At Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. April 5-6, 2009

Once I crossed the Confederation Bridge from New Bruwnswick, I was already in Prince Edward Island.  However Charlottetown was still about 45 mins to 1 hour away.  Known as the "Birthplace of Confederation," Charlottetown was a very quiet city just like Moncton. 

I went to the wharf and strolled along Great George St.  It was already early in the evening and Gahan Restaurant and Brewery was highly recommended for dinner.  Their Island Mussels and Fish/Chips were very good yet their freshly baked bread was the best in their menu.  I was able to take home one loaf for CD$5 and ordered 3 more.  The manager, Eddie, advised me that I can get them the following day at 11:00 am.  Biggest disappointment when the new manager said that nothing was told about my order and they did not prepare any extra loaves for me.

After dinner, I went to a local sports bar since there was nothing at the Econolodge Hotel. Though the hotel was very decent, it did not have a bar.

After breakfast at the hotel (which was included in the booking), I finished my walk around downtown Charlotteotwn.  I started at the Province House and since I was the only tourist at that time, I had my personal guided tour.  Passed by the historic Beaconsfield House on my way to Victoria Park.

From there, I drove back to Moncton Airport and paid the expensive CD$42.50 Confederation Bridge toll and took my flight back to Toronto.
