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
House on my way to
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.
