    At Cape Jourimain, there is a small museum with an interesting exhibit about ice boats crossing between P.E.I. and New Brunswick to deliver the mail.

    People were so much tougher back then! Fall through the ice get all wet, just climb out, keep walking, wait for your clothes to freeze solid to block the wind lol. Cool post thanks for sharing this!
