Prince Edward Island (PEI) is located off the eastern coast of Canada, nestled between the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Québec, Newfoundland and Labrador in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Prince Edward Island is in the Atlantic Time Zone. The maritime province is the smallest in the nation in both land area and population (excluding the territories). PEI is the 104th largest island in the world, and Canada's 23rd largest island. The island was named for Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn (1767–1820), the fourth son of King George III and the father of Queen Victoria.
The sign on the Confederation Bridge blinks from English to French.

The Confederation Bridge spans the Abegweit Passage of Northumberland Strait, linking Prince Edward Island with mainland New Brunswick, Canada. It was commonly referred to as the Fixed Link by residents of Prince Edward Island prior to its official naming. Construction took place from the autumn of 1993 to the spring of 1997, costing C$1.3 billion. The 8 mile long bridge opened on 31 May 1997. Most of the curved bridge is 131 feet above water. Crossing takes approximately 10 minutes.

Exiting the Confederation toll bridge, the two RV Gypsies found themselves in the town of Borden-Carleton and the Gateway Village Visitor Centre and shopping complex. All street signs on PEI were in both English and French. Everybody the two RV Gypsies met, spoke English and were very friendly.

Anne of Green Gables is a best selling novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery published in 1908. Set in 1878, it was written as fiction for readers of all ages, but in recent decades has been considered a children's book. Montgomery found her inspiration for the book on an old piece of paper that she had written at a young age, describing a couple that were mistakenly sent an orphan girl instead of a boy, yet decided to keep her. Montgomery also drew upon her own childhood experiences in rural Prince Edward Island. Montgomery used a photograph of Evelyn Nesbit, which she had clipped from New York’s Metropolitan Magazine, and pasted the framed clipping on the wall of her bedroom, as the model for the face of Anne Shirley, the book's main character.
