I spend the day driving in sunny weather on the western half of PEI.
Summerside, up to Tignish, take in the little country backroads along the coast, through the farmlands, little seaside villages, the red soil, potatoes, very clean, unspoilt, lakes, amazing beauty!
The beaches of Cavendish are so clean, unspoilt and beautiful, simply breathtaking! Not to be missed!
A very beautiful area, the home of Anne of Green Gables.
I stop in New Glasgow and treat myself to a famous Lobster Dinner.
There is seating here for hundreds of people and the bus loads of people eating here are quite regular in lobster season.
I have the 1 lb. lobster dinner with all the trimmings.
The cost is around $20.00 plus tax.
This includes all the mussels, chowder and whatever else you can eat, including desserts!
I can't explain how good the seafood is, you have to try it for yourself, mussels & chowder were awesome!
I drive back across the scenic hills & mts. to the beautiful seaside town of Victoria on the Sea.
I spend the night in a dorm bed of a B&B/Hostel

Anniversary of D-Day today, lest we forget!
I drive the eastern half of PEI today.
Another sunny day, it has been very enjoyable to see the towns, villages, friendly people of PEI.
Of course my time here was not long enough, I had 2 days of georgeous weather.
I got a taste of PEI and hope to get back here again oneday and explore some more.
In the afternoon I catch the ferry from Wood Islands, PEI over to Caribou, Nova Scotia and waste no time scooting over to Halifax where I check into the local Youth Hostel in Halifax and plan to wander around this city for a few days.
Prince Edward Island was awesome!
