Fall Escapes To PEI – The Gentle Island

snowballs in AutumnAutumn is my favourite time to site see and for travelling. The transition between fall and winter is full of colours you don’t see any other time of the year.

Take the opportunity to travel to PEI and see the real beauty of the Island, it will take your breath away.

Travelling to PEI in the fall is perfect. It’s not scorching hot, even though it can get a little nippy in the late evenings and at night but I do most of my travelling in the day time when I can see the scenery anyways.

Now that there is no ferry from New Brunswick to PEI there is no waiting, just take the 14 km trip over the Confederation Bridge and you’re there in about 15 minutes.

If you still want to take a ferry ride you can head to Nova Scotia.

It’s a little late for the Fall Flavours Festival this year but keep it in mind for next year. One of my favour chefs, Micheal Smith, hosted the festival this year.

Hit The Autumn Trails

It’s fun walking or biking the many trails PEI has, at any time, but my preference is once the fall colours are showing. It’s just starting now and will only go on for the next few weeks. Then the winds that come with the late Autumn strip the trees clean of their beautiful coloured leaves.
