Cavendish is famous for being the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the writer of Anne of Green Gables. It is also the largest seasonal resort area on Prince Edward Island.

From the journal: “Left the campground around 10. Didn’t have very far to go to the next campground. We stopped for a bit of grocery shopping and beer in North Rustico. On to Cavendish! We went down to the Cavendish beach and walked along the dunes. Very picturesque. At our campsite at Sunset Campgrounds there were lots of shops and restaurants. Had a “beavertail”. Nice, but very sweet. Went to our campsite around 1:30. Nice facilities – huge campground. Went for a nice swim at the pool and Marcel and I played with a beach ball. Had a shower. Nice, hot, clean and free. What could be better. Finally able to cook tonight, we had a stirfry. Hung out and read and played games. Nice night.”
