines.
On one of the days the weather was overcast in the morning so went to Anne of Green Gables house, Cavandish on PEI is where Lucy Maud Montgomery took her inspriation from to write her best selling book
PEI is famous for its potatoes but also its Lobster, so we had the 'traditional' Lobster meal. However, we all enjoyed the mussels more and managed to consume nearly 4 buckets full!!
After packing the trailer tent we drove back across Confederation Bridge on our way to Cape Bretton Island..
