Canadian Maritime Visit, Day 3
Charlottetown, PEI to Port Hawksbury, NS
We had fresh muffins for breakfast along with bacon,
eggs, and toast, and she sent us off with more muffins
We couldn't stop admiring her yard and her view
St. George had a lovely little harbor
and architecture and flowers we couldn't resist
We visited little coves
and blond wheat fields
till we arrived at the ferry dock and embarked to go to Nova Scotia
This was a newer ferry with three car decks ... this one is A deck, below the deck you drive onto.
That's us on the left. There are two rows of cars, and three rows of trucks on this deck (B).
Above the cars on B deck, there's C deck with room for two more rows of cars.

more views from the ferry
And we'll never forget all the red dirt of P.E.I.
We were entertained by a fiddler who sang and also played other instruments
Many people ate on board, but we didn't
We pass an older ferry going the other way
We docked in Nova Scotia in just over an hour
On the way to Cape Breton (another shortcut) we met this lighthouse high atop a hill
This snack bar near the lighthouse in the middle of nowhere was not doing much business
Spectacular views on our shortcut
We visited the tuna museum to learn how they caught the fish and sent them all to Japan for sushi
Approaching the bridge to Cape Breton
It's a swing bridge just like Blackburn Point, only bigger
There's quite a bit of industry along the Port Hawksbury waterfront
But they've also cleaned up a the area near our B&B
Another lovely B&B run by a woman alone
On to Day 4, or back to the Trip Index
