Our first stop today was to head to the Cows Creamery. For those that don't know there is a world-famous ice cream store that originates here named Cows. In addition to their ice cream they are also somewhat famous for their awesome line of parody t-shirts. I'll post a photo of a shirt we bought later on in the week. I have to admit, the Factory Tour at Cows was kind of lame. It's a very small factory and they charge you $6 to look through the glass into a t-shirt shop, then the tiny ice cream kitchen, then the cheese storage, and then a spoonful of ice cream to sample. The whole thing takes about 10 minutes. Granted we were there on a Saturday, so it's probably a little more exciting when the rooms are filled with people working, but I have to say that I'd just rather you spend your money on the actual ice cream or one of their fun shirts. Avoid the tour. Lame-o!
Because our pass was good for two days we headed back to Avonlea Village, where both Anne and Gilbert remembered Ephraim (how awesome is that?). And so we did the tourist thing and took photos of him with them. Also kudos to Gilbert for playing ball with Ephraim for over ten minutes (including hitting him in the head). Can't say enough good about this place. Really solid. Please go - it deserves to be supported.

Oh, and before I forget, here is a personal little letter to the people at TomTom GPS service.
Dear TomTom people, we find your navigation system quite easy to use, however your P.E.I. maps are something to be desired. On several occasions you have lead us down roads that no longer exist, and fail to acknowledge ones that do. I spent at least half an hour or more today heading in the wrong direction (on several occasions). So please, send someone to P.E.I. and update your maps. There is an entire survey of houses that you do not know exists. That is all.
So that was our day. We ended it with going to an AWESOME restaurant in Summerside called Five Eleven West. Great food, awesome staff. Would go there again in a heartbeat! We've had two later nights with Ephraim out about so I think the plan is to stay close to home tomorrow. Supposed to be nice in the afternoon so we'll see what we get up to!
