Sunday in Charlottetown, PEI – Day 49

We went to the LDS Church in the morning in Charlottetown, PEI and then explored more of the island in the afternoon in the rented car, plus had an amazing lobster dinner. Another great day.

We wanted to see the avonlea Village of Anne of Green Gables. When we got close we discovered that next to the Village, at Cavendish, is a huge open air area where they hold the annual Beach Music Festival...and it was going on yesterday (with the Dixie Chicks) and today with Kenny Cheseney. There was quite a crowd and excitement filled the air.

After dinner we drove along  the road and crossed a bridge in Rusticoville where there were hundreds and hundreds of oyster beds neatly placed over a very large area of the bay. Oyster farming. You can see the buoys in very long rows holding the oysters. Started in 1865, oyster farms are an important industry on PEI. These are called "off bottom and water column production methods".

Late afternoon looking out at Rustio Harbour and a bridge for highway #6. Oyster farming was in full production on both sides of the bridge with hundreds of buoys holding up the bags off the bottom.
