I didn't send anything yesterday because there was not much to report on. I woke up yesterday in Saint John, New Brunswick and had breakfast at my hotel. I set out about 9:00 with a 200 mile drive ahead of me. It was a nice sunny morning, but very cool, only about 45 degrees. My drive remained sunny and pleasant for the first 150 miles or so. In fact, the sun was shining when I began crossing the Confederation Bridge.
But by the time I had gotten to the other side, it had clouded over and was raining. The Confederation Bridge is a ten mile long bridge spanning the Abegweit Passage of the Northumberland Strait and connecting New Brunswick with Prince Edward Island. Both the picture above and below were actually taken today as the weather was too ugly yesterday.
I had lunch at a Tim Horton's at the welcome village and then went straight to my hotel in Charlottetown. Since the weather did not improve all day, I made it another football Sunday and stayed put for the rest of the day.
This morning after breakfast at the hotel I set out to explore the island. It was a mostly cloudy day but there were a few sunny periods. It was still quite cool. The first place I stopped was at the Cavendish Cliffs.
This is part of the Prince Edward Island National Park. It is a very pretty area. There is a nice pounding surf.
My next stop was in Cavendish itself at the iconic mythical home of the beloved character, Anne of Green Gables.
I was able to walk through the house which was furnished with authentic period furnishings. Below is Anne's room.
It was a beautiful farm. Since the book was fiction there is nothing real here. But everything was done as it was described in the book. Below is the barn.
I also visited the birth place of the local author Lucy Maud Montgomery.
I spent the day driving all around the scenic island. Below is some of the scenic splendor I encountered today.
I visited several small towns along the coast, and they all had a harbor that looked very similar to the one you see below.
It was a fun day. This was the only Canadian province that I had not been to yet. It is a very pretty island. Below is a church in the village of Malpeque.
When I got back to the hotel I had to do laundry. I had been putting it off for days. I had to do it today or start wearing dirty clothes. I'm now getting ready to watch the first presidential debate. I will write more soon.
