We were up a bit later today and had breakfast before setting off to explore the Southeast area of Prince Edward Island. We drove directly to Georgetown and spent a while at the docks watching fishing boats come in and at a memorial park. We continued in a south-westerly direction to Montague where we had a light lunch and did a little shopping before exploring the waterfront then continued on round the coast stopping at a few places.

Panmure lighthouse was interesting with views across Northumberland strait to Nova Scotia, the at Graham Point we saw a number of fishing boats. Another interesting lighthouse was at Pimms Point because it is reputed top be the only brick built lighthouse in Canada and commands a view across Hillsborough Bay to Charlottetown. It predates Confederation and it is reckoned the lighthouse keeper could have seen the ships carrying the Fathers of Confederation to their conference.

Today's tour provided really good views, and while perhaps not as dramatic as the Cabot Trail seemed much more satisfying and offered excellent scenery.

From Pimms Point we headed back to Charlottetown and parked the car, walking down Queen street to Victoria Way where we had dinner at John Brown's Restaurant. It was another good meal. We seem to have been fortunate in our choices of eating establishments and have enjoyed really excellent meals wherever we have stopped.

We returned to the hotel and got our packing done in preparation for our journey to St John tomorrow.
