The next day we got up and drove to Prince Edward Island (PEI).
The Confederation Bridge is the longest bridge in the world that crosses ice covered water (although this time of year there's no ice) If you click the link you can find out all kinds of interesting things about the bridge and building it. For example it was quite a controversy over whether or not to build a fixed link from PEI to the mainland, it was passed with a vote just under 60%.
(oh and by the way to my American friends... Confederation is a pretty big thing out here,its not a North VS South thing from the US. Confederation here refers to the birth of Canada) :)So yes, crossing a big bridge, here's the approach
"Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery has always held a special place on my list of favourite books.
I'm not sure if Anne of Green Gables was a popular book in the USA, if you aren't familiar with the story click the link.
Here is Green Gables, the actual original home the book is based on. If they were real this is where Matthew, Marilla & Anne would have lived.
Cows, which is right next door, for some souveniery things and ice cream. If you ever get a chance try it, its been voted the best ice cream in the world!
We also went to Cavendish and checked out the beach. Not for the beach but for the view, which was gorgeous but so bitter & cold that day.
We stayed at the Rodd Charlottetown. Its kinda the 'crown jewel' of Rodd hotels. It started out as a CN railway hotel... quite the snazzy place back in the day, it opened in 1931. The hotel itself is gorgeous but the bed was NOT comfortable at all and the staff seemed kinda snooty. (I guess maybe a plain jane burger girl isn't fancy enough for a 5star hotel??)
Thursday we got up and were on our way to Nova Scotia, last stop before we head home!
