Confederation Bridge, completed in 1997, 12.9
kilometers (8 miles) long, cost $1 Billion and took 4 years.
Before it was built, ferries carried people and cargo

Moose signs are everywhere in New Brunswick, but all we saw was moose poo!
However, we didn't see any moose signs on Prince Edward
Island, so we assume there weren't any moose there.
There seemed to be a pretty strong Irish influence in PEI. Very clean
and neat, the farms kind of reminded of Amish farms, so well kept, but
they used modern equipment.
