We woke up on day 3, decamped, ate breakfast and headed to PEI. On the way we stopped to see the world’s longest covered bridge, spanning Saint John river.
It was closed to vehicle traffic, but you can walk across it.
We stopped in Fredricton for gas and to stretch our legs. Then on we went.
We drove across Confederation Bridge. It was extremely foggy. We couldn’t see much. This only added to the feeling that we were going on and on and on. Then finally we saw the island.
Charlottetown was a quiet city. We wandered down to the harbour and back up to the birth place of Canadian confederation, PEI’s Legislative Assembly. It was closed for restoration, but National Park’s of Canada had a 3D tour setup outside.
We then drove on to our campsite at Stanhope in PEI National Park. We setup camp in our private, tree lined site. We cooked dinner and then went across the small road to beach to watch the sunset. On the way back we saw a red fox run through our site. Classic!
After dark we had a campfire and then carried out the telescope to view the clear sky, with little light pollution.
