Prince Edward Island

Posted on Posted in North America Expedition 2007

Visited Prince Edward Island, or P.E.I. for locals, driving on a few local dirt roads. The island is beautiful. Looks a bit like England to me. Drove from down to Charolettetown then over to Wood Islands where I boarded a ferry to Nova Scotia. The toll collector asked if everything up top was secure then mentioned the water was a bit ruff. This was the first time I have been on open water. A little nerve racking, but no big deal. Fallowing the procession of cars I drove onto the lower deck. Engines rumbled thought the hull as I climb to the observation deck. Once we were on open water I had to use the bathroom, which was an interesting experience. Swaying back and fourth is alright on deck where you can see the horizon, but below I acted as if I had been drinking since noon. Bouncing off the walls and staggering all over I found the restroom. When I attempting to stand up from the toilet I lost my balance. This was one of those moments where you can’t help but laugh at yourself. Making landfall I left to find a camp. Once I setup camp I met a fellow who invited me over for Corn Beef and Cabbage with his wife and friends. Dave was on his way back home from New Foundland. All of them were originally from there and had a bit of a Scottish sounding accent. We sat up and talked for a few hours about all kinds of things. These folks were awesome and I was glad to meet them.
