Although we only spent 2 nights in the really pleasant town of Dalhousie, New Brunswick, it was with regrets that we departed and set course for Prince Edward Island, crossing the 8 mile long Confederation Bridge. Dalhousie has lost all their industry over the last few years, but the people have kept their heads high, and are super friendly.
We departed Quebec City and continued our journey East, and today will be a big day as we finally reach the ocean, after 6 weeks of crossing mountains and prairie. Regardless of the fact we are over 4,000 miles from Vancouver, on reaching the ocean it will feel great to be “home”. Today is another 300+ mile drive and a long weekend, so we wanted to be on the road fairly early to get out of Quebec City before the motorway got too busy.
