Not much happened on through NB except for a nice easy drive on TCH Hwy 2. We decided to stop in the Moncton Costco for a browse and mall walk break. The GPS took us right to the Costco but it wasn't there. It had moved last November.
They had the new address posted, on Granite Drive, so we did a route to that address. Unfortunately the GPS didn't know anything about any Granite Drive, so it took us to Greenwich Dr instead. Very kind. That's in a residential subdivision on the edge of Moncton, no Costco there. The Garmin GPS maps were definitely lacking here. I had updated the GPS maps before we left home, so they were as current as they get.
Google Maps on the phone knew all about the new Costco location when we thought to try Google. If you're looking for the Moncton Costco, it's at 140 Granite Drive, just north of #2 at ext 459.
It didn't seem too long after that before the PEI bridge showed up:

Once over the bridge we visited Gateway Village, the PEI tourism welcome spot. It was pretty busy today, with lots of big-rig RV's around.

Cathie's sister Nancy and her hubby Pat live in Stratford PEI, just across the harbour from Charlottetown. There's always something to see around here:
|2 cruise ships in at Charlottetown. Only one at a time can moor now, so building another mooring where the cranes are visible|
