I haven’t vlogged in a while but here are some bits and pieces from my trip to PEI. I ended up taking more photos than video.
While in PEI, we did a ridiculous amount of eating and I thought some places deserved their own posts. One of these places was The Big Orange Lunchbox.
We happened to be in PEI during Porktoberfest and there was plenty of options for the pork lover here. I thought I’d go all out and get what was named as the 50 Shades of Pork (pictured at top of post). It was an island pork chorizo patty, topped with BBQ pulled pork, tomato bacon jam, carmelized onions, fried mozarella sticks and mustard aoli. This thing left me in a delcious coma but it was all worth it.
Nash and I kind of fought over who would order the 50 Shades of Pork but ultimately I ended up winning. Anyways he ended up getting something totally different and got the scallop burger. We weren’t sure if it was going to be scallops grinded in a patty or not but it turns out there were a couple of juicy fresh ones between the bun.
If we stayed longer in PEI, we probably would have visited this place like 10 more times as the menu had so many other goodies to eat!
The majority of my PEI trip involved wedding-related activities. The wedding took place at the PEI Brewing Company. We spent some time there making necessary preparations and I snapped a few photos during regular hours:
This fella sounded like a real life version of Catbug.
The family of the bride and groom rented out cottages for the week. The view from there was peaceful and beautiful.
We were frequently greeted by a friendly fox:
One of the nights we attended an all-you-can-eat dessert event in support of PEI’s Autism Society. We were spoiled with delicious treats:
We had our nails painted by her mother:
Nash and I are currently in Prince Edward Island for my best friend’s wedding next weekend. We had a little bit of time to explore over the past few days, so here’s what we did so far.
We tried Gahan Craft Beer. This Honey Wheat Ale had a nice sweetness to it. This could possibly be the most Canadian looking beer.
The next morning we had breakfast at Phinley’s, where poutine for breakfast is a thing!
On Saturday we went to see Rich Aucoin at the PEI Brewing Company. We happend to walk in when an art battle was just ending. Aucoin himself was painting something!
This cruise ship looked rather familiar.
How could we go to the east coast without visiting a Cows Icecream?
