Iles de la Madeleine

     The Captain and I took a little trip a while ago, and it has taken me a while to just sit down and write about it. Before I begin though, I would like to thank my readers for your very warm and kind comments on the previous blogs.

     We left on the 30th of July for Souris, Prince Edward Island, from where we would catch the ferry to Iles de la Madeleine. Neither of us had been there before, although the captain had flown over it during his years in the airforce.

     We took a ferry from Nova Scotia to PEI, and stayed at the Lighthouse and Beach Motel that evening. This is the view from the porch looking down across the grass, and Sheep's Pond.

Since we had a few hours the next day, before the ferry would be leaving, we visited some friends, and then went the East Point Lighthouse. On the Admission price list, there were the initials "A.W.E." and when we asked what they stood for the nice young man told us it meant "Adults With Experience", that is, seniors. I like that.

Then we headed for the Souris dock as we were to be there an hour before the ferry left.

So long PEI

We are churning, on a five hour ferry ride to the Iles.
So much to tell you, but not tonight. I had to make the effort to start this. Now it won't be so difficult to get back to it.


  1. What a beautiful place, Bonnie. I love the French names (so familiar to me down here in Louisiana). I sincerely hope that being there brought you a level of peace. <3

    1. Hi Stacy. The islands are absolutely beautiful. I could have stayed, and yes, there were times when peace enveloped me. More to come on our trip.

  2. Oh, I love PEI.
    Hope you had a great time!

    1. We did, Margie. I have some more places in PEI that I will get to eventually. I need to get myself back into 'writing mode'.

  3. Super photos, Bonnie, and it's so good to see you back blogging. Sorry to be late getting here, but life has been a bit busy over the past couple of weeks.
