I hit the Tim Horton's on Grafton Street in Charlottetown with the idea of riding towards the East side of the island, but with no real fixed plan.

I'm in a terribly lazy mood, so rather than doing a write up just this minute, I'm going to publish this and catch up on the descriptions later on.
I found myself heading East along the TransCanada out of Charlottetown, but perhaps I'd head out to the Point Prim Lighthouse? Nah. Been there, done that a few times. I'll keep going and head out to the Wood Islands Ferry and have a poke around. Most days I'm too busy unloading and trying to beat the RVs off the boat that I've never bothered with it before. Seems legit, lets go!
|Spot the ferry and win a prize!|
|Can you see the leaking fork seals from here?|
|Wood Islands Lighthouse|
|Family day at the beach|
And they are still heading away from me. Maximum zoomage!
I left the Canada Geese behind and headed further east, until the road turns to gravel and you reach the access road to yet another lighthouse,
The lighthouse used to be up on the right in this shot, but was relocated by the preservation society in the not too distant past. You can see it in the shot below if you squint hard.
|Cape Bear Lighthouse on the point.|
|Before they kidnapped the lighthouse and moved it. Circa 2012|
|Further East on Black Brook Road|
|Black Brook Road leads you East to the very Eastern point of Murray Head.|
|The Versys is heeling over in the wind!|
|Oh! I can see it!|
|Looking West towards Beach Point|
|They won't work this high past the hightide line, will they?|
|The "Beach" that gives the Point it's name, or 50% of it's name|
|St. Elmos Fire|
|And it's all over for another season. If you sit down to fresh lobster, it wasn't caught here after last weekend.|
If interested, here is my photo album of a day spent on the boat trying to help out (stay out of Danny and Robert's way while trying earn my lunch)
For your viewing pleasure, I've added a short video from a few years ago showing how the pros do it.
IIRC, someone had laid a trap line across Danny and Robert's line, so the winch hauled up both trap lines. It took them a very short time to address the problem and get back to work.
|These are more colourful than Danny's traps. Sorry dude.|
Right, time to book it back home, but I stopped in and ordered a tea with milk at my friends place before hitting the highway for a straight run back. Thanks again for the tea and the chat!
