Fortunately we have the use of a truck while we are on PEI. This opens up the opportunity to turn down the side dirt roads to explore. We could still do that with a car, but as the promise of moisture increases, having a truck with 4×4 is infinitely more comforting.
Part of the interesting history of PEI is how it came to become part of Canada. A large part of this is due to the Prince Edward Island Railway, that is now the Confederation Trail. Built in the 1870’s the railway linked the island from tip to tip. However it also nearly bankrupted the government. The bail out by the Government of Canada was one of the reasons PEI joined Confederation in 1873.
We had heard that there was a brewery hidden away at the end of a dirt road on one part of the island. So to continue our quest to visit all the breweries in the province and to explore back roads, this was a must do on our list.
Stay tuned. We have a road trip planned to the corner of the island we haven’t checked out yet. It should be fun.
Nice blog the first picture looks identical to the one we have on our wall. Is it where the farm meets the sea?
It was taken about 50 metres from the entry point of the Silfra fissure.
