From Cheryl’s journal: “Went downtown Charlottetown via bus this morning. Lots of gift shops and restaurants. Have a nice waterfront area with a big 2019 sign. Sat on chairs and watched the sailboats sail by. There were some people actually catching mackerel off the wharf. Watched a small motorboat take out 4 or 5 sailing dinghies attached to it. The kids sailing these must have been about 6-8 years old. Looked like they were having a blast. We had chai tea at one restaurant on the street. Then went to another for fish and chips. Have to say Duke on Duckworth’s was still the best, although the fries were really good.”
“Went back to Walmart about 2 pm and left for New Glasgow Highlands Campground. Here for 2 days. Nice private wooded large lots. Have a pool and much needed laundry facilities – only 7 panties left. Had so much for lunch neither of us were hungry for dinner so just had some chips.”
