Day 11 - Charlottetown - Campbellton (New Brunswick)

Distance: ~ 500 km

Today we visited the remaining parts of the Prince Edward Island National Park and took several pictures along the way.

PEI National Park is not very big in size, but is rather a narrow strip along the coast providing good opportunities for swimmin, hiking and biking.

We also visited the Green Gables National Historic Site - you might know the famous book "Anne of Green Gables". Though Anne is only an imaginary character some of the places described in the book like the Green Gables farm or the Lovers Lane are real. We were amazed by the huge crowd of people visiting this place. No other attraction we visited on our trip was so crowded!

On our way out of the park we spotted this red fox just next to the road.

As it started to rain we left PEI early. To leave the island we did not take the ferry, but drove over the Confederation Bridge connecting PEI and New Brunswick. For the 13 km on the bridge we were charged more than 40 Dollars! Considering this our German friends should not complain somuch about the Brennerautobahn toll :-)

In Shediac, New Brunswick we made a short lunch break. Shediac is a small village with French influence and you can see many beautiful houses along the streets.

On our way to Campbellton we also passed Kouchibouguak National Park which has similar characteristics as PEI National Park.

By today we visited all Atlantic Provinces (Quebec, New Foundland and Labrador, Novia Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick) on this journey.
