    Chez Camille vs Seafood Paradise Cap Pele, NB

    In case anyone hasn’t noticed on my travel blog, I love seafood … specifically, the fish and chips (also called FnC) variety.

We’ve seen so many unique mailboxes that I almost became a little “mailboxed out”, in the same way I’ve gotten “Templed out” in Cambodia and Thailand or “Waterfalled Out” in Iceland or “Ruined Out” …

    Driving the North Cape Coastal Drive, PEI
