Hey there Campers;
Well, it is time to almost say goodbye to Prince Edward Island. It rained last night so we were a little leery of going bike riding. But we decided to go anyway. We drove to Cavendish Grove to catch one of the many trails in the city.
The trail was very natural.
We saw lots of black birds. We were trying to decide if they were ravens or crows. We decided they had to be ravens since they were quite large. The way they were cawing I felt like we were in the about Edgar Allen Poe movie The Raven. A little sinister!!
After riding in the wrong direction we finally found the path that lead to the ocean. I really wasn't the ocean but the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Lo decided he wanted to be adventurous and ride his bike down to the beach. Now the challenge was to get the bike back up the hill. I was most impress with my honey for wanting to do something different. Normally that would have been me going down there. You go Lo.
I wanted to see how warm the water was. It defiantly was not SF water. This was quite nice. People were walking far into the gulf.
Lo decided he wanted us to go to North Cape before leaving. This is at the furthest end of the island So we take the Hilton to Walmart in Sunnyside and get in Connie for the trip. We passed through many farm lands. Everything here is flat.
We ventured down to the beach. For some strange reason, people stack rocks into strange formations all over the beach.
We got a chance to see birds and seals on the sand bars.
OK what is wrong with this picture? Does the sign not say the cliffs are dangerous??? I think some people just choose to ignore common sense.
There also was a Wind Energy Interpretive Center. This is quite interesting in that there were windmills everywhere.
Have you ever thought how long one of the windmill blades are? Or how big the motor is to run the windmill? Well Google to see the stats. Windmills really helps to save energy and fuel.
I like the way you can find a lighthouse. Just look for the lighthouse sign.
So at the end of the day we venture back across the bridge. Now this is a toll bridge. The coming over is free. But the going back is $45.00 for cars. But we have to pay $66.00 for the RV and towing vehicle. They got you because you don't have any way of getting off the island except for a ferry ride. For us on the ferry it is over $200 and a hours ride.
We make it back to New Brunswick for the night.
Question of the Day
What crop does Prince Edward Island known for?
Well, until the next time Campers......
