Canada, Prince Edward Island – oysters and almost last day of the cruise

For my second ever visit to PEI (home to Anne of Green Gables) I decided to bypass Charlottetown and do something different so I went to a private home in front of the Pinette River river run by a lovely couple who harvest wild oysters to supply three local restaurants.

A quick departure from Charlottetown.

Then onward to learn how oysters are farmed and shucked and then we ate loads of them – plus those fantastic steamed clams. Apparently 16 of us got through 300 oysters!!

Then they opened the Galley on the ship for their food extravaganza – lobster, cake, chocolate dragons and sea horse bread.

As we sailed away Charlottetown treated us to a beautiful sunset too.
