Here we are with the second part of my experience in Canada – Let’s explore Prince Edward Island and meet Ann of Green Gables!
From Nova Scotia i took a ferry ride about 45 minutes to get to Prince Edward Island and this was the first view that i get.
On the way to the Hotel i had to stop again few times as it was like in a book. The Landscape looks like a beautiful postcard.
A perfect reflection of the lighthouse in the red sand. It was a different view of the Island that i expected.
As i arrived at the Hotel, which was a pretty cute Inn, i was so happy to spend the next days here. Situated in the City of Charlottetown close to the harbour and all the attractions.
Thats the “Cranford In”,my place for the next days – which makes you feel like home. Martha & Vicki are the perfect host and prepare the best breakfast in the world (everyday fresh and homemade)
The next day i started my journey in the west part of the island – Te central coast drive route, which is about 196km.
Beautiful red sand shores runs along the Island crossing the PEI National Park and Cavendish. Guess its the most scenic drive i have ever seen and probably the most travelled road on that island too.
I never saw a beach like this – its like a painting with the red sand. Driving that scening road i stopped next at the Cavendish Beach.
As i had bit time and went down to the beach and stepped into the fresh water. On my way back i found that little sweet crab.
Exploring Canada in Prince Edward Island is a very special feeling – you become one with that beautiful nature and you can feel that is real. No stress, no busy highways – everything is just peaceful and relaxing.
Next stop along the coast was North Rustico: Home of the world-famous Fisherman`s Wharf Lobster Suppers.
The nearby National Park offers pristine sandy beaches for sun-seekers while neighboring Cavendish offers a wide variety of shopping venues, restaurants and other attractions. Its a good mix enjoying your holidays – having fun and relaxing at the same time.
Who knows Ann of Green Gables ????
Thats her house 🙂 I loved Ann when i was younger and watching that TV Series – and now i was able to see her house in real and walking through the haunted woods where she spend her time.
This was maybe a part of the kitchen where Ann was eating ? During my visit she was outside in the haunted woods and bit shy, thats why i don’t have a picture here of her.
My last stop on the way back was the huge Confederation Bridge:
It links Prince Edward Island with mainland New Brunswick and is 12.9km and the longest bridge in the world that is crossing ice-covered water.
Now it was time to explore the East Coastal Drive which was about 475km – ok i wasn’t driving the whole route, but a big part of it.
You can go for a walk or have fun with doing some paragliding at the beach. I fall in love with that beaches in Prince Edward Island as they are so huge and there is enough space for a long walk.I found that stairway to heaven 🙂
In the evening i decided to drive to the PEI national park to catch the sunset.
My first stop was that small Lake – Dalvay by the sea. Amazing colors reflected in the sea with a magic view.I sit down for few minutes to enjoy the sunset. This house in the background is also a oceanfront resort and is perfectly located.
Catching a sunset is a speedy thing as you don’t have that much time. Was impressed by the beach during the sunset that i almost forgot about that majestic lighthouse in the dunes.
Yes my last evening in Prince Edward Island before i had to leave next day back to Germany.
I will miss that Island and hope to come back one day again.
I have to mention dear Kelly, who was my lovely and very patient guide for the first days. Thanks so much Kelly and also Craig Sullis from the tourism office who took care every day. It was a big pleasure meeting you both 🙂
Thanks also again to:
for a fantastic adventure with so many beautiful impressions – Canada is definitely more than huge mountains and lakes – its also a picturesque postcard with gorgeous landscape and fantastic activities for everyone and for a special adventure meeting Ann of Green Gables!
