Charlottetown to Cavendish : 70km
Sunny, sunny, sunny with a SW wind. 26C
By the time we got back to the hotel we had missed the hot breakfast, but we were still pretty full from our dinner last night.
Once we were packed up with the bikes loaded we rode north out of Charlottetown to PEI National Park where there is a paved trail beside the road and right by the sand dunes and Gulf of St Lawrence. We crossed a bridge over Covehead Bay while the tide was going out.
It was hot already and it was getting hotter so we had to keep moving. The next stretch of highway was incredibly busy and although it was very scenic it was hard to fully appreciate it. Once we got to the park in Cavendish there was another paved trail to ride along.
When we reached the end of the park the end was in sight. Just around the bend was our cottage for the night. Once we checked in we went out for dinner. It was only a 2km walk each way, but we could use the exercise. Our meal was excellent again and the restaurant – Chez Yvonne – was bustling.
Back in our room we had our usual evening chores and activities.
