Sunday morning was an early wake up. I walked the 1.5 kilometres to the shuttle pick up point. From there we were shuttled to the starting point (gathering spot) for all of those making the trek from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island. The start was delayed by 30 minutes....then finally we walked about a kilometre to get to the starting point. I was in the middle of the crowd (it was a thick mass of people) when the clock started. For the first kilometre I spent a lot of my time weaving from one side of the bridge to the other trying to get past people who were not trying to walk the bridge quickly. Then I shook off most of the slow walkers and could set a steady pace. There was still some weaving back and forth, but at least it was no longer constant. When I had walked 13 km the time was 2 hours and 3 seconds. That had been my goal, but because of the amount of weaving I had done I was not yet across the bridge. My total distance was 13.3 km in 2 hours and 2 minutes...not bad for a 61 year old.

@Hannihar my daughter and I traveled for two days to PEI for the opportunity to walk/run across the bridge. While there we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. (My daughter has lived nearby for 18 months several years ago). We observed many homes for sale. Long story, short. My husband and I have just purchased a home just a 10 minute (or less) drive from the bridge. We will be relocating when my husband retires in May.
