August 7th, 8th

08 Aug

We were happy to leave Borden and sail under the Confederation Bridge yesterday. Here are a couple of more pictures of it.

It only took a couple of hours to get to Summerside – I would totally recommend this place as the marina is very clean and has all the services (such as electricity and water hookups). Also, the grocery store and propane filling station is within walking distance.

Summerside is very pretty – there is a long boardwalk along the water’s edge that goes for about five kilometres. There is also a bike path and of course, there is the Confederation Trail – the old railway bed that has been turned into a cycling route. It is gravel but very nice. I went for a big bike ride on it yesterday in one direction and then came back on a paved farm road.

We went out for supper last night as it was our 27th anniversary and we each had the lobster dinner. Seafood is definitely agreeing with me although it was a lot of work cracking the shell open.

We are staying here today and possibly heading out tomorrow back towards Wood Islands ferry dock. It will be a long day but we are skipping anchoring at Borden – too smelly there! Plus at the Wood Islands ferry dock, we can go to Crabby’s again and also see how the ospreys are doing.

Anyway, all is good – it is a beautiful day so I better get on the bike again!
