We are thoroughly enjoying Prince Edward Island. The plan to thwart the mosquitoes worked. Regis bought a screened shelter so we could enjoy the outdoors in spite of the mosquitoes. We have not had to use it. We are able to enjoy the outdoors without unnecessary molestation by bugs.
This is Anne of Green Gables territory. We drove around the island and there are lots of places associated with the author of Anne of Green Gables. If you read the author’s works, you would be able to enjoy the areas that inspired her. Sadly, I have not read her works but intend to do so now that I have been here.
The dirt is red here because of iron oxide. It’s very interesting and makes Dart more patriotic. He is already blue and white, so the red dirt on his paws adds the final red color.
When we drove around the island we saw LOTS of aquaculture here. We’re are pretty sure they are raising lots of shellfish around here.
We went kayaking today. We can launch from the campground. We left as the tide was going out and had to drag our kayaks out to the water. It was nothing compared to what we had to do bringing the kayaks back across the flats. Nevertheless, we saw lots of life in the water. There were lots of crabs and other shellfishes and baby fishes. Once we got on the water we saw some magnificent maroon jelly fishes. Wow it was beautiful! We saw a crab that had sea weed wrapped around it like a boa. It was very cute. Next time we will be smart enough to bring the cameras!
