Dedicated To Foodies

This is my final day on the Island, and I decided I would dedicate this post to foodies, especially my friend Barbara who has been obsessed with finding out what I have been eating. To tell the truth, the usual camping fare is mundane and rarely worth talking about, so tonight I decided to go gourmet with a wood fired pizza from Piatto.
But because it is my last night on the Island the thought of sitting in a restaurant seemed like a waste of beautiful scenery so I asked for it “to go”. And for foodies everywhere I carried it 3km to the lookout on the cliff. The last tourists were scurrying off to find dinner for themselves and I had the cliff, and the ocean view to myself. I ate my dinner to the sounds of the cliff swallows and the waves gently lapping the shore, a cool breeze easing the heat from the day.
With one last look at the beach, I headed back to camp to pack as much as possible in readiness for my departure tomorrow. It has been a short, but wonderful stay on the Island.
To date: 1,385 km by motorcycle and just over 217,000 steps by foot (if my math is correct, based on today’s 31.7 km, that’s about 165.8 km). Today’s hike was the ‘Haunted Woods’ and ‘Lover’s Lane’ as described in the works of Lucy Maude Montgomery.

  2. Looks like a tasty pizza. And the green in the last photo is fantastic. I don't think we ever get anything like that around here. Every time you post pictures from PEI makes me really want to visit. One of these years...

  6. Richard, despite the heat, it hasn’t been dry and the Island is lush. Whenever you and Bridget decide to make the journey ... I’ve become quite the little tour guide this trip and I will meet you there šŸ˜Š

  7. See Barbara, told you the food pics would come, but they had to be blog worthy (hotdogs just don’t cut it.)

  8. Geoff, don’t talk to me about waistlines ... so easy to expand, so difficult to contract. But the pizza was worth it ... and I had left overs for the road.
