Maritimes Tour Journal, day two: Bridges and Boardwalks

Today (June 30), we drove from Summerside, PEI to New Brunswick – over the long Confederation Bridge. And then came right back, with a stop at Heritage Railway park to take pictures. #gallery-9 { margin: auto; } #gallery-9 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-9 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-9 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

As we travelled to St. Mary’s Church at Indian River, we passed by many lush farms and gorgeous fields of wild lupins. Our destination was a French Gothic church, built in 1902, and a Canadian historic place. It is now owned and operated by the Indian River Festival, and the Choir took the opportunity to sing Deo gratias and other selections in this beautiful setting. #gallery-10 { margin: auto; } #gallery-10 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-10 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-10 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

Our next stop was the Cavendish Boardwalk for lunch.

At Green Gables Heritage park, we toured the fictional homestead and walked through the ‘Haunted Woods.’ The choristers were fascinated by the homestead and took pictures in almost every room. The Choir sang Gai Le Rosier and Ave, Maris Stella. To finish the visit – ice cream and raspberry cordial! A number of choristers also braided their hair, “Anne style,” for the visit. #gallery-11 { margin: auto; } #gallery-11 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-11 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-11 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

On our way to Charlottetown, we drove past the fishing town of North Rustico. In the evening, we went to the famous Charlottetown Festival Production Anne of Green Gables The Musical. It was fabulous!

Tomorrow we are excited to be part of Canada Day festivities in Charlottetown!
