What a crazy day it was to drive around PEI. There were buckets of rain and then blue sky. The rain roamed about all day.

pei scenic coastal drives

After a quick breakfast at Tim Horton's we did some of the Points East drive from Charlottetown to Montague.
First stop was Point Prim in the sunshine.





Then a stop at a bottle village where donations went to the Children's Hospital.






Some mailboxes along the road back from Point Prim





Then the skies opened!



 Next stop was Point Bear and the mosquitoes were out in full force!





We stepped out into the torrential downpour at Woods Island.




Watching theNorth Humberland  ferry come in from  Caribou Nova Scotia.










Montague for lunch
I love this free lending library!






Delicious lunch here, best seafood chowder according to John and the PEI Shellfish Festival!!


Along the banks of the Montague River, stands a historic home that was built over 150 years ago. This early circa 1850, two story building has been connected with the first commercial history of Montague, being known as one of the earliest general stores first operated in the town.

Restoration transformed the building into a quaint Restaurant in 1995. This family owned and operated restaurant has won awards such as:
The PEI Shellfish Festival award for our outstanding seafood chowder.

We decided that we would go to Cavendish to Green Gables after lunch as it was getting late.


French River - we drove past this and made a U-turn back as did the two bikers in front of us. Absolutely stunning view and the light was perfect AND not raining!!



Green Gables! Stop by Saturday for lots more photos!


Malpeque - home of the oyster Malpeques have taken the world by storm in the past twenty years, and now rival Bluepoints as most common restaurant oyster, partly because they are affordable.



A stop at the PEI Brewing Company to get a glass to add to our collection.



This is easily the most relaxed, pleasant brewery we have visited.



A study in black and white.



Dinner was at the Merchant Man snow crab legs and lobster - absolutely delicious!!!!

  2. Friends have a house on the side road down to the Point Prim lighthouse so it was fun to see your shots!

  3. A beautiful tour of such a beautiful province. Being fond of lighthouses, there never seems a shortage of them for me.
