Aug 9, 2011 - Prince Edward Island

Mike woke up before everybody and took a stroll through the campground. He ran across a bunny during his travels. We took the scenic route to Hopewell Cape and a detour to Cape Enrage where we ended up just turning around to go to Hopewell Cape instead. We had found a nice little spot to check out the water and the kids got to skip some rocks. We saw lots of blue herons in this area which I really enjoyed. We spent a lot of time at the flower pots at Hopewell. Afterwards we went to a diner around the corner where Donovan and I shared deep...

Jun 18, 2011 - Confederation Bridge

We left Charlie and Melanie's and headed to Prince Edward Island for a few days. To get to PEI we drove the Confederation Bridge. The Confederation Bridge joins the eastern Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. The curved, 12.9 kilometres (8 mile) long bridge is the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water. Because of its phenomenal length, the bridge uses a multi-span concrete box girder structure. Engineers designed the bridge with graceful curves to ensure drivers remain attentive, and to reduce the...

Sep 21, 2010 - Tuesday Borden-Carleton, PEI

Up early and dropped the RV with the CAT dealer. They said it would be a couple of hours, so we went driving around. Ended up in downtown Charlottetown where we could not find a parking space on Friday. Bob parked on the waterfront at Victoria Park and we just relaxed for awhile. Bob and Darby went for a walk but Darby either became tired of the howling wind or missed Barbara. We then drove to the middle of old town and fed a two dollar coin in the meter. Walked around just window shopping and wondering how long the RV would take. Around...

The Trip of 2010

Aug 10, 2010 - Confederation Bridge

Today we left Prince Edward Island and crossed the Confederation Bride into New Brunswick. It was very foggy crossing so the photos are a bit fuzzy. It only took about 10 minutes to cross and the cost was $56.50. You only have to pay one-way from Prince Edward Island, you don't pay when you arrive, you pay when you leave. We really enjoyed our stay on the island. The Confederation Bridge is a bridge spanning the Abegweit Passage of Northumberland Strait, linking Prince Edward Island with mainland New Brunswick, Canada, making travel...

Aug 20, 2009 - Prince Edward Island

We've been quite busy the past few days. Our RV park here in Prince Edward Island is very nice. It has both sunny and shaded sites, hence its name, Sun and Shade Campground. The campground has a good laundry, game room, plus many gaming areas such as bocce ball etc., and it located right on the Confederation Trail, a walking and biking trail that goes from one end of the island to the other. The park is conveniently located only two miles over the Confederation Bridge. This very long bridge spans 12.9 kilometers (that’s nearly 8 miles) and...

Jul 31, 2009 - Prince Edward Island

We awoke to a bright sunny morning; nothing like the rains we experienced yesterday. We would stay another day and do the NP but we have a reservation in PEI and I think we're both anxious to get there because it's one of our favorite areas of Atlantic Canada. So, we broke camp, Joe hooked up the car and we were on our way for the short ride to PEI. Of course, the most dramatic part of this drive is the trip over the Confederation Bridge, which connects New Brunswick and PEI by road. The bridge is 13 km and is the longest bridge in the...

Jul 13, 2009 - toured around

July 13, 2009 camped over We had a good storm last night, lots of hard rain off and on and some thunder and lightning, it must be dry up here because there were not any puddles laying around, it was still cloudy this morning when we got up but as the day rolled on the sun came out off and on. We headed out to go find the shackle Buddy needed for the trailer and we found them at an RV dealer, the guy said that they keep them in stock since it was a common thing needed around here with the roads in the shape they are in. We then drove over to...

Jul 12, 2009 - Borden-Carleton, PEI

July 12, 2009 traveled 44 miles We moved down closer to the confederation bridge which is what we cross when we leave the island. As we were pulling into our campsite we saw a man that looked familiar so we started talking to him and found out it is the same guy that runs the check in at the strawberry festival we talked to him every time we walked in and out so we got to know him a little and met his wife also, so that was really weird to see them up here, so we went and visited them for awhile. Well once we got the trailer set up Buddy...

Jun 30, 2009 - Confederation Bridge, PEI

Monday morning, EARLY, we left Cheticamp driving south on the Cabot Trail, stopping at Mabou Harbour Lighthouse, then continuing on to Cape George which overlooks St. George Bay. On down the road, we found a replica of the lighthouse that stood at Arisaig Point, now a store, but beautiful nevertheless. The campground at Pectou was full (just out luck), so we continue on to Sea Form, no internet here (3 straight days) either. We crossed the Confederation Bridge, the longest bridge in the world, this afternoon, into Prince Edward Island. How...
