We have been fortunate enough to continue to have beautiful fall days so we chose to do a road trip to PEI’s capital city, Charlottetown.
Our first sign that we were going to have a good day was when we managed to find some free parking for the day in the historic centre, not an easy task. After a short walk along the waterfront the first stop was the most dominant building in that part of the city, St. Dunston’s Basilica Cathedral.
After our drive there and initial exploration we had lunch in the Olde Dublin Pub. Great beer, ok food, and a great view of the back of the Basilica.
As I mentioned in a previous post, there is a lot of decorating going on around the province in relation to harvest time and Halloween. Part of that is the City of Charlottetown is having a Scarecrow Festival. There are more then 1000 scarecrows around the city. It certainly makes for some interesting viewing as you walk.
I look forward to returning to Charlottetown after brushing up on more of our founding history. The old centre is filled with connections to that historic time and it seems like a waste not to seize the opportunity.
