On day # 2 in PEI, we planed to visit the North Coast town of Cavendish to visit everything to do with Anne of Green Gables – Avonlea Village, Green Gables and the author’s home. After breakfast we walked the dogs, made the tea for the truck and were on the road by 10:00.
The trip to the North Coast is about 30 miles, which with the poor condition of the roads is about 45 – 50 minutes driving. When about 15 minutes from the campground the rain started, fairly light initially, but within a few minutes the heavens opened and we had what seemed like golf ball sized rain drops. What the heck, we only got 2 more days, so we decided to continue.
We were driving through Kensington when Judi remembered reading about a highly recommended bakery, so we pulled over and punched the address into the GPS. It’s behind us, but only 1/2 mile, so we decided to try it out. By this time the rain is pounding down and we don’t have jackets in the car, since it was sunny at the campground. Well just going from the truck to the door and back we were more than slightly wet. Armed with fresh bread, scones and cinnamon rolls, we hoped getting wet would be worth it.
Back in the truck we soldiered on towards the North Coast and enroute we are starting to get 2nd thoughts, so Judi checked the weather forecast on her phone. Heavy rain all day was the bad news, so we decided to just take a quick drive to scope out the area and return tomorrow.
On return to the campground, the sun was still shining, amazing weather differences in a mere 30 miles.
Sunset at Confederation Bridge
When we finished dinner it looked like we may have a great sunset, so we jumped in the truck and headed down to Borden Harbour. The following photographs were taken alongside the Confederation Bridge on the PEI side.
