On our drive from Hopewell to the Confederation Bridge which connects to PEI was eventful.  The drive was great, no problems until we hit a huge patch of manure that had fallen out of a dump truck.  It was all over the road I tell ya.  Had to swerve and go on the gravel to get around it.  We did run over a huge dumping with the car and we surely paid for that later. 

We arrived at the confederation bridge and as we stepped out from the car, it stunk like crap.  It was all over the car..LOL!! Eww! 

We stopped over to the side before going over.  Got some great shots and I absolutely loved the red rocks and sand!  After a few pictures, jumped back in the car and crossed the 12.9km bridge into PEI.  As soon as we crossed the bridge we made a left and took a highway that took us right up to North Cape, the tip of PEI.  Pretty awesome I would say!  We arrived up there in no time, can't believe how small PEI really is.  It looked like on the map that it would take forever to get there.  We arrived in Tignish and there was absolutely nothing there..LOL  Pretty much all the small places having nothing in town, or it's not even a town.  We headed down to Alberton because i remembered seeing a sign of "food".  We ended up at this little dinner place and had fish n' chips!  Once we departed there, we headed down to Summerside

Summerside was actually active.  Ended up staying in the Island B&B.  The town was a ghost town but it seems like out in the east coast, everyone seems to go out to the bars around midnight.  We also found out that Mark Messier and the Stanley Cup were in Summerside because of a resident winning a contest.  How cool is that!  We ended up at Dooley's for a couple of drinks before heading back to the B&B to crash for the night!
