Inuksuit



August 28, 2014. People have alwways built inuksuit at North Cape but this year they proliferated in the hundreds for some reason ('inuksuit' is the plural of 'inukshuk') Beyond you can see the famous kilometer long cap of North Cape, covered with seagulls, cormorants, and seals.

Oyster Creek Bridge



August 27, 2014. View from the bridge as I cycled 120km to Richmond and back. This would be at the 99km mark of my ride. It's one of my favorite sights on the island and I always look forward to it.

Port Elgin



August 26, 2014. Bridge in Port Elgin, a pretty little town we visited detouring around construction on our way into town to feed the cats. OK, it's not so pretty. But it could be!

Harvest



August 25, 2014. An Island farmer pilots his John Deere Harvester in a grain field just off Mill Road, one of the sights I was treated to on a quick 60km ride to O'Leary and back. Another sight was Hackeney Road, a PEI Heritage Road (ie, sandy and difficult to cycle), which took me to Mill Road. View Hackeney Road - http://ift.tt/1tFOF6g

Miscouche



August 24, 2014. The Church of Jean the Baptist at Miscouche, PEI. This is the church I tried to photograph the other day. Now, enjoying a day of rest after yesterday's ride, I was able to capture the image.

Northport



August 22, 2014. A quick 30 km tune-up (@23kph) before tomorrow's big ride. This is Northport, just south of Alberton, a working port (as you can see) but also with a museum and pleasure boat moorings.
