Greenwich is located in a national park, enabling the protection of its fragile sand dunes and wetlands. We biked along a short trail and onto a meandering boardwalk leading to a beautiful beach. Due to the weather, there were only a few other tourists around.
The couple who took the above picture had very strong Eastern European accents so I asked where they were visiting from. It turns out they were from Toronto. When they asked where we were from, I answered with Saskatoon - sparing them the unabridged version.
It turns out the man had a joke about Saskatoon...
|Heading for the dunes|
After a short walk on the beach we hit the road as we had a 60 km journey ahead of us.
|Surf and Turf: I like how this shot captures both potatoes and mussels being farmed (St. Peter's Bay)|
We headed east on the Confederation Trail towards East Point. The trail stretches from one side of PEI to the other and follows abandoned railway lines. The tracks along our route had been removed with the exception of a short section near a railway museum in Elmira.
|PEI's famous red clay (the flash makes it look brown, but it really was red in-person)|
We got off the trail in Elmira and biked a few more kilometres down the road to the Harbour Lights Guest House. We were hungry, sore and in desperate need of showers. The excitement and relief of seeing our B&B was like coming across an oasis in the desert.
Day Three to follow tomorrow...
