We got to feed the pigs! There is a pig farm next door to Briarcliffe and some of the pigs live in the woods on the B&B property during the summer. We got to feed and water them one morning. They were kind of cute. The next day we had last year's pigs for breakfast. Oh dear. At least it was clear they were happy.
The roads on PEI are really red dirt. Ever read Anne of Green Gables? Anne is the number one tourist attraction on the island. It was a lot of fun to visit the world of L.M. Montgomery. I loved her books as a child. We read the first Anne book on the trip and come to find out I still love them. We did not visit the tourist mecca that is the Anne phenomenon though. The beach was calling.

And I was sorry this little shop was closed in Victoria-by-the-sea. We did get amazing chocolate in Victoria.
We had a great day on the beach, Dalvay-by-the-sea (By-The-Sea seems like a frequent addition to town names on PEI. Isn't everything there by the sea?).
This field of potatoes was right behind Briarcliffe Inn.
Those potatoes are destined to become french fries at this establishment of which there are plenty in Canada also:
Prince Edward Island was a wonderful place for a honeymoon. Thanks PEI!
