Leaving Prince Edward Island- August 11
We are now on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Lobster must also be very plentiful here for eating- even McDonalds advertises that it has a McLobster sandwich! However, I still want to go back to P.E.I.and share some more of those pictures with you. One can only enter and leave on the Confederate Trail Bridge. There was a heft toll for our big rig-$56.00. Fortunately we only had to pay it once,as we were leaving the island today. I have a picture of it posted here. Another island scene I have is a bucolic one,as diary farming is big on the island. In that picture note the gulf in the background. The last picture is a pretty typical scene on the island; pasture and hills with a village on the lake in the background. Wildflowers are plentiful on the roadsides; yellow goldenrod and cinquefoils,white yarrow and daisys,purple thistle and American vetch,to name the more common ones seen. Some of those wildflowers can be seen in the foreground of that last picture. Tomorrow we are driving on the Cabot Trail- supposedly one of the most scenic drives in north America. Will get back to you on that in a couple of days.
