    Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

    September 24, 2017 in Canada

    Today we visited Prince Edward Island (PEI) which is the smallest Canadian province. We docked in Charlottetown, which is the birthplace of modern Canada. It is PEI’s oldest and largest city.
    We spoke to the local representative on board, got a map and were on our way. We walked through historic Charlottetown following the “Fathers of Confederation” route (a painted line on the sidewalk). We viewed wonderful examples of Victorian architecture, quaint boutiques and Province House (the provincial legislature since 1847).Read more

    Cornwall (near Charlottetown)

    September 16, 2015 in Canada

    Our journey today took us to Moncton, population 69,000. Not a very impressive city so we didn't spend much time there. We were surprised how small these Maritime cities are. Next stop was the coastal town of Shediac, the "Lobster Capital of the World". JS wasn't up to the messy challenge of eating a whole lobster but he did enjoy a seafood casserole with lobster. The friendliness of the locals stood out here. We then drove over the 12.9 km Confederation Bridge connecting NB to PEI, the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water.Read more

    Charlottetown, PEI

    September 17, 2015 in Canada

    We started our day with a walking tour of Charlottetown. Lots of history here, particularly hosting the talks that led to Confederation. It's a small city full of character and friendly people....all 35,000 of them!

    Island Hopping

    November 13, 2017 in Canada

    Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day! Rugged up we headed down to the Freight Shed, where we had the great meal last night, to have a great breakfast this morning. Not open. Back up to the Main Street. None of the small handful of cafes that were supposedly open were! We had a lovely walk along the lake in the crisp morning air so not all was lost.
    Plan B - breakfast at Tim Horton’s, the only option, then hit the road. Today’s journey took us along the Sunrise Trail to Pictou where we had a very late lunch/early dinner before getting the ferry across to PEI (Prince Edward Island).
    The Sunrise Trail travels more coastline. This coastline is lined with farmlands - beautiful farmhouses right on the coast with stunning views in all directions.
    The 75 minute ferry crossing had us arrive in Wood Islands after 6pm with a further 45 minute drive to Charlottetown.

    A Sleety Day in Charlottetown

    November 14, 2017 in Canada

    3º was the maximum today with a feels like of -2. Needless to say we were rugged right up in jumpers, big jackets scarf for me, buff for Neil and gloves for our walk around Charlottetown. We followed the historical walk, the unbroken red line that took us around the town down to the harbour and through the old neighbourhoods. Before the end of the walk it was snowing, or sleeting or sprinkling ice or all of the above.
    We dined at Terre Rouge - lentil and beetroot burgers for both of us. We had our choice of tables as we were the only punters. We were there late in the afternoon but I doubt that they are ever rushed off their feet during the down season. Or perhaps today everyone was hiding inside out of the wind and sleet. Only the tourists were out walking in it.
    We have extended our stay another two nights after tonight as Charlottetown is basically in the middle of the island and we can strike out from here for the next two days.
