Prince Edward Island – Day 9 – Souris > Basin Head>North Cape Coastal Drive

I slept like a baby last night. Can you believe we ate breakfast before heading out? With the accommodation, breakfast was included and it was spectacular as you can imagine. Fresh yogurt with granola, assorted fresh breads, French press coffee, eggs made your way, bacon (sorry vegetarians) and hash browns.

Waving goodbye to the Inn at Bay Fortune we headed up to Basin Head Provincial Park to Singing Sands Beach were we walked along the sand. Next was East Point Lighthouse. This was our last day on PEI and our longest driving day. Teacup Rock was on the agenda but we found it hard to get in, so we cut across the island along beautiful red dirt roads to get ourselves to the North Cape Coastal Drive. On a friend’s recommendation, we drove north to Kildare Capes, a hidden gem. We were to look for a white church, park, walk past the cemetery and through a path. The reward was a beautiful view and amazing red rock formations. Thanks Justin! Time to say farewell to PEI. We wound our way down to the Confederation Bridge and over to New Brunswick. We had to stop in Shediac for a photo with the giant lobster. Thank you for driving today Shannon. I took on the role of moose watcher in NB as it was sunset when we arrived. We learned there are no moose or deer on PEI.
