Boston and New England Cruise - 13 days from October 3rd to 15/2016.....


On Wednesday, after breakfast in the Dining Room, we went on the Holland America tour ($119.95) Best of Prince Edward Island.   We left at 9:45 am, the tour lasted for 6 hours, the bus was just about full, and lunch was included.   We must have outrun Hurricane Matthew, because today was nice. 
First, we went to the PEI side of Confederation Bridge – the rate to drive over this bridge is $46.50/car there and back.


Then a quick visit to the Ann of Green Gables shopping center – we bought a few souvenirs and pressed some American pennies.

Then on to the Anne of Green Gables Museum – we had a boxed lunch here  - roast beef bun, cheese, and two homemade cookies.   If you buy a book here, a member of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s family will sign it for you.

Then on the bus to a National Park, some majestic cliffs, and also stopped at a lobster fishing spot. 

 
We went to the PEI Preserve Company, which sold homemade jam and souvenirs.  Although a nice spot, if you were not interested in buying, a long wait here.


We really liked this tour - it was very interesting to see Prince Edward Island.   

For dinner, I had chilled strawberry soup, roasted rosemary chicken with stuffing, orange sorbet and mousse cake.

At 6 o’clock, the Ship sailed on to the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
