We headed further west along the north beach, up near Cavendish, the town made famous by the Anne books written by L M Montgomery. PEI has very red soil which shows up in the cliffs, the farmers' fields, and along the beach.
The flat stones inspired someone to make a couple of inukshuks.
A barnacle covered piece of driftwood looks like some ancient sea monster.
The sea grass on the lumpy sand dunes reminds me of an old carpet put out to air.
A sturdy boardwalk climbs up over the dunes and down the other side.
The beaches just go on for miles and miles.
Driving back to Charlottetown, the scenery is very much like our home area except for frequent glimpses of the ocean. It really is a pretty place to visit. We didn't visit Green Gables, although we drove by it, but tourists, especially from Japan, love to see the farm that inspired the books. The restaurants and cottages for rent have names inspired by the books, and, at the farm itself, a range of activities for children and adults aim to take you back to the beginning of the 20th century PEI.
