The Gulf of St. Lawrence.

We drove 40 miles to The Confederation Bridge and across to Prince Edward Island (PEI). Once across we stop at Borden-Carlton Village, which is a Gift Shop and information area for PEI. Got some maps and books on what to see and do in a day and we were off.

After some driving and a few turn arounds, we discovered 2 things. PEI is very rural and the maps they give you do not have the same number roads on them. Fortunately our phones are working up here.

The island is all about farming, mostly potatoes. About 1/3 of the island is tillable land. Of what we saw the fishing villages were spread out. We did find a restaurant with very good Clam Chowder, but no fresh lobster. We had Fish Taco's and Fish & Chips. Both were very good.

We then drove on to Charlottetown which is the capital city and one of the 2 large cities on PEI. Typical older city with all narrow one way streets, until you get to the suburbs. Spent some time at Victoria Park which had just been redone. Then to complete the loop headed back toward the bridge. After a 1/2 hour traffic jam, because they were slurry sealing the streets at 5:30 in the afternoon, we got out of town.

Wish we had stopped and taken pictures of the many beautiful small Churches. We did get one which doesn't do justice to some we saw.
