Charlottetown Stroll

Yesterday afternoon I took a stroll around downtown Charlottetown PEI, Canada. Charlottetown is where the founding fathers met in 1867 to form the country of Canada, referred to as the confederation of Canada.  Before that is was British territory. The big difference between the forming of Canada and the forming of the US was that the confederation of Canada was accomplished without killing anybody.

Following are some random pictures That I snapped as I was walking around town.
