Glamping PEI: Island charm and memories of Ireland

There’s something about crossing Confederation bridge to Prince Edward Island that takes me back to Ireland.

Whether it’s the dramatic change in landscape from miles of dense evergreen and moose warnings, to the wide green pastures and potato fields, there’s something magical about crossing the 12.9 km. bridge to P.E.I.

We spent three days at one of the best glamping campsites, Twin Shores, located in Darnley, near historic Malpeque and a short jaunt to Cavendish and all things Anne of Green Gables. The campground hosts more than 4 km of oceanfront, gleaming sunsets, a general store, cafe and tennis courts. And there’s plenty activities to keep the kids busy, however ours were happy to stroll the beach and ride their bikes along the lanes of campers, glampers, seasonals and holiday makers renting out campers for the week.

We met up with friends old and new and enjoyed beach socials, while the kids bobbed the waves and dodged the jelly fish. At our last evening barbecue there were six adults surrounded by 10 children ranging in age from seven-years-old to 21 (we’re all someones child).

Lighthouse Lane is our favourite place to pitch and our wooded site was private and a short walk to the beach.

For anyone wondering how Talbot keeps his svelte physique?…

 

We earned our appetites and we dined…

And overall, nobody had any fun…
