Welcome to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Welcome to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Dunstan’s Basilica is located at 45 Great George Street, just a short stroll from the port and our ship, Holland America’s MS Maasdam. As you can see from the photos below the exterior doesn’t come close to even hinting what treasures you’ll find inside.

We left the Basilica and continued on our way through Charlottetown. Almost immediately I came upon one of my favorite old English sports cars, the GT6 made by the Triumph Motor Company. The GT6 was a fastback, six-cylinder version of the Triumph Spitfire roadster. The version shown here appears to be the Mark II version, called the GT6+ in the U.S.

    Lovely photos and a lovely town, apparently.

    I enjoyed your OH Canada tour – think Quebec City would be my favorite. And I loved the old sports cars.

    • Thanks, Peg. As to sports car, are you referring to the Triumph GT6 in Charlottetown, or the E-Type Jaguar in Québec? Both are favorites of mine, as I’m partial to ’60s and ’70s English sports cars.
