This morning we explored the amazing variety of inventions on display at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. We're all aware of he invented the telephone, but who knew he designed hovercraft, airplanes, and multiple other inventions.
Afterward, we took take a short ferry ride to Prince Edward Island, the “Land Cradled on the Waves.”
We arrived in Charlottetown, the capital and largest city of the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Charlottetown was originally an unincorporated town that incorporated as a city in 1855. It was famously the site of the Charlottetown Conference in 1864, the first gathering of Canadian and Maritime statesmen to debate the proposed Maritime Union and the more persuasive British North American Union, now known as Canadian Confederation. From this, the city adopted as its motto "Cunabula Foederis" – "Birthplace of Confederation".
A lovely dinner at the pier and a short walk back to the hotel finished a perfect day!
