It was a cold, foggy morning when we left the island. We took the Wood Islands Ferry over to Nova Scotia.
It was quite crowded, so Erica and I ended up leaving our bags at a table to save our spot while we watched Prince Edward Island dissolve into the fog behind us. That’s how we met a wonderful couple from Ontario. The husband was a dead ringer for Cliff Clavin. They chastised us for leaving our bags unattended and laughed when we shrugged and said, “Eh, it’s Canada.” They said that attitude definitely wouldn’t work in Toronto, even if it is Canada. We had a lovely chat with them and got some advice from their recent experience in Nova Scotia.
I hated to say good-bye to PEI. When I was planning our trip there, I had a hard time knowing how to split our time between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. I think I could definitely have used an extra day or two (or seven or fourteen) on PEI, but there was also a lot to look forward to in Nova Scotia.
