Looking back

We left Prince Edward Island on one of the Northumberland Ferries sailing from Wood Islands, PEI to Pictou, NS. My ancestors left the Scottish highlands and landed in Pictou, NS. My trip from PEI took 70 minutes ... their trip took 11 weeks! Sadness must have overwhelmed those Scottish highlanders looking back as their homeland faded out of sight and they sailed to an uncertain future.
