Trip to PEI: Day 2

Hi guys! My second day on Prince Edward Island was full of activity and new things.

First, we visited the Anne of Green Gables house! I've always loved that series of books, and the mini series was really good too. We took a look around inside the house, which was pretty cool. You could look into all of the rooms, and they even had everyone's bedroom laid out! Of course, Anne is fictional, so this isn't really her house. But it's still fun to imagine!

Next, we went on the Haunted Woods trail outside of the house. In the book, Anne imagines the woods to be haunted, and they certainly look like they could be. The trees don't have any needles and it's dark and prickly and creepy. As a girl, L.M. Montgomery, the author of the books, thought the woods were haunted, too!

As I walked along the path, I felt kind of creeped out! I didn't actually believe they were haunted, but then again...

Eventually, the trail opened up to the road, and we could walk along the sidewalk to the cemetery where L.M. Montgomery is buried. Her grave is surrounded with flowers and hedges, and it's all very beautiful. 

After we checked out the gift shop and were done looking at Green Gables, we took a drive to West Point to see the lighthouse and the beaches.

It was huge! And really pretty, too! It's also an inn, so we could have spent the night there. Word has it that's it haunted, though, and we were already camping. You could go to the top of the lighthouse and look out at the cape, but Skye is very afraid of heights, and it was really crowded. 

We spent most of our time on the beach there, Cedar Dunes. The sand there was even redder than at the national park, and it had all these perfectly smooth little rocks! I just had to grab a few to take home. The water was also uber-duber warm--even warmer than the water at the national park! I was amazed!

Pretty soon, we had to leave the lighthouse to get back to the campground. I wanted to watch the sunset there again! It was just as incredible as the first night. 

I had so much fun going sightseeing and swimming on my second day at PEI. It's such a beautiful island! Keep watching to see more of my adventures on Prince Edward Island!

This has been Dani, dabbling at Green Gables and Cedar Point. Over and out!


  1. Salut Dani,
    I am so jealous! I've never been to Canada, but maybe I will someday. I did a ton of traveling early on in the year, but I have the itch to travel again. I can't stay in one place for too long!

    1. Hi Sabine!
      This was technically my second time in Canada, although the first time I was only there for about an hour (just passing through to look at Niagara Falls). I would highly recommend going at some point in your life. I've seen a lot of your posts about your travels! You've been so many cool places--I'm so jealous! ;)

  2. Ahh, Dani! I screamed when I saw your blog post - PEI is one of my favorite places in the world! That's actually where I met my best friend, Nathalie. Our families were both vacationing on PEI at the same time. Nathalie's very Anne-obsessed, and when I met her, she was dressed in an Anne costume! She can pull it off effortlessly with her red hair. Anyway, I'm so desperate to venture back. I didn't get to see the beach on my last trip since I was so busy seeing other things. The red beach is so gorgeous! I loved seeing it in your photos.


    1. Hey Sophie!
      PEI has become one of my favorite places in the world, too! I'm very partial to the beaches. I didn't meet any friends there, though. That sounds so cool! I love making friends in new places. I kept thinking about my friend Deirdre when we went to Green Gables--her hair is a little more auburn than carrot, but she could have played a good Anne had she donned a costume!
