I have a question (or a few questions actually). We're flying to Halifax on July 16 and then immediately driving from there to the ferry and over to PEI to stay at Dalvay by the Sea. We'll be there for 4 days and then will take the bridge back and will stay in Halifax at Halliburton House.
Has anyone been to either of these inns? Reviews anyone? How long will it take to drive from the airport to get to Dalvay? (We're landing around 11 am so I'm hoping we can be there - leisurely - by dinner time.)
The only thing we have planned in PEI is to go to Charlottetown on the Tuesday night to see Anne of Green Gables. I just CAN'T miss that! I thought we could go to the winery one day for an outing but the rest of the time we plan on sitting on the beach and maybe wandering around but nothing too strenuous.
On Wednesday we'll drive back to Halifax in time for dinner and then the next day we have Tidal Bore Rafting booked for the day on the Schubacie River. On our last day in Halifax we are booked for whale watching in Lunenberg and then we're going to a dinner theatre in the evening.
Does this itinerary sound ok or am I setting myself up to kill myself (time wise)?
Does anyone have a good authentic seafood place that we can go to for lunch one day in PEI? Hubby is really excited about that one but at the same time I'm allergic to fish so I will need to also be able to have something else. Dalvay prices include dinner each night but he can still get a good lunch feed one day.
Is there anything else that is a MUST see in PEI? I would appreciate any comments, hints or suggestions that anyone might have.
