Cultural celebration! Photo / BARRETT & MACKAY

VISITORS TIPS Experience Prince Edward Island culture first hand! ONE ~ Fun for the whole family at Charlottetown Summerfest, including the largest fireworks display in eastern Canada. TWO ~ The Festival of Small Halls features internationally-acclaimed performers from PEI, Atlantic Canada and abroad. THREE ~ The Charlottetown Festival is always a visitor’s favourite. This year they’re adding Come-all-ye! to their lineup with Anne of Green Gables, The Full Monty and others. FOUR ~ Be at the Victoria Playhouse Festival and “Follow the Fiddler” as part of their 30th anniversary. FIVE ~ Take in the outdoor concerts at the PEI Bluegrass & Oldtime Music Festival.

YOU JUST KNOW some ideas are great ones as soon as you hear them. Strawberry shortcake. An afternoon nap. Buy one, get two free. Now you can add Island Fusion to that list. This province-wide cultural celebration will get the summer started in a big way. Highlights include the Rollo Bay Bluegrass Festival, Summerside Highland Gathering, PEI Fiddle Camp, Sunday Night Shenanigans, the Victoria Playhouse Festival, the Scotchfort Pow Wow, Canada Day festivities, College of Piping Ceilidhs, and Charlottetown Summerfest. Studio tours feature hands-on arts & crafts workshops. The Lighthouse Spotlight shines with artisans and musicians at lighthouse locations. Culinary boot camps welcome you into the world of master chefs. The Festival of Small Halls presents well over fifty performances on stage in more than two dozen rural communities. And don’t miss a brand new show “Come-all-ye!” All over the Island, musicians, dancers, storytellers, actors, and artisans will demonstrate their gifts and bring to life the rich culture that took root here long ago – and continues to flourish on Prince Edward Island. Island Fusion kicks off on June 16 and runs through July 3. For a complete list of events, visit www.tourismpei.com/fusion.

VISITORS TIPS You can find the perfect take-home memory, or try a hands-on craft project. ONE ~ Gateway Village promises a unique experience as you savour Island food products and shop from local artisans. TWO ~ The PEI Preserve Company offers everything from Celtic family tartan blankets to locally-made pottery and jewellery. THREE ~ The Dunes Studio Gallery in Brackley–fine Canadian artwork plus items from around the world. FOUR ~ Visit Spinnakers’ Landing in Summerside– check out hand-made jewellery at Celtic Mist and MaiYa Pearls. FIVE ~ In Charlottetown stroll down Victoria Row, visit a crafts gallery on Great George Street, then head to Peake’s Quay for more great Island crafts.

PEOPLE VISIT Prince Edward Island looking for unique experiences, and that certainly applies to the artwork and crafts created here. If it’s something specific you’re after, you’ll likely find it being made somewhere on the Island. And if you’d prefer to look over the offerings, be prepared for an incredible variety. Our skilled craftspeople are busy year-round, producing one-of-a-kind treasures you simply won’t find anywhere else. Our mills have woven creations made from the wool of their very own sheep and alpaca; the assortment of sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, and rugs is breathtaking. Pottery studios display and sell decorative and functional items. Seasoned woodworkers are turning cups and bowls, and producing carved masterpieces, even as you read this. Stained glass, wrought iron, handmade soaps? It’s all here. Painting, sculpture, photography, prints? How much time do you have? Watch the artisans as they work. Tour their workshops. Or sign up for an Authentic PEI Experience (see page 80) and try your hand at creating your own unique reminder of this one-of-a-kind place.

When you buy a souvenir, you’re purchasing a reminder of the place you visited. When you acquire something from a skilled artisan, you’re taking home a real part of the place -- its history, culture, and people. The number of artists producing masterful works of creativity here is startling. Each is waiting to share a piece of their beautiful Island. PEI handcrafted pottery Photo / CAMERA ART

Welcome to our Island AS PREMIER of Prince Edward Island, I would like to welcome you to our beautiful province. The green pastoral landscape and fresh waters make our Island way of life so unique and allow us to produce some of the tastiest food experiences found globally. For many years, the tourism and culture sector has been able to create authentic Island experiences for visitors of all ages to enjoy. For the 2011 season, we will expand our cultural tourism offerings by developing, packaging, and promoting an exciting new festival called Prince Edward Island Fusion. Our Visitor’s Guide will help you plan a memorable Prince Edward Island vacation. We look forward to being your hosts this year!

AS MINISTER of Tourism and Culture, I welcome you to Prince Edward Island. Our miles of sandy beaches are some of the best in the world. Our rich culture and heritage offer much to be seen and explored. I invite you to taste our fresh from the farm and sea culinary creations offered by local establishments. Our food products, award-winning chefs and warm Island hospitality are what sets us apart from our competitors. Fill your days with a scenic coastal tour, a golf game, an evening at the theatre, an Authentic PEI Experience, or a fun-filled family activity. I encourage you to make Prince Edward Island your next vacation destination. Discover why our visitors are already booking their return visit before they leave.

Time to eat! Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

VISITORS TIPS Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or fine cuisine, the right meal is right here. ONE ~ Order the seafood – the lobster, mussels and oysters can’t get any fresher! TWO ~ Cows Ice Cream has over 32 flavours served in handmade waffle cones, created one at a time! THREE ~ Gahan House & Brewery in historic downtown Charlottetown. Try their signature Brown Bag Fish & Chips with a handcrafted ale. FOUR ~ The Wind & Reef Restaurant at North Cape. Enjoy a panoramic view of the ocean while dining. FIVE ~ Potatoes, yes potatoes! The PEI potato has a unique flavour because of our rich red soil.

THERE ARE many advantages to a small island, especially this one. Food is one of the most important. The land here is rich, producing a bounty of fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, and dairy products. Our waters teem with fish, as well as lobster, oysters, and other shellfish. Ask almost anyone in the world where the best mussels come from, and they’ll tell you: Prince Edward Island. And because the distance between any two points on the Island is small, food doesn’t have to travel far from source to plate. Our farmers, beef producers, and fishermen provide the ingredients. And our award-winning chefs turn those fresh ingredients into culinary masterpieces. But it’s about more than a meal. We also have food experiences and events. Culinary Boot Camps bring you into state-of-the-art kitchens, where you’ll prepare and enjoy your own creations under the watchful eye of experienced chefs (culinarybootcamps.com). Or explore The Culinary Trail, an Island-wide series of itineraries complete with guidebook and map (www.peiflavours.ca). In fall, don’t miss the International Shellfish Festival, and more than a hundred events at the annual Fall Flavours Festival (www.fallflavours.ca). As we said, it’s about more than a meal. It’s about local and fresh, traditional and innovative. And it’s about time to eat!

Dunes Café, Brackley Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

There’s no better way to inspire envy among your shellfish-loving friends than to tell them you dined on the freshest possible PEI mussels. But if you’re looking to really impress them, discuss the distinction between Malpeques and Raspberry Points, or between Colville Bays and Lucky Limes. These and more “boutique” oyster brands can be enjoyed at many of our local restaurants and pubs. Oyster fishing Photo / ANN MACNEILL

Golf Heaven WHEN THE earliest Scottish settlers arrived on Prince Edward Island in the eighteenth century, they had no time to think about golf, a game their ancestors helped invent. Nor could they have imagined that PEI would one day become Canada’s most popular golf destination. But pros and amateurs from all over North America have been enjoying our courses for years. And now the rest of the world is starting to take notice.The International Association of Golf Travel Operators has chosen the Island as its 2011 Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year. Was it our breathtaking scenery, the quality and variety of our courses, or the value and convenience of playing here? All of the above, and more. Whether you’re a beginner, a regular player, or dreaming of turning professional, you’ll find just the right course, and fees lower than you might expect. Join us for the 3rd annual International Couples Golf Festival–five days of unforgettable play, fine dining, music, and great friends. And remember, PEI is Canada’s smallest province, so you’re never far from beaches, restaurants, theatre, or any of our thirty-two stunning courses. We’re sure that no matter where you’ve played before, your favourite round of golf is waiting for you somewhere on Prince Edward Island. See page 52 for more info and a list of PEI courses. For complete information, visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-golf.

VISITORS TIPS Choosing a beach presents a challenge when you’re on an island surrounded by them. Here are a few ideas: ONE ~ Cabot Beach Provincial Park where you can stroll from your campsite to the beach. TWO ~ Cavendish Beach in PEI National Park. Very popular family beach close to Cavendish attractions. THREE ~ At low tide explore the warm tidal pools at Arglye Shore. FOUR ~ The many beaches from Brackley to Dalvay in PEI National Park. FIVE ~ Reward yourself with a relaxing walk along the Basin Head beach to Bothwell beach. Look for starfish and listen for the Singing Sands.

PEI AND BEACHES. They’re practically synonyms. When visitors think of Prince Edward Island, many immediately imagine the smooth warm sand, red stone cliffs, soft blue sky, and the white-capped waves of the surrounding seas. We have eleven hundred kilometers of shoreline, much of it in the form of pristine beaches. It’s what English, French, Scottish, and Irish settlers first saw when they arrived here centuries ago. And often, it’s still the first place visitors head when they arrive today. Whether you prefer napping in the sun, splashing in the water, building a sandcastle, enjoying a leisurely stroll, or capturing that unforgettable sunset, there’s a beach that’s perfect for it. This Island is filled with many wonders – scenic beauty, cultural richness, diverse history, and a welcoming spirit. Wrapped around it all are those beaches. They are the boundary of Prince Edward Island, and what separates us from the rest of the world. See more about our beaches on page 48.

History comes alive Fanningbank,1864 / PEI ARCHIVES

VISITORS TIPS Experience Prince Edward Island culture first hand! ONE ~ Visit Green Gables National Historic Site, the original site that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to write Anne of Green Gables. TWO ~ Enjoy the evening ceilidh at Orwell Corner Historic Village. THREE ~ Visit the Acadian Museum in La Région Évangéline for a taste of Acadian history and culture. FOUR ~ The West Point Lighthouse Museum displays an extensive collection of lighthouse artifacts. FIVE ~ Founders’ Hall in historic Charlottetown where you can relive our nation’s history through displays, multimedia and holovisuals.

THE HISTORY of Prince Edward Island is like a rope made of intertwined strands. Each of those strands can be traced back to its roots: First Nations, French, English, Irish, and Scottish. Archeologists have found evidence of early Mi’kmaq settlements that date back thousands of years. Be sure to visit the Lennox Island Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre, as well as the annual Abegweit Pow Wow in August, to learn more about PEI’s aboriginal heritage. The earliest European settlers began arriving in the sixteenth century, and their influence is still evident in the names found on mailboxes, as well as the prevalence of Acadian and Celtic music and dance. A trip to La Région Évangéline will introduce you to the tumultuous history of the French pioneers. Then relive the birth of Canadian Confederation and all its drama by touring Province House and Founders’ Hall, where you’ll see and hear how the new nation was formed in Charlottetown in 1864. But to really understand how all of these strands have come together to form a strong culture, seek out the ceilidhs, community concerts, and Acadian supper theatres that take place all across the Island. And try not to miss the first annual Island Fusion Festival, June 16- July 3. It promises to become an exciting part of PEI tradition, another strand in a long and proud history.

Let’s just play! Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

VISITORS TIPS From water parks to sandcastles, this is the place for family fun. ONE ~ North Cape Wind Energy Centre, walk up close to the giant windmills and visit the interpretive centre to learn about wind energy. TWO ~ Avonlea Village, travel back in time and surround yourself with PEI’s favourite story, Anne of Green Gables. THREE ~ Basin Head Day Park features a lifeguarded white-sand beach, a gift shop and ice cream stand. FOUR ~ The Bottle houses, in Cap-Egmont features life-size buildings made of 25,000 bottles! FIVE ~ Cows Creamery Factory Tours to see Cows Ice Cream being made and, maybe best of all, have a sample!

AS YOUNG children, we lived to play. Having fun was our job and we were good at it. Then we grew up, and play became recreation – hiking, camping, sailing. All great activities, but there’s still that child inside of us who just wants to play. Prince Edward Island is the perfect place for family vacations because it’s easy to find the right balance. Birdwatching and nature walks? Of course. But we also have bumper boats, waterslides, and go-karts. When was the last time you went horseback riding? Have you ever taken a ride on a mini-train? We have paintballing, laser tag, and even hot air balloon rides. Do you remember the excitement when you were about to board your first ferris wheel or roller coaster? You can relive that magic at one of several amusement parks. And if you love ice cream, you’ve sure come to the right place. Finish your day with a round of mini-golf or an evening cruise. Recreation? There’s plenty of time for that tomorrow. Today, let’s be kids again. Let’s just play. For more great ideas, visit www.tourismpei.com/attractions.

There are lots of fun activities on PEI that may not spring readily to mind. Like dresssing up in period costumes and posing for an old-fashioned photograph. There’s free outdoor theatre at the Confederation Centre. Or you can climb to the top of a lighthouse. Or, how about taking part in a potato sack race?

Walk in our shoes Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

VISITORS TIPS Islanders are eager to share their way of life with you in an Authentic PEI Experience. ONE ~ The Great Canadian Soap Co. has demonstrations on how they make their unique goat soap products. TWO ~ Explore the shore beach combing for sea glass, shells and other gems. THREE ~ Climb aboard a real lobster boat, haul traps with Island fishermen, and enjoy a hard-earned meal! FOUR ~ Many artisans offer demonstrations on how they craft their art. Some offer workshops, like Right off the Batt Pottery in Central Bedeque. FIVE ~ Digging for Dinner. The tide is out. You have a spade in one hand and a bucket in the other. Now learn how to dig clams.

MOST VACATION spots are places to visit. You take some nice pictures and buy a few souvenirs. On Prince Edward Island, you’ll find a unique way of life that you can casually observe. Or you can take part in it. From North Cape to East Point and everywhere in between, chefs, artisans, musicians, farmers, fishermen, and a host of others are waiting to share their stories, and help you experience the life of an Islander. Imagine catching and cooking your own lobster. Forging a piece of folk art from recycled metal. Weaving a family keepsake, learning an Acadian step dance, or dabbling in watercolour paint. There’s even a whole series of Culinary Boot Camps devoted to helping you prepare and enjoy your own food masterpiece. In fact, the list of activities continues to grow each year. We call them Authentic PEI Experiences and we’re pretty sure you’ll want to come back and do them again. On Prince Edward Island, we like when people pay us a visit. But we love it when they walk in our shoes, and take home a little piece of our lives, too. For more information, see www.tourismpei.com/pei-experiences.

Anne and her Island WHEN THE NOVEL Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908, most people could only dream of visiting its magical setting. As the book became popular around the world, it’s likely that many readers had no idea where Prince Edward Island was. They may have even wondered, “Is it a real place?” Today, millions of the book’s fans have made the trip to PEI and discovered the land that captivated Anne in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s stories. And for those who just can’t get enough of their favourite red-headed girl, or the woman who created her, there are Anne-related attractions all over the Island. First, of course, is Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™, Canada’s longest running musical. In Cavendish, you’ll find Green Gables, Avonlea Village, and Montgomery’s Homestead, where the writer’s descendants still live. Lower Bedeque is home to the schoolhouse where the author taught, and in July there’s the L.M. Montgomery Festival. If you love Anne, you too will feel right at home on her Island. For much more, visit www.tourismpei.com/anne-of-green-gables.

VISITORS TIPS After a hundred years and a birthday party that lasted for months, Anne shows no sign of slowing down. Here are a few tips for ideas to keep up with her: ONE ~ Explore the house, and even walk the haunted wood, at Green Gables in PEI National Park. TWO ~ Shop at the Anne of Green Gables Store and take home a special memory. THREE ~ Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ has been thrilling Anne fans for 47 years. FOUR ~ Enjoy a day of family fun at Avonlea Village in Cavendish. FIVE ~ Visit the Lucy Maud Montgomery Birthplace in New London.

Take it outside! Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

VISITORS TIPS Here are some specific ideas for stretching your legs – and arms! ONE ~ Try a walking trail: Bubbling Springs in Dalvay; MacPhail Woods in Orwell; and Black Marsh Trail at North Cape to name a few. TWO ~ Cycle from Mount Stewart to St. Peters on the Confederation Trail. Enjoy the views of St. Peters Bay. THREE ~ Go camping and end the day with a campfire after the sun sets. FOUR ~ Learn to kayak! Tours are available whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler. FIVE ~ Beach combing is a popular and relaxing activity for all ages.

PEOPLE HERE always seem to be heading outside. Maybe that’s because there’s so much to do out there. It’s a cyclist’s paradise, with gently rolling hills and gorgeous scenery that seems to change at every turn. For hikers, there’s plenty of wilderness. And walkers and runners love the Confederation Trail’s 357 kilometres (221 miles) of flat, groomed surface. Of course, there’s plenty of golf, horseback riding, and walking tours. Are you more of a water person? Prince Edward Island is a canoeing, kayaking, boating dream, with countless bays, coves, and inlets to explore. We have deep-sea and freshwater fishing, with many guided and charter services available. And if you still haven’t had enough maritime activity, there’s snorkeling, swimming, seal-watching, and even parasailing. Remember, our waters are the warmest you’ll find north of the Carolinas. And our beaches are pristine and uncrowded. No matter how you spend your day, the perfect ending is a night in one of our many campgrounds, where fresh air and the sound of waves will lull you to a well-earned sleep. Be sure to get plenty of rest: there’s still a lot more to do out there. For a full list of activities, visit www.tourismpei.com/outside.

PEI is the perfect place to learn a new activity. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try kayaking or sailing? There are lots of experts here, eager to teach you.

VISITORS TIPS Seven of Prince Edward Island’s lighthouses are open to the public –why not take a day or two and follow our Lighthouse Lover’s Tour? ONE ~ At the East Point Lighthouse you can climb to the top to see the view, it’s worth the effort! TWO ~ The Victoria Rangelight houses two different lights. THREE ~ Point Prim Lighthouse is PEI’s only round lighthouse. FOUR ~ The Wood Islands Lighthouse greets visitors arriving by ferry. FIVE ~ Tour inside the Cape Bear Lighthouse, where the first distress signals from the Titanic were heard.

WHETHER YOU’RE approaching from sea or land, a lighthouse is a welcome sight. It helps guide boats to safety, calling out through darkness, fog, and storm. It represents stability, as strong and reliable as the rock it stands upon. It’s unique and beautiful, reaching into the sky with silent grace, like a needle pinning shore to ocean. And it offers a view like no other, unmarred by buildings and billboards. There is nothing else in the world quite like them, and if you’re one of those people who’s inexplicably drawn to lighthouses, you’ve come to the right place. Prince Edward Island has more than 50 of these structures dotting its ragged coastline. More than 40 still function as navigational aids, and seven are open to the public. The lighthouses of PEI: different heights and shapes, varying colours and designs. Each is unique, with its own history and story to tell. But they do share one common element. They all offer their welcoming light to anyone who seeks it. Visit www.tourismpei.com/lighthouses.

The lighthouse at West Point is well-known for its distinctive black and white stripes and the beautiful beach it overlooks. But you may not know that it’s open to the public, and includes nine guestrooms, a restaurant, gift shop and a museum!

A culinary treasure! The annual PEI ADAPT Council’s “Taste Our Island” Award is presented to a restaurant that has achieved a level of excellence, while using and promoting local products. In just four years, The Pearl in North Rustico has been a finalist three times, taking home the award for 2011. Infused with the creative spirit of owner Maxine Delaney and the culinary mastery of Chef Lanny MacLeod, The Pearl welcomes guests to its rusticelegant, art-filled dining room, and nourishes them with unforgettable food and drink. The building itself has been completely renovated with paintings, sculpture, fixtures, and furnishings from all over PEI. That’s appropriate, because the menu is also constructed almost entirely from the Island’s delicious bounty. Although the menu changes based on seasonal availability and Maxine’s inspiration, what remains consistent is freshness, unique flavours, and a passion for exceeding expectations. So while you’re at The Pearl eagerly awaiting your Raspberry Point Oysters or Basil Marinated Heirloom Tomato Steak, take a peek through the window and you may just spot the chef outside. He isn’t out there to enjoy the spectacular view. He’s handpicking herbs and edible flowers from the backyard garden–and making sure your meal is truly a taste of the Island.

TASTE OUR ISLAND AWARD With the largest number of nominations yet, competition for the 2011 award highlighted the best Prince Edward Island has to offer. See more on www.peiadapt.com. Maxine Delaney and Chef Lanny MacLeod of The Pearl are this year’s winner. The restaurant in scenic North Rustico is open every evening at 5 pm, and for Sunday Brunch from 10 to 2, from Victoria Day weekend to midOctober. Visit their website www.thepearlcafe.ca for a sample menu, reviews, special events, and much more information.

VISITORS TIPS Prince Edward Island is famous for its scenic landscape–have your camera ready when you tour our coastal drives! ONE ~ The view of the Confederation Bridge is spectacular from the church parking lot in Carleton. TWO ~ The drive past Cape Wolfe to the beach and lighthouse at West Point will showcase some magnificent cliff views. THREE ~ The fishing village of North Rustico should be included in your itinerary. FOUR ~ There is lots to see on the drive on Route 19 past Argyle Shore Provincial Park. Stop in for a stroll on the beach at low tide. FIVE ~ Enjoy spectacular water views along the roadway from Souris to East Point.

THERE ARE places that are more than a hundred times the size of Prince Edward Island where it’s possible to drive for hours without a change of scenery. Not so in surprising PEI. Because of the Island’s irregular shape and countless bays and inlets, a trip along our coast delivers new vistas at every turn. Charming communities, each with its own unique flavour, are tucked away, their secret treasures quietly awaiting discovery. Touring our three coastal drives is the perfect way to explore the Island’s diverse landscape and history. North Cape Coastal Drive is brimming with Mi’kmaq culture, Acadian music and theatre, and museums devoted to potatoes, silver foxes, and shipbuilding. You’ll find the Wind Energy Interpretive Centre, The College of Piping, and houses made of glass bottles. Central Coastal Drive includes funfilled Cavendish, and much more. Enjoy spectacular views along Route 20, classic fishing ports and lobster suppers, shopping at Gateway Village, and a leisurely stroll around quaint Victoria-by-the-Sea. Points East Coastal Drive features the unforgettable dune system at Greenwich and the bayside community of St. Peters, as well as stunning beaches, lively ceilidhs, and the meeting of the tides at East Point. Watch for eagles and seals, and try not to miss scenic Montague, rustic Orwell Corner, and the historic Railway Museum in Elmira.

Seasoned with colour IT’S A QUESTION that gets asked quite frequently: “When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island?” Most visitors arrive in the summer, and for many the Island means golf, beaches, and water sports. The winter is a given, although you may still be surprised to learn we have downhill skiing, as well as tubing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The Jack Frost Festival and a few nights at a cozy inn make a perfect winter getaway. In the spring the earth awakens with crocuses, tulips, daffodils, lupins, and the Lady’s Slipper. And as spring slides into summer’s warmth, PEI explodes with Island Fusion, a seventeen-day celebration of our diverse culture with traditional music, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, and much more. This will be a province-wide event and promises to become a yearly favourite (www.tourismpei.com/fusion). And speaking of favourites, Fall Flavours eases the passing of summer with a series of culinary offerings–cooking boot camps, tasting events, and hands-on activities–all featuring fresh PEI ingredients and set against a colourful autumn backdrop. When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island? Take your pick!

VISITORS TIPS Nature is close at hand! Here are a few tips passed on from our visitors: ONE ~ Fall is alive with food festivals; in September, the PEI International Shellfish Festival and Fall Flavours. TWO ~ Sightseeing; the colours in June are amazing. See bright red farm fields framed by vivid greens of new-season growth and the blues of the shore waters. THREE ~ The off-season is a great time for golf. The courses are quieter and there is value to be found! FOUR ~ Take a peaceful walk on a sandy beach on a sunny October day. FIVE ~ During spring touring by car is rewarded with scenes of lupins and other wildflowers growing along Island roads.

Every season seems more vibrant, more intense, on PEI. The blue ocean in summer, the gold and crimson leaves in fall, the snow-covered landscape in winter, and the vibrant greens of farm fields edged with purple wildflowers in spring. Each will leave you speechless, and fumbling for your camera. Come experience nature’s beauty up close. Stanley Bridge Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

VISITORS TIPS The Island is an ideal camping site, whether you camp by tent or RV. ONE ~ Cavendish Campground, PEI National Park is located by the ocean and close to hiking trails. TWO ~ Cedar Dunes Provincial Park features an ocean beach and is next to the West Point Lighthouse. THREE ~ Red Point Provincial Park (pictured above) has three-way sites designed for large recreational vehicles. FOUR ~ Cavendish KOA Campground is family friendly with a pool, hay rides, petting zoo, jumping pillow and more. FIVE ~ Cornwall KOA Campground is located on the beautiful West River, and is only six kilometres from Charlottetown.

WE ALL KNOW people who enjoy spending a large part of their days involved in outdoor activities. But some of those people love spending their nights outdoors, as well. They prefer a tent to a hotel, a sleeping bag to a plush king-size bed. Are the rest of us missing something? Well, yes. We’re missing the matchless feeling of falling asleep to the sounds of the sea. Or waking to the calls of seagulls and the first rays of sunrise. Camping brings out our pioneer spirit, gives us a taste of how it was in the days before laptops and cable television. It helps create a community of kindred spirits, and gives us back some time to be together, away from the clutter and stress of daily life. The camping experience is available everywhere on the Island, in a variety of settings. You’ll find private campgrounds, provincial parks, cottages, cabins, and RV facilities. You can camp at the beach, in the woods, near shopping and restaurants, or away from it all. So whether you’re looking to rough it under the stars or relax in comfort, you’ll find the right accommodations at an affordable price. Enjoy the outdoors? There’s a campsite on Prince Edward Island that you’d love to call home. See more on www.tourismpei.com/camping.

Zip open your tent, pop open your trailer, or climb out of your RV, and find yourself soaking in the warm sunshine and fresh air. No two camping experiences are identical, and that’s part of the fun.

Local Essentials This section is full of things you need to know or might like to know about Prince Edward Island. You will find details about our environment, weather, beaches, health information and so on, plus our “Nice to Know” feature with fun insider info. Being surrounded by water is no deterrent to visiting the Island. It actually makes the trip that much more fun. You have three exciting transportation choices when traveling to PEI. LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING THE STRAIT

Whichever mode of travel you choose, you will notice that Prince Edward Island’s crescent shape is perfect for a grand circuit tour. Start in the east, arriving by ferry at Wood Islands, loop your way around East Point, then all the way to North Cape in the west, before departing by the dramatic Confederation Bridge (see everything in between). Wood Islands is the gateway community to scenic and lively eastern PEI. Or, reverse the procedure and begin at the Confederation Bridge. In either case, keep in mind that the bridge and ferry tolls are paid only on departure or, as we

Northumberland Ferries Departing from Caribou, Nova Scotia and Wood Islands, Prince Edward Island, on a schedule of about every hour and a half from May to late December, the car ferries offer a pleasant respite. The 75-minute trip, spent casually enjoying a chat and a snack, lounging on the deck soaking up the sunshine and sea air, and enjoying some traditional “music on deck,” is often considered a holiday highlight.

BE BEACH SAFE

On our Island province you are never far from the ocean and one of our numerous spectacular beaches. From the red sand beaches on the south shore to the white sand beaches on the north shore, Prince Edward Island offers a variety of unique and enjoyable beach experiences. Enjoying the warm waters surrounding the Island is a very popular activity. To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas. • ensure your children are supervised at all times. • never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy and watch out for each other.

Panmure Island JOHN SYLVESTER

• do not consume alcohol or drugs before or while swimming. Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgement. • weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properly-sized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. • pay close attention to surf conditions. Waves and

CHILD FIND

currents can make water more dangerous than usual. Swimming in the ocean is very different from swimming in a pool or lake. The strength and force of even small ocean waves can surprise beach goers who are unfamiliar with the power of the sea. When particular surf conditions are present at some of our beaches, rip currents can occur. Rip currents are powerful and can pull people away from shore. Even the strongest swimmers can get into trouble if caught in a rip current. Do not panic if this happens to you; relax and swim parallel to the shore to get out of the current; then swim back to shore. Do not attempt to swim back to shore against the current; it is too strong. Ask your lifeguard for more information when you arrive at the beach. PEI National Park beaches provide lifeguard service. Supervised Provincial Park beaches include: Jacques Cartier, Cedar Dunes, Chelton Beach, Northumberland, Cabot Beach, Basin Head, Red Point, and Panmure Island.

OUR FRAGILE DUNES

Whenever possible, stay on designated paths and stairways to the beach to help protect the fragile dune systems. Our white-sand beaches are known for their spectacular natural sand dunes. But they are as fragile as they are beautiful. Over the years, we have come to understand the need to respect these natural habitats for rare plants and wildlife by not disturbing the dunes. In an effort to keep this stunning natural resource intact, clearly marked access points to the beach have been designated. Please don’t play on the dunes; there are plenty of places to play on the beach and the eco-system will thank you.

The PEI Amber Missing Child Alert was implemented in PEI in 2003. When an Amber Alert is activated, any sightings can be reported by calling the number provided. For the safety of the child, do not approach or intervene. Child Find PEI can be reached at 1-800-387-7962. EMERGENCY CALLS

The Island’s province-wide 911 Emergency Response System is capable of linking visitors with translators in 140 different languages. It is important that you can identify your location when calling 911 from a cell phone. For emergency service, dial 911 anywhere in Prince Edward Island.

NICE TO KNOW!

Also Known As Abegweit is the Mi’kmaq word for Prince Edward Island, often interpreted as “land cradled on the waves.” Other monikers include Garden of the Gulf, Million-acre Farm, Kentucky of Canada, The Island!, and “the fairest land ‘tis possible to see” (according to Jacques Cartier in 1534). Lobster lore In PEI, lobster is fished in May and June and from mid-August to October. A “canner” is a small but legal-size lobster used for

canning. Lobster sold for fresh consumption is “market lobster.” A “cork” is a hired hand on a fishing vessel, especially a lobster boat. At one time, lobster was considered poor man’s food. Lobsters are naturally red in colour caused by a carotenoid pigment similar to that found in carrots. Some Island farmers put crushed lobster shells on their fields as fertilizer.   Other shellfish Male mussels are a light creamy colour while female mussels are a yellowish rust. Each year, PEI mussel farmers harvest more than 37 million pounds of delicious mussels bound for markets around the world. The rows of buoys seen in many Island bays mark the miles of mussel lines suspended just beneath the surface. Oysters really are good for you – a great source of protein, and high in zinc! Malpeque

Oysters may be grown anywhere in PEI. More and more, growers are branding the oysters according to the local source, such as Colville Bay or Raspberry Point. Can you tell the difference?   Beach bits Swimming at PEI beaches is comfortable due to the presence of the gulf stream and the very shallow shelf, which allows the water to heat up quite nicely. Water temperatures can reach 20ºC  (70ºF) in July and August. • some Island beaches are host to the nesting sites of the endangered Piping Plover. • marram grass holds our beautiful, delicate sand dunes in place. • PEI’s coastline measures 1760 km (1100 miles). • Naufrage was named after several shipwrecked sailors who settled in the area  (Naufrage is the French word for “shipwreck”).

If you are planning a fishing or hunting excursion, call (902) 368-4683 for information on licenses and other advice. DIG YOUR MEAL

Many of PEI’s shores are blessed with natural stocks of clams. Whether your preference is soft-shell clams, quahaugs or bar clams, there may be a “fishy” opportunity for you. While a recreational license to fish clams is not required, there are season, size and possession limits, and some areas are closed to shellfish harvesting. Soft-shell clams and quahaugs must be at least 50 mm (approx 2”) in length and bar clams must be at least 102 mm (approx

Specific questions on resource issues should be directed to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans at (902) 566-7812.

As a small island province, Prince Edward Island depends on the land and the sea as the basis for its three primary industries–farming, tourism and the fishery. All three of these industries are inter-dependent, and all are contingent on a healthy environment where crops flourish, shellfish thrive, and visitors reap the scenic benefits. The Island has a turbulent history when it comes to land ownership. From the moment property rights were seized from absentee landowners, Islanders have taken issues surrounding land use and stewardship seriously. The residents of PEI are aware that all this hangs in a delicate balance, and the provincial government and the Island community are taking measures to protect what they believe to be a special and magical place. The Prince Edward Island Government is taking the lead in implementing a Sustainable Resource Policy aimed at protecting and enhancing the agricultural and forestry resource. Some of the

programs and legislation currently in place include: • legislation relating to crop rotation and riparian buffer zones. • the PEI Food Trust, supporting sustainable growing and harvesting practices. For more information, see their website www.foodtrustpei.com. • programs to protect the Piping Plover, a bird at risk of extinction. When visiting PEI beaches, we thank you for respecting the marked nesting areas and signs that protect this endangered shorebird. • the Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program that provides support to communities to enhance streams and forests. • the Young Environmentalist Program that hires students to work on stream enhancement, erosion control, etc. • the annual Women’s Institute Roadside Cleanup. • anti-littering laws that administer fines up to $50,000.

• support for the Island Nature Trust, which protects and manages natural areas through land acquisition, conservation, habitat restoration and education. • the Green Power Program which sells power generated at the Atlantic Wind Test Site (North Cape) and East Point. • land use and land ownership controls such as limitations to land ownership by residents, corporations and non-residents; subdivision controls; and protection of endangered Island landscapes by the L.M. Montgomery Land Trust. See www.landtrust.ca. Information on these and other programs can be obtained from Island Information Services or from www.tourismpei.com/green.

BEVERAGE CONTAINERS

As of 2008, most beverage containers sold in PEI, with the exception of dairy products, now carry a deposit and are worth a cash refund when returned to one of the province’s nine licensed depots. This includes pop and beer cans and bottles, juice and water bottles, wine and liquor bottles and tetra packs. Resources from this system will be used to ensure containers are properly recycled and will fund projects that protect and enhance Prince Edward Island’s environment. See www.beveragecon tainers.pe.ca/ for more details on this program. WASTE WATCH

Prince Edward Island is proud to have a Waste Watch program that is province-wide. This system of recycling and composting aims to reduce

solid waste by 65%. When you visit the Island, please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the green and black containers (bins) as well as our blue-bag system. See the website www.iwmc.pe.ca for more information. PUBLIC NATURAL AREAS AND WETLANDS

Our Island is rich in public lands which are open to the public for hiking, biking, tours, outdoor education, hunting and fishing, where permitted. 33,000 hectares are set aside and managed for a combination of economic, social and environmental goals.

North Cape

PAUL BAGLOLE

Within the Public Lands, approximately 60 natural areas have been set aside to conserve and protect sensitive ecological sites. These sites may contain rare or threatened plant species, critical habitats for birds or animals, or unique ecological features. We are also very proud of the almost 100 ponds and wetlands that are both natural and man-made habitats, rich in terms of biodiversity and critical to the survival of many species. Signage around PEI will direct you to these valuable natural resources. For more information call (902) 368-6450. ON THE TRAILS

Prince Edward Island is the first province to complete its section of the TransCanada Trail. The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines more than a decade ago. The Trail is surfaced with finely crushed rock dust and is quite smooth and almost flat, making it easily negotiated on foot or by bicycle. The full tip-to-tip distance on the Trail (Tignish to Elmira) is 274 kilometres. The Trail passes along the sea shore, by farm pastures and woodlots, and through many small communities as it links the opposite ends of the Island. The Confederation Trail is a true all-season attraction as it is turned over to snow-

mobilers in winter. Bright plum-coloured gates mark the various entry points. There are several interesting branch trails that lead to places like Souris, Montague and BordenCarleton. Visit tourismpei. com/trailmap for a downloadable trail map or request the Confederation Trail map from our Visitor Information Centre (toll free). An excursion on the Confederation Trail is a mustdo for your vacation, whether you walk a small section in one of our cities, or cycle the whole Island, tip-to-tip. There are also many community and historical trails available for you to discover. These trails pass through Provincial Parks, woods and fields, and villages and towns. The Black Marsh Trail is the only bilingual coastal nature trail on PEI. This trail at North Cape provides interpretive displays on local fishing, plants, birds, and the legend of the Phantom Ghost Ship. This trail is famous for its spectacular views of the Northumberland

Strait and the rugged coastal terrain. While in western PEI, take time to visit the Lennox Island ‘Path of our Forefathers Trail’ to discover more about PEI and Mi’kmaq history. The Dromore Trail, located south of Mount Stewart, is a challenging hiking only trail, great for spring and summer birdwatching and featuring many bridges and boardwalks. The MacPhail Woods Trail at Orwell provides you with easy garden walks to more challenging woodland hikes, while you pass historic homestead buildings and displays. WEB LINKS Trails on the Island tourismpei.com/pei-trails Adventures! tourismpei.com/pei-adventure

Visit historic Fort Amherst for a great seaside walk with grass pathways and plenty of picnic areas. The PEI National Park offers two new multi-use paved trails along our beautiful north-shore beaches. One stretches 10 km from Dalvay to Brackley, and it is great for walking, running, cycling, or rollerblading. New for 2011 is a paved path from Cavendish to North Rustico. Also in the Brackley to Dalvay area you will find the Woodlands and Reeds & Rushes (wheelchair accessible) trails. And close by are the Farmlands and Bubbling Springs trails. These trails


feature a 50-year old Red Pine plantation, many flowering plants and bird life. The Homestead Trail in Cavendish is an eightkilometre loop trail which is great for hiking or cycling. This trail travels through old and active farmland and along the shore of New London Bay. It also connects to the new Cavendish Grove Trail, which wanders to the main beach area. There are newly built washroom facilities

on this trail. Parks Canada is working to modify two man-made ponds to create and enhance the ecological integrity of the area and offer new visitor experiences. While in Cavendish, a visit to the Green Gables National Heritage Site gives you access to many walking experiences. The Balsam Hollow Trail, starts at Lover’s Lane and guides you through a beautiful forest along a babbling brook, complete with interpretive

PEI Provincial parks

Prince Edward Island Provincial Parks is proud to offer visitors some of the Island’s most prized beach front locations. Many of our Provincial Park campgrounds are located along our famous sandy shores, where you can fall asleep lulled by the sound of the surf, and wake to the cry of seabirds. Take advantage of this easy access to the sea by trying your hand at clam digging and cooking your bounty on a campfire back at your own site, beach comb with your family or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity that only the ocean can provide. Our Provincial day parks are equally enjoyable and provide great picnic, rest and play areas.

Today most Islanders are descendants of European settlers, however, PEI’s first residents were the Mi’kmaq. The Mi’kmaq first lived here about 2000 years ago. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’,

meaning “resting on the waves”. European settlers pronounced the name as ‘Abegweit’. French explorers were the first Europeans to visit and settle the Island. Jacques Cartier described the Island as “...the fairest land ‘tis possible to see!” The French called the Island ‘Île Saint-Jean.’ To the British, who later occupied the area, the Island was known as ‘St. John’s Island.’ The Island was renamed in 1799 as ‘Prince Edward Island’, in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the father of Queen Victoria. In 1758, under British control, the Island was annexed to Nova Scotia, and Captain Samuel Holland was later commissioned to survey the land. He divided the Island into 67 townships of 20,000 acres each. In a great lottery held in London,

England, English merchants and military figures were granted large parcels of property in the colony. The colony was separated from Nova Scotia in 1769 but land issues continued for over 100 years until after confederation when the Island Government was able to purchase the last of the large estates lots for resale to tenants. Following the American War of Independence, many of those loyal to the British Crown moved north, some making the Island their home. The 18th and 19th centuries saw the arrival of many British settlers, including Scottish and Irish emigrants fleeing economic problems in their homeland. The Island prospered in the wood, wind and water economy of the mid 1800s and communities and colonial institutions expanded. The Charlottetown Conference, one of the most significant political events in Canadian history, was held in 1864 to discuss the possibility of Canadian union. The conference led to Canada officially becoming a nation in 1867. Prince Edward Island became a province of Canada in 1873 after negotiations that promised a continuous link to the mainland. Prince edward Island is proud to be Canada’s smallest province!

Tour the Island THIS ISLAND was made for touring. Look for red sandstone cliffs, scenic fishing villages, towering sand dunes and quaint family farms. While it is perfectly feasible to get in your car or on your bike and make your way around the Island, why not take it easy and have someone else do the planning? And the booking and driving! The tour companies listed in this section have experience in arranging a first-class Prince Edward Island tour that might last as short as an afternoon or as long as a week. Want to get out in the great outdoors, but don’t plan to bring a bike or a kayak? Then our adventure tours are the easy way to paddle and pedal your way around the province with experienced guides and quality equipment. Maybe you want to practice English as a second language, or learn a bit more about Island culture. Or perhaps all you require is a general sightseeing itinerary, with or without a driver and guide. Take a look through the listings here; you just might be surprised by all the possibilities!

Authentic PEI Experiences Our Authentic PEI Experiences are your perfect chance to take part in Island life, meet the locals - and go home with a story worth telling the neighbours! As a visitor to PEI, you can do more than just witness the Island way of life. You can live it, too. Real experiences. Simple pleasures. Being active and relaxed at the same time. Any island is its own unique world. Stories, music, recipes, and skills are preserved and passed down for generations. But here you’re welcome to take part, and take home some of our traditions. Islanders are eager to help. In an ever-growing series of activities, you can work side-by-side with chefs, artisans, fishermen, farmers, musicians, and a host of people who defy categorizing, but who love what they do and want to share it with you. So if you’re looking for a holiday with some real life behind it, you’ll find it here. Yes, you might get your hands dirty. You might also get your shoes wet. And your knees stained. All temporary. But the memory of your Island experiences will last a lifetime.

friendlier than you ever thought possible. At North Cape, the Island’s northwestern tip, towering turbines turn the abundant wind into energy at one of Canada’s leading wind test institutes. A visit to the interpretive centre will tell you all about the institute’s

cutting-edge research into renewable energy. This is also the spot where you’ll get to

Bustling fishing harbours are scattered throughout this part of the Island and because lobster fishing employs so many people here, it’s not hard to find a place selling fresh crustaceans for your table. Down the road in O’Leary, you’ll discover one of the

Island’s unique monuments. A giant potato looms proudly beside the Prince Edward Island Potato Museum where you can get a lesson in the ABCs of PEI’s favourite tuber.

Green Gables Shore OVER the last century, millions of readers from all over the world have come to know and love Anne of Green Gables™, and Prince Edward Island is where devotees come to celebrate her. Those who love the books or the TV miniseries make their way to Green Gables Shore in pilgrimage-like fashion to visit the many sites that pay tribute to their favourite red-haired heroine and her creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery.

While Anne may be the principal attraction for many, Green Gables Shore has more beauty and mystique

up its sleeve. The region is a spectacular piece of Prince Edward Island’s acclaimed scenic landscape composed of

Holstein Cows, Cavendish Photo / JOHN SYLVESTER

red sandstone cliffs, white sand beaches and rolling farm fields. Some of the classic coastline has been protected in the PEI National Park which hugs the central north shore. Cavendish Grove is an ideal entry way into the Park with its walking trails, picnic grounds and stand of sugar maples. Golfers have a hard decision to make since Green Gables Shore has more than 11 courses located just minutes apart.

GREEN GABLES SHORE DRIVE DISTANCES North Cape to East Point, 275 km (171 miles), 3 hours, 45 minutes Borden-Carleton to Kensington, 38 km (24 miles), 32 minutes Kensington to Cavendish, 23 km (14 miles), 25 minutes Tracadie Cross to Cavendish, 35 km (22 miles), 30 minutes Park Corner to Milton, 46 km (29 miles), 40 minutes

For family fun, spending time in Cavendish is a mustdo. There are amusement parks, mini golf, water slides and restaurants that cater to all ages and tastes. Just down the road, in North Rustico, adventure seekers can choose from kayaking, canoeing or deepsea fishing. Give in to the lure of the sea and head out onto the ocean for a fresh perspective of the stunning coastline.

Back on land, couples and families can take a trip down memory lane at the local drive-in theatre. Or, for a unique way to get those romantic sparks flying, you can treat your partner to a dance lesson inside a completely refurbished pig barn in Wheatley River. The owners are former amateur champions and don’t mind a bit if you have two left feet. To awaken your spiritual side, be sure to take in The

There are lovely cottages, bed and breakfasts, historic inns and four-star resorts, or for those who prefer to be closer to nature, wellequipped campgrounds with easy access to the beach. Even if you have never heard of Anne of Green Gables™, this region can satisfy your wish for a variety-filled vacation itinerary that could include beach, golf, theatre, music, nature walks and sea kayaking–all within an easy 20 minutes of each other.

itself perfectly to scenic touring and a favourite way to enjoy the Island’s pastoral landscape is to follow some of our Scenic Heritage Roads. These unpaved roads will take you well off the beaten path and into an earlier time in our history. It’s easy to enjoy all four seasons in the Red Sands Shore region. When it’s too cool for the beaches and campgrounds, it’s a great time to take a walk in the woods, or venture down a country road underneath a canopy of red and golden leaves. U-picks offer visitors the chance to pluck apples right from the branch and to savour the taste of autumn on their tongues. When the snow starts to fly, the Brookvale Provincial Ski Park has enough activities to keep you wishing winter would never end. There are hills for

sledding, downhill skiing and snow-tubing and a network of trails for cross-country skiing and exploring. By May, the air is warm enough for a canoe or kayak paddle along the West River in St. Catherines. You’ll enjoy the scenery as you glide along in the shadows of the rolling Bonshaw Hills. No matter the season, the warmth of the Red Sands Shores will welcome you.

INSIDER TIPS ONE ~ Go biking on the Scenic Heritage Roads. TWO ~ Splash in warm tidal pools at Argyle Shore. THREE ~ Go canoeing on the Bonshaw River, and try to spot a bald eagle. FOUR ~ The drive around Route 19 from DeSable to Rocky Point. FIVE ~ Make your own pottery at the Play-in-Clay experience at Right off the Batt in Kinkora.

Charlottetown IF YOU DECIDE to start your adventure in Charlottetown with a guided walking tour, “The Fathers and Ladies of Confederation” will be happy to oblige. Dressed in full period costume, the Fathers and Ladies will show you what makes this capital city such a historic gem. And you’ll see why it’s also a vibrant urban centre that dances to a beat all its own. Canada was born (or perhaps more accurately, was conceived) here when the Fathers of Confederation met at Province House in 1864 to plot out the creation of Canada.

Besides joining one of the entertaining guided tours, visitors can get caught up on Canadian history at Founders’ Hall, just down the National Historic Street called Great George. Just steps

away from Province House is Victoria Row. This narrow street is closed to car traffic in summer and its charming red brick buildings house an eclectic array of shops and restaurants. It seems like

everyone has patio seating and it is the perfect place to people watch, grab a bite and a drink and enjoy the sounds of local musicians who perform throughout the season. The Confederation Centre of the Arts occupies the other side of Victoria Row. It’s here that Anne of Green Gables– The Musical™ has been delighting audiences for an incredible 47 years. The Centre is a cultural hub and attracts performers from all over the world. An impressive art gallery displays the work of diverse Canadian artists

This map does not contain all the place names and roads on the Island. For detailed information refer to the official full-size PEI Highway Map.

and a gift shop has handcrafted items from across the country. The Centre also cultivates new talent through its Young Company program and each summer a group of gifted young Canadians attend classes and present free performances. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder The Confederation Centre won the 2008 Air Canada Business of the Year Award from the Tourism Industry Association of Canada! For a sailor’s view of the

city, a boat cruise will take you out onto the waters of Hillsborough Bay. From this vantage point, you can watch the activities along the shoreline and marvel at the copper spires of St. Dunstan’s Basilica that climb heavenbound above the city. Every Wednesday and Saturday, the country comes to the city at the Farmer’s Market, located just a few minutes drive from downtown. This is where traditional Island fare like fresh vegetables,

meats and pies can be found alongside ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world. As day turns into night, Charlottetown seems to turn into one big concert stage. Celtic bands kick up their heels and local singers belt out folksy tunes in the city’s pubs and lounges. Music is also a big part of the many summer festivals, so if you see a tent on the waterfront, chances are you’re about to be treated to some great musical talent. Charlottetown’s beauty is that, even in the heart of the city, you’re never far away from a round of golf or a day at the beach. The 18-hole Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club is just seven minutes away, in Stratford. Keep driving a little further and you’ll discover the red sands of Tea Hill Beach, a great place for shell collecting and a dip in the milky-warm water.
