PEI trip (part 1)

Since our time in Canada is limited, we are trying to see as much as possible of this beautiful country. This summer, we had an adventure driving twenty hours to reach Prince Edward Island.  PEI is an island in the eastern part of Canada sandwiched between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.  We decided to break up the trip and spend a few nights in Quebec City and a night in New Brunswick.  To add to the adventure, we brought along our pop-up camper and camped in it along the way.  My mom and her husband met us in PEI.  Included in this post are the pictures from our journey through Quebec and New Brunswick.
 Our first stop was in Quebec City, the country's oldest city.  It has a strong European flavor, and we enjoyed walking around the downtown area.

 In New Brunswick, we camped at Fundy National Park and saw a bit of the extreme tidal patterns.  The Bay of Fundy has the world's largest tides.

Close to Fundy is Hopewell Rocks.  This area has the same extreme tides, and unique rock formations have been chiseled out as the tide brings the water back and forth daily.  The picture here is taken at high tide.

I'm so glad to see some pictures of your trip! The kids are getting a great education. So glad you as a family had this time together--and with Charlotte and Sam. Keep 'em coming!
