    Charlottetown Restaurants

    I ate here in Sept. 2008. A popular dish here is the Brown Bag Fish and Chips, at $10.99, so I ordered that. Three pieces of battered fish come with french fries, served in a paper bag, on a plate. While it was good, I wasn't blown away. I think the fish was fresh (forgot to ask), but it was a better value for the money than an equivalent...

  • Driving

    Borden-Carleton Transportation

    Driving is the easiest way to get to and around Borden-Carleton. It's also the best way to cross the Confederation Bridge. There is also a shuttle going across the bridge for those who have no other way to go (bikes and pedestrians are not allowed on the bridge) and I think it runs every 15 minutes or so.

    Prince Edward Island Warnings and Dangers

    I visited Prince Edward Island in July 2014 and I should preface this tip by saying that I had a thoroughly wonderful trip and hope to return very soon. This is not intended to be negative at all but merely a "word to the wise".I am not sure what I was actually expecting in terms of weather. I think I had a notion that because the scenery is much...

    Prince Edward Island Favorites

    Canada is a country I had often thought of visiting but only really in abstract terms. My problem is that it is so vast that public transport is not really an option and I do not drive a car so transportation was always going to be an issue. Certainly there are organised tours utilising buses and / or trains but that type of trip would be total...

    You've already heard the story of us being invited into the "closed to get ready for Halloween" haunted mansion, it's on the intro to my Kensington page. Down below, you'll see admission and hours of operation information. It's probably a good thing I hadn't seen this before driving to Kensington, or we'd have not gotten our free tour. PLEASE DO...

    Summerside Restaurants

    The Deckhouse is a restaurant on the Summerside waterfront. It has a fishing-boat theme to it. The time I was there, there were a lot of families with children eating there so it was noisy at times, but I like the place. The menu includes seafood (fish and chips, clam chowder, PEI mussels, etc), as well as pub food (nachos, potato skins, etc)...

Prince Edward Island National Park

  • Fox on the Run In PEI National Park

    Prince Edward Island National Park Off The Beaten Path

    Finding wildlife on a trip is never easy but in this case it jumped right out in front of us. Red foxes are an infrequent occurrence in PEI. Typically they either build a home into the sand dunes along PEI or into a hole or small cave in the forest or lowlands area of the province. This guy must have wanted to be an actor. He was willing to pose up...
