Monday, Oct. 8 (Canadian Thanksgiving)
On Monday we drove off the island on the 8-mile long Confederation Bridge, known locally as "the fixed link" - AND we stocked up on Cow's ice cream before crossing into New Brunswick. Now we explored some of the Norfthumberland shore of New Brunswick, including a lunch stop at Murray Beach Provincial Park. The water is warmed by the Gulf Stream and Gulf of St. Lawrence waters, so it it not bone-chilling as it is on the Atlantic Coast. Now we had access to a good freeway, and drove across New Brunswick to the capital of Fredrericton for the night in yet another campground, that was shutting down for the season, right on the Saint John River.
