We spent most of our time on the east side of the island. But the first Friday we went to Delway and Cavendish area. We did not go to Anne of Green Gables because I know for a fact it is not the original home, which was burnt to the ground. There were 16 buses there from the states. A money trap!
We did go to Avonlea, which is not to be confused with the set which is for the greater part in Kitchener Ontario. WE heard beautiful island music there and saw how the fish and open an oyster. None of us brave enough to eat one! Then we drove up the west coast.

Going to Worship throughout the week and on Sunday was a real blessing to us all. meeting new ones and learning life on the island. This particular Sunday was really windy. Not cold out but the wind dropped the temperature a lot. Dearest wanted KFC ( yuck) so we did and went to a park to eat. National parks were all still opened but we learned that Provincial ones were all closed. This park was closed, but I didn't want KFC mess on the clothes. So we ducked behind trees and got changed and ate lunch rather quickly I will add at this park.

We had some cool nights, but cooking in the cottages and warm showers seemed to warm them up quite nicely. No heat was required but the days if not too windy were perfect. Still bathing suit on the beach weather ( in the afternoon). Dearest loves to look at real estate. A hobby of his, ( keeps us in the poor house- property poor) This little baby was walking distance from our cottage going for $7.8 million!!! The people are from the states and come up two weeks in the year. My landlady tells us they loose about a foot of land a year to erosion. The locals chuckle about this place and say it will be in the ocean in about 20 years. Their beach wasn't even nice.
The price of gas when we left home was $120.9/liter, it had been cheaper in the states, New Brunswick was $129.9/liter and PEI was $125./liter. While we were there prices jumped to $133.2/liter in PEI, but what a shock when we crossed the bridge to New Brunswick it was $140./liter. I have never see it that high. In Quebec on route home $144.6/ liter!! Today here at home $118.2/liter. Sometimes home is the best place.
