We thought of Canada 150 as the perfect timing to visit The Birthplace of Confederation – Charlottetown. Since we’re expecting baby #1, we didn’t want to travel too far for the “babymoon“, but still wanted an adventure. Prince Edward Island satisfied our wanderlust and seafood appetite while being close enough to home.
We did a 4 day-3 night trip, and here are some fun things we managed to squeeze into the short trip. If we had slightly more time, we would have spent a day relaxing and getting a tan at the Cavendish beach.
Visited the Confederation Bridge.
Strolled along the Charlottetown Habour.
Got fresh lobster dinner and fish & chips at the famous Water Prince Corner Shop.
They kept a rare blue lobster to show visitors!
Hunted for lighthouses.
Visited the Green Gables Heritage Place. Bonus – free for Canada 150!
Dined at the Blue Mussel Cafe in North Rustico.
Lobster mac & cheese…. MMMMMM.
Joined a lobster tour. Top Notch Charters was extremely children-friendly. They engaged the kids onboard to help with steering the boat, bringing in the lobster traps etc.
Last but not least… Cow’s ice cream and factory tour! Their waffle cone is MMMMMMM.
After four full days of seafood feasting, I came home looking forward to some chicken.
It is quite crazy to think that for our next flight/trip, we’ll be a family of three!
