Pictures from PEI & St John’s

The Wifi was so slow at the B&B in St John’s, I couldn’t do any photo uploads. So here are some…   Downtown Charlottetown   Our cottage in PEI on Tracadie Bay. We had three bedrooms!   Stanhope Beach, PEI National Park   A house in PEI with an Acadian star. The Acadians display the […]

St John’s – August 29 (Wednesday)

I checked the internet and found the location of Future Shop and directions to get there. After breakfast, we drove there and had no problems at all exchanging the GPS. Thank goodness we had decided to bring the box with all the accessories and the receipt with us! When we got into the car, we […]

North Sydney to St John’s – August 28 (Tuesday)

Lobster Dinner! – August 24 (Friday)

  We awoke to a cloudy day, a bit cooler than we had been used to. Our plan was to go to the beach but we needed to go into town first for groceries and WiFi. We wanted to get our accommodations booked for Nfld.   Murray dropped me off at the Tim Hortons on […]
