We are heading west!  Today we left PEI and drove over the Confederation Bridge (a reallllly long bridge) to the Bay of Fundy. 

PEI really gives you the shake down when you try to leave.  The bridge toll was over $40 Canadian.  Tony has the same problem here as he had in London.  He refuses to spend coins, so most of our vacation budget is in the drink holder of the car!!!  We will be spending in change the rest of the trip to try and get rid of it all.

We left early today and went to the Hopewell Rocks.  I'm no Earth science expert, but apparently the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides.  So we went to go see these rocks that you can kayak around at high tide and walk around at low tide.  We were there at sort of medium high tide and medium low tide.  The tide was moving out at about a foot every ten minutes, so Tony would throw some coins in the water and then we would look for them as the tide went out.  We are easily amused.

From there we drove though Fundy National Park (Canada has A LOT of trees!) to Fredericton, NB.  Tomorrow we have our longest drive to Montreal - 9 hours, which is great because Tony says that with all the rain, the inside of the car has taken on the atmosphere of the mountain lodge in "The Shining" to him.  Things are definately getting more populated as we drive...and also more French. 

Tony's favorite thing so far:  Whale Watching
