I had 7 full days on the Island which meant plenty of time to relax and do some day trips. The Island is small… to put it into context you can go from one point (extreme East) to the other (northwest) in under 4 hours. But instead of doing it all at once we picked going to the extreme east to Souris, PEI since none of us had been before. We were not disappointed. The beach was gorgeous and had a small boardwalk to walk along. There were some little shops to visit and there was a bakery (didn’t make my top 5). As it turns out we decided to try a bakery in each new location we went to. Luckily I lost 4 pounds on the trip because that was way more dessert than any one person should ever eat. We went to Montague, St. Peters Bay and passed through Morell heading home.

Our next little adventure took me back to North Rustico – which I think is the cutest little town. So I did not mind. We hit the bakery since we knew we wouldn’t be disappointed and did a little walk around the water. We visited The Dunes which is a specialty store it has some unique items, some mass produced and some handmade. The gardens on the grounds are also quite stunning. A good place to check out when you’re on the island.
And finally we went to the extreme Northwest of the Island to Tignish. On the way we stopped for a quick look at a local antique shop. The start of the drive was pretty boring – no water views just trees for miles. Finally we found the coastal route and jumped on it. We did a tiny tour of this little fishing town before hitting the bakery and heading home.
On Saturday the 21st I took off from the Island with Peanut and the pups and headed to Dieppe, New Brunswick where I would stay with my cousin Denis, his gorgeous wife Lindsay and their adorable son Connell. I had a great visit with my Cousin Chantal and her son Damian and ate some super yummy food from Mansu BBQ and Sunday I spent the day with my cousins and had a tasty home cooked Chicken dinner. I was a little spoiled.
Thank you for following along. Part 3 of the East Coast trip takes us to Nova Scotia. It was absolutely beautiful. Peggy’s Cove is breathtaking – a must visit if you’re heading East.
