400 Kms of Fun

Bob and I spent part of the day on a jaunt to PEI's west shore.  We went up to North Cape which has Canada's wind institute.  The sight might not be lovely, but serves a purpose.
On the way we saw all these fishermen on a river.  Being landlubbers we have no idea what they are fishing for:  oysters?
We saw lighthouses and here are the ones at Tignish, North Cape, and West Point.  We were looking forward to a stop at Miminegash as I had read on the internet that it's famous for seaweed pie.  After nineteen years of selling this pie, the Women in Support of Fishing disbanded so no pie for us.

I needed a walk by the water so put my flip flops in a protected area so they wouldn't be sandy.

We visited the bottle houses in little Cap-Egmont and liked this attraction a lot.  A fellow created three buildings using tens of thousands of bottles.
The little chapel made me reverent while ...
the tavern made us thirsty.
The gardens around the buildings were still lovely ...
and made us smile with unexpected surprises.
Once we got to Charlottetown, we met up with Joanne and Rod plus three advisors from Manitoba to have supper at this pub which has been featured on "You Gotta Eat Here."  Our appetizer was one which John Catucci also had:  french fries with curry dip.
Tonight, while the students had a dance, advisors had a kitchen party at the PEI Brewing Company.  Beer, nibblies, and live music were on the agenda.
