Day 11 – The Island Walk

September 13, 2021

The best day! 30.5 kilometres on this gorgeous Monday. Lots of pics and short on words this post.

Hurray for red clay backroads flanked by forests, framed by leaves.

This, briefly explained, is why today was the best: 1- Started with a walk on the trail through the city of Charlottetown. City equals stores , so I got a chance to resupply much needed foot pain management products.

2- Though there were the inevitable road walks, almost all either had sidewalks or interesting features. And, thank you to the woman (fellow hiker, I am assuming) who beeped and waved, smiling at me. So nice!

3- Challenging roundabouts to navigate, which was like a game, especially for someone like me that has the sense of direction of a cheese sandwich.

4- Bridges, hilly terrain, side roads with no loose dogs, water views, rolling farmland, roadside apple trees, and walking on secluded, canopied red dirt roads.

Right on the Confederation Trail in Charlottetown. Is 8:30am too early for cider?

Better morning choice than cider

Lots of trailside wildflowers for the bees

More bridge views

Perfect little lunch spot in Clyde River

Saw the sign, and kept on walking

Plus, a new friend, who happens to be a chef, made me a whole bunch of amazing vegan food for dinner and even to take with me!

Makena – chef extraordinaire – and Bruce, who generously shared his home with me.

Lastly, today’s total raised for Lennon Recovery House is $4,255! The goal is $7000 so we are well on the way. Thank you again to all who have donated! Such important work is being done at Lennon House. Please share this to help get to our goal. If you haven’t yet donated, but would like to, or just want to learn more about the fundraiser, please check out the link.  Thanks for following along. More adventures to come! Christine
