Dear Canada Blog #55 April 19th 2018.
We set off around noon for our drive from Moncton to Charlottetown, stopping briefly at a record and memorabilia store. My daughter has now decided that “vinyl is it!” And so I grabbed her what she asked for: Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and AC/DC.......she’s THIRTEEN! How amazing is that? More and more and MORE kids are into classic, killer, music. It’s soooooo refreshing. She could be listening to fabricated, bubblegum, but no, it’s Queen, Zeppelin, The Beatles, AC/DC, Bee Gees, etc; I get such a kick out of hearing; We Will Rock You, or Black Dog or even St.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, come blasting out of her room. How amazing, how UNBELIEVABLY amazing, that it came blasting out of mine, FIFTY ONE YEARS AGO!! That is astonishing and mind-boggling, all in one. Now THAT’S music withstanding the test of time.
Reached Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, around 4pm. Weather, a little chilly, a little rainy, but no snow!
Charlottetown is the capital and largest city of the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen consort of King George lll, of the United Kingdom, Charlottetown is also the capital of Prince Edward Island, and it’s on the southern coast of the province. The Province House National Historic Site hosted the Charlottetown Conference, which was held for representatives from the colonies of British North America to discuss Canadian Confederstion. The conference took place between September 1 through 9, 1864.
And so goodnight Dear Canada, until tomorrow
