Time to back up to Wednesday morning before all the political activity in the afternoon. After finishing off the last 14kms a Run The Dream Event was held at Confederation Landing. Speakers included Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee; Michelle Pineau (left in picture below), President of the PEI Autism Society; Honourable Gerald Greenan, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. Entertainment included Cathy Hutch (right in picture below) as well as Tim Chaisson and Morning Fold.
In other PEI news- The first cruise ship of the year (1 of 37 scheduled) docked today. The Maasdam is cruising from Fort Lauderdale to Montreal on a 13-day voyage. I finally figured out why gas prices are only $1.24 per litre! In PEI the government regulates the pricing and prices only change on the 1st and 15th of the month. Heard on the radio that they are going to $1.30 today.
It is hard to believe another province is done! Today is a special day off from running for an event in Springhill, NS! I will be filling you in about that tomorrow! Very excited! Nothing but sunny blue skies!
The Dream Continues....
