Canadian Maritimes - Day 8
12 August 2016
We took off from Charlottetown to get on another ferry in Woods Islands. The ferry took us and our car from PEI back down to Nova Scotia where we drove to our final destination, Halifax, the only other place we'd stay for 2 nights. This worked out well because our hotel, The Hollis was all suites. We walked around the waterfront at lunch time eating another Dave's lobster roll with the most Canadian of all dishes... poutine. We did some walking around the city for the rest of the afternoon. We had yet another seafood dinner out on a patio overlooking the water and then retired to spacious suite to watch some of the Summer Olympics and rest up for an exhausting final day in Halifax..
