We started off by doing something I have always wanted to do but was never in the car with anyone else willing to pull over.
Not that.... this!
|take pictures of the Confederation Bridge!|
|We are going rouge and heading left instead of right on the map, so rebellious!|
We headed to Summerside. We visited the College of Piping and found a very helpful lady who directed us to the perfect lunch spot and mentioned that if we came back around 1:30 or 2 we could sit in on rehersals for a while since there was no performance that day. We had a great lunch at Miss Daisy's Bistro. It was just too cute, we felt like we had gone to a friend's house for lunch. A friend with a quaint house who can really cook!
|We are smiling because we are about to have some delicious food....and the sun is shining!|
The College of Piping did not disappoint. What can I say? I love bagpipes! They stir something deep inside me.
Our own private show....without costumes.
|Great way to recycle those old bottles!|
Notre Dame du Mont Carmel
Sometimes when you go off road you are rewarded. Here are pictures of a few of our off road rewards! It was just one beautiful thing after another. We were looking for the beach with the rocks.....because none of the beaches around here have rocks....hahaha! But we were looking for one particular location and we sorta found it.
|One postcard view after another on PEI!|
|Luckily we did not run over Mrs. Stinky and her baby hiding underneath all that fur!|
|We found the most amazing lupin field in North America on our trail!|
|We found a very picturesque oyster farm. I think whoever runs this place is very orderly! Everything was so tidy.|
|We did yoga on a rock|
We finally ended up at one place the information gal highlighted, Cavendish Beach. So different than the beach we are used to or the beach with the rocks.
Our final destination was Charlottetown and the Gahan House. We sampled some of the beer, had a yummy dinner and headed back to reality....well not reality, the farmhouse. We did not run over the family of racoons on the road home either, unfortunately we did not get their picture because it was so late and so dark, but they were there! It was "the best day ever"!
|Cheers to a great day! We came, we saw, we enjoyed!|
