I’m so happy you have come along for the last part of our trip in Prince Edward Island Canada also known as PEI.
Do you know what PEI is known for? Please tell me you do!
We have asked several people and they have never heard of Anne of Green Gables……I don’t know whether I should feel old…out-dated…or really wondering why I loved this story so much as a teen-age girl…I haven’t gotten the answer on any of the above…just that I’m shocked so many haven’t heard of this story. Our third day we woke up to some gorgeous sunny and cool weather.
We loaded up…grabbed breakfast and coffee at this adorable coffee shop I had seen on UrbanSpoon and wanted to check out. Kettle Black. I think I could have spent the rest of the day in that coffee shop with a book, loving their decor, the smell of coffee and reading a book by the window.
As we jumped back in the car…the windows rolled down because the weather was divine…all I had to say was “slow down a bit” and my mister knew I had seen something I wanted a picture of…in this old town of Charlottetown I loved all of the old restored homes and their bright colored unique doors. I decided to do a quick obsession series… oh these doors get me every time! I wanted to give you a feel of our drive down those old town streets.
Another obsession series I had decided to do on this adventure was to capture the road signs…they were so neat…so many of them. I will say the whole island was so well marked with different routes you could take that were mapped out to see different sites. We didn’t stay on those routes the entire time, as we wanted to get off the beaten path and see some of what the real life on the island might be like. They are normal people like us…just living a bit more simple lives and a lot of farming. There were some gorgeous farm houses we passed as we were on the back roads of the island.
As we drove off of the island and paid our huge toll for the bridge…which thankfully we had been given a heads up on that cost! We headed down through Canada…on a long drive back to Maine. When I say long…not so much long in hours length…long in the sense there isn’t much in Canada…so between towns there is nothing but road and trees. To our surprise we really didn’t seen any wildlife along our drive…we were hoping to though! As we drove back into Maine we scooted through customs just fine and found our way in Bar Harbor, Maine at a very generous aunt and uncles house! They welcomed us and gave us a cozy and quiet place to sleep for the night. The sunset was gorgeous as it set and the moon was so bright on the water that I was pretty ecstatic about the shots I got that night at their home. We definitely slept great that evening as the windows were open and you could hear the ocean gently hitting the rocks…talk about peaceful sleeping!
