Hard for me to believe it is a new month I have been on the road now 37 days!!!
On the road by 9am and a pretty uneventful drive towards PEI I shall explore more of New Brunswick in late September on my way back.
By 11.30am I was approaching the Confederation Bridge… now not a joke like yesterday… this is the world’s longest free standing bridge over ice covered water. You can get on to PEI by this bridge or further north by ferry the beauty of it is that you do not pay to go over you only pay when you leave the Island.
Some views of the bridge!!!
I stopped in the Visitors Centre and received some great maps and decided for my first day I would drive to the North cape on the west tip of the Island!!
It was obvious right away the flavour of the Island and the loveliness of it all and many people had told me that and also how friendly the people were…well it was time to put that to the test as I needed to fill up my fresh water tank and 3 gas stations that I stopped at had no outside water tap…so on the small side roads that I was travelling I decided to stop at the next house that looked good for me to ask to fill up the tank and before long I found the right house the man was outside cutting grass.the driveway was wide and I saw a water tap at the corner….so I went into his yard and told him my story and of course he said sure drive on up!!!!! A great start to the Island trip!!
After about 80 minutes I arrived at
There was a huge parking area and it looked right away a great place to spend the night so here is Ramona all settled in
I do love the ocean and it will be nice to go to sleep with the lapping of the waves tonight.
I try and do a good walk everyday and there was a great trail here along the cliff top about 9km
This area is a test site for these wind generated machines and this is the first time I have been so close to one to see the hugeness and the power and hear the noise!!
Back at the parking lot there was some information on the turbines..
I am determined to put my feet in the Atlantic Ocean but I think these bodies of water are not it anyway I shall dangle my toes at every opportunity and one day soon it will be the Atlantic!!!
So i had a great first day, a lovely hike, a nice supper, a great view and now tea and a movie.
I shall try and post this tomorrow sometime on my journey!!!!
