We had a great lunch on a patio in Charlottetown followed by ice cream at Cows. Then we headed to the ferry.
The ferry ride to Nova Scotia was about 75 minutes long. We did see a few porpoises swimming, but no big whales. We're hoping that we will see whales when we take the ferry from NS to NB at the end of our trip. ...

It still sounded like it was raining, but when we went to have showers, we realized the majority of "rain" was now water dripping off of the trees onto our tent. When we got back, we finished emptying the tent, took down the tarp, quickly packed up the tent (before too many drops landed on it), and tried to give the tarp a good shake before folding it ...
