We talked about stopping in Moncton to test out Magnetic Hill but then decided to just go on over the bridge to PEI. It sounds cool: when you put your car in neutral, it appears to travel up the hill. A novelty, for sure, but we didn't think it was worth our time to do it.

On our way back to the campground we took a little drive and ended up seeing this:
