June 29, 2012: Driving from Cape Breton to PEI to Moncton, NB

A travel day today, with lots of pictures from the road.  We drove from Cheticamp, NS across into New Brunswick, and then briefly across the Confederation Bridge to dinner in Summerside, Prince Edward Island.  Then over to Moncton for the evening.
 Heavy wind blowing the Canadian, Acadian, and Nova Soctian flag as we left Oceanside Chalet.
 One last view of our chalet.
