Picture from previous blog description in phone booth!
No pictures of our dining experience but have to talk about dinner last night (vegetarian friends ignore our dinner description!). As soon as we drove across the 12 km bridge to PEI (Prince Edward Island) we saw signs for fresh lobster, at restaurants, at fast food place (yes, even at Subway), fish markets, grocery stores. Getting to our B& B, which is along a bike path that circles the island and we won’t be riding due to drizzle wimps (Jan & Joe are whining!!!!), we asked about good places to eat lobster. Headed for town, driving through strip mall & suburban sprawl, finally getting to the 10 blocks of wonderful, scenic, quaint old town and wharf area. Stopped at recommended restaurant on the wharf; they had outrageous prices – the smallest lobster dinner was for two (4 – 1 lbs lobsters, mussels, sides for $119) with way too much food. Found smaller pub in town where we could get appetizer of mussels (still was 1.5 lbs) and one and half pound lobster with sides for $28.99. Joe and I shared mussels and lobster, plus he had seafood chowder and beers. Jan had her own lobster to herself!
Did I mention the taxes? We now know why Canadians have great healthcare, taxes on taxes on everything. We were so full from dinner we couldn’t even eat local, world famous “Cow Ice Cream”.
Breakfast was freshly made waffles with home drawn maple syrup, fresh strawberry and rhubarb compote, fresh fruit and optional yoghurt. Now we are going to roll into rental car and drive to northern area of middle PEI area. If you look at map, PEI is 3 ‘bulbs’ stuck together, we’re staying in the middle.
