Confederation Bridge

This is the bridge that crosses the Northumberland Strait from Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick and it is 11.5 kilometres long.

To get onto the island is free but to get off it you have to leave by either the ferry from Wood Island or via the Confederation Bridge which has a toll.

This is quite a modern bridge and we were surprised to find out that it was only completed in 1997.

This is a memorial at the base of the bridge to the Quartermasters and has the names of people engraved into bricks that have given service to the island crossing.

People sometimes come over by ferry and leave by the bridge or the other way round but we will be leaving on Friday the same way we came via the ferry from Wood Island.
