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.

Canada's Best Ice Cream?

By the time we hit Charlottetown we'd spent a week eating our way across Prince Edward Island. We had over-indulged in locally raised beef in Brackley Beach, eggs from free range hens in Bay Fortune and oysters we'd pulled out of Salutation Cove. So you'd think we would pass on ice cream for lunch.... not when confronted with a sign outside Cows claiming the best ice cream in Canada!

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"
