Aug 31st

Sometimes in life you feel like you just keep going in circles... That was our day on the 3st... and it all revolved around Highway # 13 (insert ominous music here).

We got up, as per usual, around 9:30, got a bite to eat and headed North along Highway #13. We passed PEI's one and only "Ski Resort" Brookvale Alpine Winter Activity Park...


(there's a 250 foot slope!)


Thereafter we headed directly on up to Burlington to visit a childhood memory favoutie...


Woodleigh Replicas...

Here is Yorkminster Abby...


As you can see we brought along our trust travel companion Leo the Bear. (He travels whenever we do... He's been to Toronto, Québec City 5 times, Halifax twice, France and now PEI...)While he's not in a lot of pictures of this trip, he was the START of the show at Woodleigh, as things were just his size...


The Pillory, in front of Dunvegan Castle.

Didier...


Misster-Kitty...

... and Leo...


Dunvegan Castle...


Didier at Dunvegan ...


Loook up, look waaaay up... Leo conquers Dunvegan Castle...

...Leo at the base of Neilson's Column...

... Leo staddles a connon at the Tower of London...

I told you... he stole the show!

Later we took a strole through the gardens. The pod paddle boat pond is now a water lily pond, absolutelt bussing with damsle and dragon flies!


After our tour of the park we mooooooooooved on up to the Cavendish Boardwalk and went to...


Oh you people are really starting to catch on! You can damned well bet we were not going to miss having an Ice Cream at the original COWS Ice Cream store!


We then walked around the board walk, buying more souvenirs, and t-shirts, including 6 Cow's T-Shirts and 2 PEI Dirt Shirts...


Then back down the Highway #13 to the cottage where we picked up Mom and Dad and headed ... yup, you guessed it, back UP the Highway #13 to North Rustico, where my parents wanted to take us for a fantastically incredible Lobster Feast at the Fisherman's Wharf.



We first were served Seafood Chowder, then had plates full of steamed mussels and then a 60 foot salad bar and then the main feast of Lobster... I don't think we've ever eaten so much... we were so full that we were all groaning and huffing as we made our way back to the car... to take the Highway #13 back to the cottage... When we got home we were all so incredibly full that we could do nothing but just collapse on the chairs and sofa... and soon all waddled off, stomachs still full, to slumberland...
