Ferry to Prince Edward Island

We headed to the ferry port, in fact got there the night before. They said it was fine to park overnight in lane 8, the RV lane, so we did that. Had a little dinner and read until bed time. In the morning we woke to others getting in line for departure, and soon the ferry arrived.

Car after car and quite a few semi trucks emerged

Then it was our turn to board, er, roll on.

Once we were parked we went through the watertight doors.

Shediac, NB

At this point point, plans changed. We were planning to go on to Nova Scotia, back to where we took the boys so many years ago. We stopped at Shediac at the tourist information center there. We knew we were traveling in the OFF, off season, so we were checking to make sure places we were going were still open. We meet a couple who had just come back from Prince Edward Island and raved about a park there. Those rave reviews, alone with the prospect of visiting Green Gables, of Anne Shirley fame made that destination irresistible. Then they said, "Plus, you can take the ferry over!" The ferry! You want me to put my Minnie on a ferry? Well, okay, we were game.

So we messed around in Shediac awhile.

Hopewell Rocks

Hopewell Rocks is one of our favorite places to visit. You can see why they call it flowerpot rocks.
