July 12 & 13. Monday was a busy day. I woke up in Charlottetown and then made the 40 min drive to Summerside. It's a very small town, about 14,000 people. Funny thing is that it's the 2nd largest city on the island. It's a totally different world here in PEI.
The drive across the confederation bridge only takes about 10 mins but it costs $42.50. You only npay when leaving PEI.
I then drove to Saint John, NB. This is a very nice city. The downtown is small but very trendy. I had a beer at this pub, the lady in the pink just loved Calvin:
The lady and the tourist area told me that I should check out "Reversing Falls" before I leave, so I did. Here is a pic. Not sure what's so special about it, I'll have to google it when I get some time.
By far the coolest thing i've seen is the tides in the Bay of Fundy in just outside of Saint John. I took a scenic route off Hwy 2 and stopped off in this tiny little place called Chance Harbour. It's about 25 mins west of Saint John. I was driving on this cottage type road and a guy was fixing his garage door. I asked him if I could take a few pics of the bay. He was so accomodating. His name is Joe. These tides come in twice a day and right now are at 22 feet. WOW. At the highest times of year they get to almost 29 feet. As you can see in the pic, this was low tide. This pic was taken t about 8:20pm and the low tide was at 7:30pm. When it's high tide the water is up to the top of the dock, UNBELIEVABLE.
I then drove to St Stephen for the night. It was a long day!
