We have been fortunate enough to continue to have beautiful fall days so we chose to do a road trip to PEI’s capital city, Charlottetown.
Our first sign that we were going to have a good day was when we managed to find some free parking for the day in the historic centre, not an easy task. After a short walk along the waterfront the first stop was the most dominant building in that part of the city, St. Dunston’s Basilica Cathedral.
After our drive there and initial exploration we had lunch in the Olde Dublin Pub. Great beer, ok food, and a great view of the back of the Basilica.
As I mentioned in a previous post, there is a lot of decorating going on around the province in relation to harvest time and Halloween. Part of that is the City of Charlottetown is having a Scarecrow Festival. There are more then 1000 scarecrows around the city. It certainly makes for some interesting viewing as you walk.
I look forward to returning to Charlottetown after brushing up on more of our founding history. The old centre is filled with connections to that historic time and it seems like a waste not to seize the opportunity.
Isn’t it great to be travelling and blogging again?
In case you don’t know we sold our house and everything in it and left calgary end of May. We’ve been making our way across this great country of
ours in our self converted Campervan we have affectionately named Radvan.
Here’s the link to our blog if you’d like to follow along.
It was fun to read your post from PEI. We visited there several months ago and had a really awesome time there. I’m sure it’s just as beautiful in the fall!

That is awesome to hear! It is truly gorgeous here in the fall. Enjoy your travels.
Do you think the people in the Basilica enjoy the view of the pub? “Great ambience, service okay, and a great view of the Olde Dublin Pub”
