Brudenell Kayaking and Panmure Island Lighthouse


I'm ashamed to admit, in the past two years I have not gotten in the canoe my parents trucked all the way up to Prince Edward Island. So maybe it's surprising that I suddenly decided we should try kayaking. Outside Expeditions offers group kayaking and lessons at two spots on the island - one at Cavendish, near Anne's land, and one on the Eastern side of the island, on the Brudenell River.

The Great Canadian Soap Co.

The Great Canadian Soap Co. was one of those touristy stops that I just hadn't gotten around to visiting yet. Until this past summer! I wasn't convinced it was going to be worth visiting, probably because it seems to be so popular and I'm contrarian like that. But I decided I needed a bunch (10+) of relatively inexpensive souvenirs and goat soap seemed like a decent bet.

At Home on Prince Edward Island

When I write about Prince Edward Island, especially about the time I spend at my parents' home, I sort of feel guilty, like I'm like bragging about an experience most travelers won't have. But each year I visit, I discover new things to love about the island and indulge in the things I already know - like the amazing food, the private beaches, the birds and wildlife, the tucked-away harbours, and the view from my parents' cottage.
