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.
Here is today’s slide show, including more shots of St. Dunstan’s Basilica:
