Prince Edward Island

Island fresh oysters - they were very good!

View of the sunset outside our RV door at Crystal Beach near Summerside

Fall decorations abound everywhere we go!

Red Sands Golf Course - near the North Shore - beautiful country setting everywhere we go!

Barry had some smoking good shots then the wheels fell off the bus on #8 & #9!

Basement remains of the home of author Lucy Maud Montgomery at Cavendish

Resident Blue Heron at Crystal Beach Campground - we watched him endlessly as he was 'fishing'!

Our campsite at Crystal Beach Campground

Hiking the Haunted Wood (Anne of Green Gables)

For Vicky - Grandma Sandy learned to sew on a sewing machine like this!

Waiting to 'board' the Titanic!

At the dinner theater - "Last Dinner on the Titanic"

Titanic Evening!

Outside Atlantic Vet College in Chtown

We knew the outcome - Sandra's character survived - Barry's did not!

Where we had our Lobster supper - small but awesome!

Remains of our Lobster Dinner - I am sure we didn't clean every last morsel - after all we are flatlanders and lack lobster eating skills!

Our waitress demonstrated how to use the mussel shell as a tweezers in eating the fresh mussels - Barry mastered the skill very quickly!  Sandra - not too bad!
We spent a week on PEI - enjoying the tranquility and beauty of the province - small as it is at 135,000 + people - it certainly is not lacking in ambiance or character! 

We needed some down time to tend to a little repair on the 5th wheel and had to update our cell phone for communication purposes.  In previous visits we had visited Founders Hall and Province House - so skipped these attractions this time in favor of some golf and ocean side camp enjoyment plus a couple of plays - the Musical - Anne (of Green Gables) & Gilbert and a dinner theater - "The Last Dinner on the Titanic".  Both were enjoyable but especially the Anne & Gilbert Musical.  Of course we had to visit the inspirational home for the Anne of Green Gables series and walked the haunted wood.

Our  visit also had to include some fresh oysters and a good feed of mussels and lobster.  Sandra's Cousin Don and Wife Jan graciously hosted us with our 5th wheel in their yard for three days and then gave us a personal tour around the Atlantic Vet College Open House.  All in all it was a full week and very pleasurable.
