Woollen Mill

Finished product

Malpeque Bay

First time for bug tent


June 21st Summer Solstice

We were fortunate to have the sun all day for the longest day of the year. We meandered along back roads starting with a stop at a local bakery where we picked up some butter tarts and coffee. I chose to eat mine right away but Bill decided to save his for later and left it on the dash of the van covered in maps while we visited a local Woollen Mill that has been operating on PEI since 1873? We spent a good hour there watching the operation of the mill from natural wool fiber through to finished coloured balls of yarn. They ship traditional woolen blankets all over the world from this mill. When we returned to the van we found a ripped up plastic wrapper, a guilty looking dog and no butter tart! I was worried that all that sugar might make him sick but other than being very lethargic he did not see any the worse for his sugar consumption. Bill was some annoyed though. We lunched at the Oyster Barn at Malpeque Bay on the sweetest oysters I have ever had. Our destination that evening was Cabot Beach Provincial Park just up the road from the restaurant so we called it a day and stopped there for the night. We found yet another gem of a park with a large beach. The mosquitoes however are now out in force and this is the first time we set up the screened tent over the picnic table so we could sit outside and eat without being eaten ourselves! Inside we swatted and zapped them until we could finally fall asleep.
