Not a long blog tonight or one full of facts, figures or historical information. That will come tomorrow after our visit to the Center of Charlottetown.
Every time we tick something off the bucket list, something else goes on, but this particular item has been there for quite some time though not sure if we can ever pull it off. It is on Di’s list but Fraser is coming round to her idea but probably only because it probably won’t come off.

So guess where our driving route too is today??
Around the south eastern shore of PEI. There are fifty light houses around the the coast of PEI but not all of them are operational any more. We got to three of them only as we would need at least another six weeks to get round to them all.
We passed many a farm selling pumpkins and gourds for Halloween which is still 30 days away.
What was great to see was the honesty boxes. You don’t see that very much any more.
We also came across this rather peculiar tree!!
As you can see, we had magnificent weather today though there was that cool sea breeze which made us hustle for our wind jackets.
To do PEI justice, you would need a week to ten days but this trip has given us enough of a taste that should the opportunity become available, we would certainly come back here for a longer visit.
PEI is a cross between New Zealand and England. There are no hills but lots of rolling green countryside. It is obvious that they are house proud people as we saw very little evidence of dishevelled dwellings. What has surprised us is that there are no fences between properties – they must all love their neighbours. This also begged the question as to how they stopped their pets being run over.
