Cream of the Crop (Travel Theme: Cream)

This scene of the early morning rays of sunshine lighting up the dandelion heads across a field in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, will stay with me forever. Such a glorious image to leave the island with.


This memory is definitely the cream of the crop when remembering our overnight stay on Prince Edward Island (pun very much intended, lol). Cream is this week’s Travel Theme Challenge from Where’s My Backpack.




Field of Dreams (Silent Saturday)


Field of Dreams

Confederation Bridge

When planning our holiday to Eastern Canada we were torn between visiting Prince Edward Island (PEI) and New Brunswick, when a friend mentioned they would go back to PEI if only to cross Confederation Bridge.

Hmmm, the wheels began turning, a tad more googling and voila. Guess what we were crossing for a meal of fresh lobster?!

If we were in any doubt as to whether or not we were approaching the bridge, the signs certainly were there to let us to know we were getting close, lol! 🙂

Approaching Confederation Bridge

The lobster, or ANY of the seafood for that matter, did NOT disappoint and after spending the night at a quaint B&B in Charlottetown, we headed back to Moncton Airport, New Brunswick the only way we could… VIA Confederation Bridge.

Heading back over Confederation Bridge to New Brunswick

Confederation Bridge opened back in May 1997, replacing the existing ferry service between the provinces of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. This 8 mile long curved bridge is the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water.

Now, as to when we’ll be going back for that delightfully sweet lobster… “mum, how much longer?”
