Caribou-Munroes Island Provincial Park

Caribou-Munroes Island Provincial Park

A very nice provincial park. There are a few (27) electric sites, but ours is not. The non-electric sites are large and well-separates. We have deep spruce woods surrounding us, a picnic table, and fire ring. There are flush toilets and showers, wood for sale, and a camp store selling ice and tee shirts.

Today we decided to walk the beach all the way to the point where the ferry arrives. It was a mostly pleasant walk — it was low tide so we could walk the hard-packed sand. There are places where it is rather rocky which made it difficult. Near the campground and picnic area there were quite a few families sitting out on the beach. The further along we walked the fewer people we encountered. We talked with three Nova Scotians who were kayaking but had pulled up on the beach for a break. Once again we saw few signs of wildlife, though the kayakers reported that they had seen seals while paddling.

Along the walk we could watch the ferries coming and going and had great views of the Caribou Island lighthouse. The entire walk with return was 6-miles. Our longest walk of the trip. Dinner was potatoes and onions with egg and some local PEI yellow beans. Tasty.
