Prince William & Kate in Canada Day 4 Quebac City and Prince Edward Island

After a night cruising sown the St. Lawrence Seaway from Montreal to Quebec City, Prince William and Catherine arrived to a warm welcome. After a Sunday morning service with the crew they began their day. The visit included the 
Maison Dauphine community center and a freedom ceremony marking the relationship of England and Quebec City. The couple then flew to Prince Edward Island.

The couple will be staying at 
Dalvay-by-the-Sea with some fun activities planned like a competition between dragon boats with Will & Kate as helmsmen on different teams and a helicopter demonstration with William participating.

A friend blogger, Sandi, lives on PEI and shared about the hotel they are staying at. For that post, visit Sandi's Rose Chintz Cottage.
