Join us as we drive along the south shore of Prince Edward Island toward the Confederation Bridge.
We will see lovely seascapes and rolling farmland. We pause for a photo of St. Martin of Tours stone church and admire the view of Governor’s Island and St. Peter’s Island. Matos Winery which produces award-winning wines and liqueurs with a Portuguese flair will be our next stop.
We will learn about the ice boats, Prince Edward Island’s communication with the mainland until modern ferries were instituted in 1917. We carry on to Borden-Carleton where the renowned Confederation Bridge replaced the ferry service in 1997. This exceptional feat of engineering is the longest bridge over ice-covered water in the world.
On the way back to Charlottetown we visit Victoria-by-the-Sea. This scenic village has several boutique shops including a chocolate shop and several restaurants where lunch can be arranged.
Nearing Charlottetown we can make a stop at Cows Ice Cream and Cheese factory. Both are highly praised Island products and are national award winners in their class.
Then it’s back to our departure point through Victoria Park and the downtown core.
