Foxes and a Dachshund

Shipwreck Point in a fog

Coming to P.E.I. before  the season starts (June 15-30) means one often has tourist spots to yourself and one can stop in the middle of the road to take a picture.  But it also means the Summerside College of Pipers hasn’t started their public performances and many other places are still closed for the winter.  And the earlier one comes the more chance it will be cold, raining and foggy.

We still enjoyed our drive up to the north coast, although sometimes we felt like this bedraggled wet red fox.  On the other hand, we weren’t interested in the many amusements offered for families on vacation later in the summer, especially those centered around Anne of Green Gables. It looked like a great place for others, but we just enjoyed seeing the countryside.

The sun did appear as the day wore on.   We particularly enjoyed seeing the coastline, the many fishing villages and lighthouses.

We met another red fox at the  East Point Light.  Inside, we met a dachshund.  His owner said the fox likes to tease the dachshund.  The dachshund likes to chase the fox.  One day the fox ran to the edge of a cliff, and just as the dog reached him, the fox stepped aside.  The dachshund went over the cliff — shades of Wiley Coyote, the cartoon character.  Fortunately, like Wiley, the dog survived to chase the fox another day.

About ralietravels

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.
