We left Chéticamp Nova Scotia fairly early and drove about 6 hours to Charlottetown PEI. 

We decided to cross over to PEI on the Confederation Bridge.  While there is a ferry service to the island,  that was closer, co-ordinating with the schedule proved more cumbersome than necessary so we drove the extra distance. The toll for the bridge is $46. return; payment is on return, not on entry.  It strikes me as an encouragement to stay on the island.  The Inn where we are staying in Charlottetown is located in the downtown area just up from the shore. After checking in we visited a nearby floating restaurant for a light lunch of a half pound of mussels and a beer for $9.  We then walked over to Queen Street up to the Confederation Building which unfortunately is closed for renovations. We returned along Queen and had dinner. But here we changed our menu from fish to meat. Linda and I shared a Chateaubriand.  A nice change.
