On this very cold, dreary, rainy day we took the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island, or PEI as they call it. It was the longest bridge I've ever been on, and the longest bridge in the world that crosses over water that freezes in the winter. I believe it was almost 9 miles long, and needless to say, I was relieved when we got to PEI. I have no clue how one can build a bridge over part of the ocean and have it be strong and safe, for 10 years already! The day was rainy and cloudy, but when we got to PEI we noticed right away the beauty and charm of this island. It is quiet, peaceful, unrushed, and gentle, which is their motto, The Gentle Island.
