The last rays

I tried to slow down the day, kind of like taking a bandaid off slowly. Oops. That’s not a good metaphor at all. Let me try that again. Like the last rays of the sunset or the final bars of a song we lingered in the day, enjoying all it had to offer. That’s better!

Today was the last ride day, a combo of trail and road. We clocked 35 with a fair amount of costal hills. But so worth it to find the perfect beach!

Almost as far as the eye could see

Then onward and back to the trail for the last few kilometers. Sailed in easily and then were disappointed (but not surprised) when the museum at Elmira was closed. This is the shoulder season even if the weather today said summer. At least the worker there let us refill our water bottles for the next stage.

The final 9 kms were to the East Lighthouse where we celebrated with a brew. We’ve now seen lighthouses on the north, west and east coast. We didn’t manage the south coast at all but it was only an 11 day trip and it’s not that small.

Wooden crates abound on this island as they are found both in farming and fishing. Turns out the stage at the Tell Tale Harbour Musical comedy borrowed from the usual sight. It was well done and super funny and a great way to spend our last evening on Prince Edward Island.

Tomorrow a recap and then back to intermittent occasional random postings!

I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

      1. We rented a cottage for 3 nights when the kids were young. It was not on the beach, but had a short trail to reach it. We played there for hours. 😊
