Day 64, August 7: Borden Campground to Charlottetown to Northumberland Provincial Park, PEI

We had to pass through Charlottetown again this morning after being there the previous evening having the wonderful evening described in the previous blog. The views of the farms and the rolling hills made an ordinary ride quite pleasant.

Aug7-spudsWe spent a few minutes in the city before finding the right exit that would take us directly to our destination, a 120 km ride.  This ride was very nice taking us on a secondary road with nice shoulders and very little traffic, with a couple of interesting market stops along the way.

Aug7-ChuckwagonOur campground is at the Wood Islands, located just 3 km from the ferry that we will be taking the next morning with a great view out over Northumberland Strait.

Aug7-woodsislandVery soon after our arrival I was thrilled when daughter Kelly and my three grandsons arrived at the site. It wasn’t long before I was playing catch at the site then to the beach for a swim…swim put on hold to many jelly fish. The boys went back to the site to get the bocce set and then it was game on…you can see where they loved to throw the pallino.

Aug7-BocceNext event was dinner and I think we were all ready for Hughs pasta  with Italian sausage…it was great. Jon had visited  Montague earlier and bought dessert which included a birthday cake for Jack who turned 11 yrs old the previous day and some drum sticks which went over well with everybody.
After a nice sit around the firepit we all headed for bed…Jon in the trailer and kelly and the boys in the tent.

Hugh and I planned for the 9:30 am ferry so we  all crashed early after another busy, or I guess just another day at the office .

Catch up tomorrow…Sid and Team!!
