What a beautiful way to say "Goodbye" to Perce' and the province of Quebec. By the time I find my shoes and get my camera, the height of this sunrise has already passed, but it is still an awesome way to start our day.
Now it's time to make the final drive around the south side of the Gaspe' peninsula, fortunately with no more hills to climb and descend, and head into New Brunswick. As we cross the border, I don't see the usual "Welcome to New Brunswick" sign, so miss taking a picture of it.
With our eyes focused on our GPS, we completely miss the turn prior to a rail road trestle our GPS wants us to go under. With a clearance of only 3.3 meters, we have to stop and disconnect the car, turn around in the middle of the street, and figure out what to do next.
As the usual crowds gathered, I explain that we are providing the Sunday afternoon entertainment. Everyone was kind and we promptly get directions to a manageable underpass. We are out of here in 15 minutes. Ah, this is the "adventure
" part of travelling!
With a brief overnight at a Walmart in Bathurst, NB, we do some shopping (we always find something to buy when we overnight at a Walmart) and head for the Confederation Bridge for our first glimpse of Prince Edward Island (PEI).
Now on PEI, we immediately head for the KOA near Charlotteville, walk around the campground for about an hour, and decide not to stay. The manager has a portable transformer hooked up to his rig which tells us the power is awful, and we don't like any of the sites; either too many trees or uneven terrain. As Canada seems to always charge more for camping, we elect to leave, and head for the Walmart on PEI located in the town of Summerside.
While there, I go online and discover the Linkletter Provincial Park nearby. We immediately see what we like and make reservations for the next several days. We have full hookups with 50 amps and an oceanfront view!
