Traversing the North Cape Coastal Drive of PEI . . .
Of course you can't see one side without exploring the other end of PEI. West Point Lighthouse area has numerous large windmills. The Wind Energy Institute of Canada is a wind energy research station. I took some photos of one windmill that was dissembled and laying on the ground. I think the blades are called whale blades and they are humongous. The engine is large enough to walk around in.
- Some Thoughts . . .
- After spending two days on PEI, I can sum this place up in a few words. Potatoes, crows, wheat, Star of David on every house, no police, roads with potholes so big they shake your RV apart, road numbers change at every intersection and no idea of what road you are on till you have already made the turn, no restaurants, used car lots and garages everywhere. The local people are super nice but they can't give directions, so you can imagine we spent some time being lost. And you better be up to date on your metric system, because there is no such thing as gallons or miles. The money looks like something my grandchildren would be playing with - plastic and colorful. It is just a completely different lifestyle than we are accustomed to back home, but it is good to see other places so you can appreciate where you come from. I took tons of photos and it was really hard to select just a few for this blog.
