I crossed the border and forgot to fill up on gas before I went across. I forgot that prices were by liter over there and thus very expensive. I was also surprised at how easy the crossing was
After a nice drive, I came up to the bridge for Prince Edward Island. I hadn't stopped yet that morning. Subsequently I didn't have any Canadian dollars and I just realized that the bridge to PEI was a toll bridge so I got off at the last exit and stocked up as well. Turns out that the toll is only to leave the island and they accept credit anyway.
And then went I got back toward the bridge I saw a sign that said it cost 41.50 to cross the bridge for cars. I was confused, so I stopped at the last exit before the bridge. Maybe it was for trucks and car rates were only 20 bucks. Well I found out it was correct. It was that expensive to go to PEI. Yikes. I couldn't justify the price, so I opted to not drive across the bridge. So I took pictures at the vantage point at that rest area and then found out they had a shuttle to the other side. It was only 4 bucks a pop so I did that instead. Of course, it only gets to me Gateway Village, but I get to say I crossed the bridge and was on Prince Edward Island. That was the goal anyway.
