Our second day of driving wasn't nearly as long as the first. We left our hotel in Edmundston and reached The Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island in the afternoon.

It took my breath away when I got my first glimpse of the red shores of Prince Edward Island. Pictures just don't do this island justice. Ever since I first saw the television show Road to Avonlea as a little girl, it has been my dream to someday go to PEI. So needless to say I was so excited about this trip. I may have even squealed a little, ha.
Check out this video from the Tourism PEI, Youtube Channel:
Our hotel was in the capitol city of Charlottetown, so we had some more diving do to once we got off the bridge, but this was ok with us because there was so much to see. I was so in awe of all the beautiful gardens and farm fields. The people of this province certainly take pride in their homes and land.
Once again we stayed at The Best Western, this time in downtown Charlottetown. Unfortunately this location wasn't as nice as the hotel we stayed at in New Brunswick. However its location was only a 5 minute walk to the harbor front which was great.

After checking in we walked down to the waterfront. We did some shopping and had a yummy feed of potato skins and mussels.

That concludes our first day on Prince Edward Island. Stay tuned for my next post where we take in the sights and all things L.M. Montgomery.
