Everything You Wanted to Know About Oysters in Under 6 Minutes

Thanks to the people at Experience PEI and Tourism PEI my daughter and I had a chance to go out on the waters of Salutation Cove with the men who fish for oysters. Back on land, at Future Seafoods, we graded, cleaned, shucked and (of course!) ate our catch. Although the wind and rain swept across the cove it was one of the highlights of our road trip to Prince Edward Island.

You Too Can Own a Racehorse

One of the surprising highlights of our road trip to Prince Edward Island, Canada was the evening we spent at the Charlottetown racetrack as "owners" of a race horse. We toured the stables, talked to the drivers, had an amazing meal and perhaps - you'll have to watch to find out - stepped into the winners circle. I even got a chance to sit with the starting judge in the mobile gate. (This is the high resolution version of an earlier video entitled "You Too Can Own a Racehorse"

The Inn at Bay Fortune - a Testament to Excellence

When David Wilmer first saw the building that would become the Inn at Bay Fortune it had gone through a number of incarnations. First as the summer home of Elmer Harris, later the year-round residence of Colleen Dewhurst and finally as an abandoned tumble-down ghost haunting PEI's eastern shore. What he and his team accomplished in rescuing the property from the wrecking ball is nothing short of remarkable.

UPDATE:

Since we published this article there have been some changes to the Inn, notably the return of chef Michael Smith. He and his wife are now the innkeepers.
