Tuesday August 27, 2013. Day Off

To our surprise, we discovered that our B&B offers a free laundry service! With that chore gratefully delegated, our first stop this morning was MacQueen’s Bicycle shop. The tires on both bikes are showing the wear of nearly 7000 km, but the rear tire on Lois’ bike looks particularly ripped up. We got advice and decided to return tomorrow morning to replace at least that tire. We then headed back to Terre Rouge (we had a great dinner there last night) for espresso/latte and to finish yesterday’s blog. The rest of the day was spent visiting the Confederation Centre Art Gallery – there was a moving exhibit of Mi’kmaq history and culture presented by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI, an interesting exhibition of paintings by Montreal artist Philip Delisle, and a retrospective of the work of Hilda Woolnough – walking along the seaside boardwalk, lingering over lunch and slowly making our way back to the B&B for a rest and a jacuzzi, before venturing out again for a seafood dinner at Claddagh Oyster House, followed by desert and coffee upstairs at the Olde Dublin Pub, while listening to live music (Richard Wood and Gordon Belsher). It was a good day!
