Day 13 , Day 14 , Day 15, Day 16 - Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

Our first stop of the day was at Shediac, NB. The lobster capital of the world.  This giant lobster is on display behind the information center. (Picture by Bob Beitler)

This is a park in the Shediac town square. Their annual Lobster Festival was going on this weekend, so they were ramping up for a busy festival.

Just a couple of pretty lakes we drove by on our way to PEI (Prince Edward Island)

The Confederation Bridge looked very imposing as we approached it.

Once on the bridge it was a beautiful sight. The water was calm and the sky almost cloudless.

From a postcard we purchased.

Most of us stopped at Gateway Village directly across the bridge. It had an information building and many other stores to lure us into.

We are staying at a the Cavendish KOA on PEI.

Ed and Pat Casey joined the caravan today.  They had previously been on the Gasp

Today was a rest day for most everyone. Harold Powers takes some time out with his two dogs.

Tancy and Rick Leonard take some time to catch up on their reading.

Barry and Bob our wagonmaster and tailgunner take a rest break.

Jim and Carol Harmes take advantage of the OK at the park to wash their rig and their car.

Pat Corley & Rae Anne Strahl went into Stanley Bridge,PEI to hear Mary Smith & Friends perform in what was once a church, later a Masonic Hall & later purchased by a group of community women to be used as a community center. Every night but Sat. there is a Ceilidh (pronounced Kaylee) held in this historic building.

The fiddle is the primary instrument used but mandolins, guitars & drums are also incorporated into the performance along with singing and stomp dancing. A 9 yo girl performed the stomp dances. The Ceilidh is of Scottish origin and one can be found any night in most of the towns around PEI.
