A time Traveller appears before me
Time Traveller: "What year is this?" Asked the traveller,
Me:"2020 says I."
"Ah, the first year of 'Quarantine'!" Says he.
Me: " " :(
|Overlooking the Greek River on Point Pleasant Road PE
Day Tripping: Charlottetown to Calhoon's Wharf and return.
|A late Saturday lunch with the geese!
And so Caroline and I started the season with our first of many weekend rides, but we also chose to ride responsibly, and that to us, meant social distancing and avoiding unnecessary stops and use of common facilities, such as coffee shops and restaurants, so we packed along a late lunch snack, and a thermos full of tea, then headed East to locate a spot to get tucked in to the grub along with a nice cuppa.
|It's early yet, but some seed potatoes are going in this weekend
|A tributary of the Greek River
We stopped a few times along Point Pleasant road to take some pictures, as I was enjoying how clear water looked.

from Point Pleasant Road looking North East
|Thankfully you can't zoom in and see how dirty these are. :)
|Look how clear that water is!
|You can still see some of the wind damage we experienced here last September
that took out quite a few mature trees. There are many falls in the woods.
We headed back to "Calhoon's Wharf Road" that led us out to an isolated unused fishing wharf that had a couple of swimming rafts still piled up on it. A perfect place to have our "Social distancing" lunch and tea break.
|The Versys is going on to 97,800 kilometres today.
|Do not zoom in, Quarantine hair on display.
It was getting on to four o'clock and somehow we had expected to be up around East Point and on our way back via Northside Road (16) but that was clearly not going to happen, so we packed everything up and decided to follow Caroline out to Gaspereaux PE along 17 that would take us into Montague.
|Murray River North PE
|Poverty Beach Road and 17
So we meet a couple of other riders out braving the chill Spring air
|Lobster season starts at the end of the April, which is very soon now.
I stopped just south of Gaspereaux on 17 to get a couple of pictures of Graham's Pond and the wharf there.
Cheers from the Island!
And that is where the rides will stay until we put this virus behind us and it becomes safe to travel again.We also packed our food and declined to stop anywhere for incidentals. We paid at the pump while refuelling and were very careful not to bare hand the fuel pumps there. I have to admit the roadside thermos of tea and snacks was a lot of fun!
