Honeymoon Update

The Honeymooners have arrived in Prince Edward Island and we are really living it up Canadian style! Our trip took about (aboot) 8 hours and I (Mrs. Kopishke) got to drive over the Confederation Bridge (11 miles). We are staying at the Heritage Harbor House Inn, a B&B in Charlottetown, the capital of PEI. We are walking distance from shops, restaurants, and the COWS ice cream shop which rivals Ben and Jerry's!

Watch out Lance Armstrong, here come Mr. and Mrs. Kopishke!

On Tuesday, we hit the Confederation Trail. The trail runs from one end of PEI to the other (aboot 273 Km) but we hopped on outside of Charlottetown and rode 28 Km (aboot 17.5 miles). When we returned home we both took a long awaited nap and then set off for Victoria-by-the Sea for supper. We followed Blue Heron drive to Victoria and stopped at Port-la-Joye lighthouse along the way.

In Canada all the lighthouses look the same!

We also saw some amazing landscapes on our way to Victoria. One that really blew our mind was the amount of costal farmland property. We mean, potato fields or cow pastures up to the edge of the ocean!

Matt, my guiding light!

In Victoria, we visited a candle shop and took some photos of the lighthouse there. We ate at 40 Knots, a restaurant on the pier where I had my first Molson Canadian beer...no twin label technology though!

Today, Wednesday, we hopped in the car and drove Blue Heron drive towards Anne of Green Gables land. We stopped in North Rustico, a small lobstering village, along the way. We visited the tiny museum there where we learned that they still use wooden traps to catch lobsters.

After North Rustico, we headed to Cavendish, the home of Green Gables. We walked through the barn and surrounding forests. We even walked down "Lovers Lane" and "The Haunted Woods".
