The views offered of Charlottetown Harbour from Beaconsfield’s fourth-floor cupola are noteworthy.

[PHOTO] Seen from high above Charlottetown

At the very beginning of my flight back to Toronto from Charlottetown, I was able to take some good photos of the world wheeling below me as my Westjet flight rose south over Charlottetown Harbour towards the Northumberland Strait.

Charlottetown’s Victoria Park can be a wonderful place to stroll through on a calm summer’s day.

[PHOTO] Five photos from the Brighton shore, Charlottetown

The west-end Charlottetown neighbourhood of Brighton is probably one of the most prosperous neighbourhoods on the Island, filled with sizable lots filled by large homes which do not look outwardly to have been subdivided into apartments. Its western end, West Street, borders almost directly on Charlottetown Harbour, and at the southern end of West Street, right about here, you can cross over to the shore with a minute’s walk and watch the harbour.

Down on the Charlottetown waterfront (1)

The Confederation Landing Park is the centrepiece of a large-scale restoration of the Charlottetown waterfront. Where this park stands now, twenty years ago there were only rusting oil drums.

Down on the Charlottetown waterfront (2)

Confederation Landing Park takes its name from the fact that it is here where the delegates to the Charlottetown Conference of 1864–the conference where delegates from across British North America set the process of Canadian unification in progress–disembarked.

Here, looking north past the Peakes Wharf complex of shops the undistinguished dozen stories of the Delta Prince Edward are visible. (Great George Street, which leads to Province House, would start just to the right.)
