A Visit to Prince Edward Island, Canada

Steve, Cathy, Dave, and Helen visit Prince Edward Island, Canada. 

We strolled the boardwalk of Cavendish Beach in the Prince Edward Island (PEI) National Park.

We spent one evening at a Ceilidh in Stanley Bridge Hall. A Ceilidh (pronounced "Kay Lee") is a celebration of music connecting traditional music from Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton Island. An evening enjoyment of music complete with stories, fiddling, song, and step-dancing.

We visited the lighthouse in North Rustico, one of sixty-one lighthouses on PEI.  We saw the offshore statue in North Rustico harbor celebrating the role of the fishing industry in the lives of the people of PEI.

A must-visit in PEI is the home of  Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green GablesCathy and I had previously watched an Anne of Green Gables movie, and Cathy could not wait to see the homestead of L.M. Montgomery (her author name), as described in the movie and book. We walked the garden enjoyed by her and read the signs with excerpts from her books (most signs in PEI are in English and French.) You will hear Cathy read one of the many meaningful signs along the path.   

The Buzz PEI is Prince Edward Island’s monthly Guide to "What’s Going On" featuring community events and local art, music, theatre, books, food & drink, film and more.

We stayed in a delightful two-bedroom cottage at Cavendish Bosom Buddies Cottages and Suites.

Our visit was shortened because of Hurricane Fiona. We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay - originally planned for six nights. We could feel how proud the people felt to be P.E. Islanders. We definitely will return.
