After our visit to Port Medway we were scheduled to take the 11:00 AM ferry across the Bay of Fundy from Digby to St John.  You are required to arrive one hour before sailing or loose your reservation. Hwy 8 was the most direct route and would take about two hours travel time. Unfortunately, the smoke ...Read More...

Booking Boondoggles I discovered that I had booked the Magdalen ferry return at the same time (8:00PM) as the PEI ferry to Nova Scotia.  I learned that there is a standby lane on the ferry dock you can wait in and hopefully get on the boat in place of no-shows. We decided to give this a try and left ...Read More...

The boat is about 40 feet long and made of fiberglass. The captain and cruise guide spoke good English and were very nice ...Read More...

This morning was the best weather yet on the Islands. There are no bugs, no humidity and no need for heat or AC. The storm had passed, it was sunny, and for the first time there was very little wind. So it was a bad day for kite boarders. I made reservations to take to take a boat trip to Enter Island ...Read More...

Ferry Schedule Mixup Today I decided to check our return schedule to Nova Scotia. It seems I booked the ferry to Souris PEI at the same hour as the ferry from PEI to Nova Scotia. The ideal change was to take an earlier ferry to Souris but there were no available reservations. This meant staying another ...Read More...

The Ferry Ride The departure at 2:00AM didn't happen due to some kind of engine problem. We finally left at 4:00AM after 14 hours in the parking lot listening to the racket from the transport trucks. We watched a long DVD movie and then tried to sleep with little success. I used my hand held GPS ...Read More...

We arrived on the Island after driving 4.5 days and 1,900 miles.  The first challenge was to find the Cornwall/Charlottetown KOA.  The address was in the GPS but not the name. There were 3 listings with same address and the one I picked was on a dirt road and no KOA in sight. I called them on the phone ...Read More...

Why Visit Magdelen Early this year I was planning to revisit Newfoundland that because we had enjoyed there so much back in 2009. In thinking about the route I decided we would have to visit Prince Edward Island (PEI). This is the one of the ten provinces in Canada we have never been to in our lives. ...Read More...
