That is me being outstanding in a field of PEI potatoes on Canada Day 2015. We landed in PEI at sundown on June 30 so here we are trying to find a place to meet up with some old friends from Yellowknife, Janet and Kieth Sanderes. This was not the lace to do it. We got back in the dinghy and went another 500m. down the shoreline and found a spot that had a road down to the shore. We went exploring and discovered and old church that was a very good landmark where we arranged t meet the next day. There was also a museum close by and we learned the history d Malpeque Bay which is famous for it's oysters.
We had a great visit with our buddies the next day, saw there big 7 bedroom house, had a lovely lunch at a local pub. We manage to fit in some laundry and some grocery shopping. On our way back to the boat the dinghy motor, which has refused to get better despite Mark working very hard on her, decided to quit. It was very windy and we were about a mile and a half from the boat and there was no way we would be able to row there. Luckily with great fore site Barry had put a spare spark plug in his backpack so while I threw out the dinghy anchor to save the hard earned distance we had already made Barry changed the spark plug. Bless her the motor started first pull and we putted slowly to th boat, whew!! We will remember the hand held radio the next time we have to go any distance. We have both agreed that our car is going to turn into a new motor. We plan to sell said car in the middle of July, I think a reliable dinghy motor is essential !
