In a previous post, I mentioned that Richard and I were preparing to walk 140 kilometres of Prince Edward Island’s Camino, The Island Walk. We have now arrived in Charlottetown and are ready to begin walking tomorrow until May 30.
Due to the nature of this hike, I will take a short break from my regular blogging activities. Sadly, I will miss the upcoming What’s On Your Plate and Word of the Year linkups. The links ups will continue with my cohosts. I encourage you to check them out here: Deb, Sue, Jo, and Debbie.
Not to be a complete slacker, my current plan is to send brief ‘postcards’ from this adventure as time, energy and available wifi allow. I will also post to Instagram (she says with confidence).
Here is today’s postcard from Charlottetown. We stayed at the Rodd Royalty which included hot breakfast and easy access to both the airport and the trail. It also has an indoor pool. Tomorrow we hike to Mt. Stewart (32 km).
Yesterday I wore a tank top and shorts. Today I wore a fleece, long pants, raincoat and toque. Good thing that our backpacks were prepared for a variety of weather options.
The lunch photo is from The Gallery Cafe (downtown). Prices are reasonable, bread is homemade on site and there are plenty of vegan options. I highly recommend it.
Did you spot “Connolly” on the Churchill Arms building? I felt right at home!
Thank you for following.
