The Confederation Bridge which connects the mainland to Prince Edward Island
is 8 miles long and crosses over the Northumberland Strait. Being only 3 years
old, it is a very modern bridge.|
We took some pictures of it but they did not make the picture cut!
The island has rolling hills and well kept farms all over it. It is almost like driving in some parts of central New York.
The shoreline is either cliffs, beaches, or harbors with fishing & lobster boats.
All over the island there are Lobster Suppers. We went to one in the basement of Saint Ann's church. It was a complete dinner with soup, 2 dozen muscles, 1 and 1/2 lobsters, and desert for each of us. Mom did not eat the muscles but she did everything else.
We spent 2 nights in Cavendish, PEI. That is where the Anne of Green Gables was written.
Then we went to Charlottetown for 2 nights. While there we went to the musical "Anne of Green Gables." We had great seats and the music and acting was outstanding.
