It was a fond farewell to Kouchibouguac National Park, New Brunswick - swatting mosquitoes to the last second.
The line of cars leaving PEI was hilarious. A weekend music festival had attracted thousands and most of them were leaving as we crossed the Confederation Bridge. The back up was over 8 kilometres long. As great a sight as that was to me there were still thousands left. It's extremely busy here. We are in a Holiday Inn Express for one night in Charlottetown,
We arrived on the island around noon so did a little exploring before checking in to the hotel. When we were last in PEI (1984) the central scenic route was called the Blue Heron Drive. That is now the Central Coastal Drive and is the route we chose today. In a word, PEI is beautiful. Near Kensington we went off the route to the St. Mary's Historic Church. Established in 1902, it is a striking structure especially against the gorgeous blue sky.
