Practicing on the go

This is my favorite spot to practice. I generally just stop somewhere quiet with a nice view and start strumming the guitar for half an hour to an hour.

Where do you like to practice?

Thx Jean-Philip Rousseau for taking this picture.

Random Roadtrip with Jess

Back on PEI Jess got in touch with me via Instagram (@jessacam) and after my fishing trip she and her mom invited me over to their house for a chat, some oysters, a beer and Shlime shots (more about that later).

She just came back from traveling around Europe and wanted to exchange stories and experiences :-)

In the morning we decided to go on a little roadtrip and explore her home province together.

Jess was the navigator and the first stop she chose was #Rustico. A beautiful beach and harbor town and hot spot for islanders in the summer time.

From there we went to 'Anne of Green Gables' house. The story of Anne is quite famous and many fans visit this house every year. For some reason it's apparently extremely popular in Japan.

Next stop was #Malpeque. This little town is world famous for its oyster fishing. So we went oyster hunting and brought them back to Jess' home.

We got into a little accidental off road adventure while making our way back though. We took a wrong turn and ended up on hilly dirt roads winding through the forest. Good fun!

Eventually we found our way back to the main road and as a last stop Jess showed me her uncles place where she spent a lot of time as a kid. A beautiful spot as you can see in the first picture. :-)

Thanks Jess for reaching out and showing me around! It's been a pleasure and I wish you good luck on all your future travel adventures.

You rock!

After my fishing adventure with Mark I went over to Jessica's home in #Stratford. She got in touch via Instagram (@jessacam).

Took this shot on our little roadtrip around Prince Edward Island the day after.

Catch me if you can

The Blue Fin Tuna starring as Leo and the fishermen and I as the FBI chasing him for 13 HOURS on the open water.

Last Monday I jumped onboard of the 'Top Notch' boat with Marc Jenkins at 5 am in the morning and we came back to shore at 6 pm in the eve after a day of chasing Leo the tuna fish. A huge and very cunning fish.

First step, fishing for mackerel, the bait. That was super easy. They hooked up almost immediately.

With our bait we went further out to catch the big one. He grows up to 3 meters!

The fishing rods were put in position with the fresh bait, the engine turned off and we then drifted through his favorite hang out spots.

Doing so we were watching the radar to look for the big blib. When that happens they started chumming. That means throwing more bait over board luring in Leo.

We had a few big blibs and have been chumming and trying everything to catch him but unfortunately he never took the bait...

We had 4 drifts over a quite choppy sea and I have to admit that at some point I got seasick. No hanging over the side of the boat but very very close :-)

I have to say that I've never been so happy to get back on land after a day in the open sea.

It was nevertheless a great experience. It gave me some insight in fishing at sea and my respect for fishermen grew with the minute. The hard labor, the weather, the battle with the sea... respect!

So thank you Mark for letting me go with you chasing Leo. He got away this time but I'm sure you'll catch him soon!

Mark gave me some mackerel as a present for Jessica and her mum who would be my hosts for the eve.

Jess got in touch with me via Instagram (@thesocialtraveler).

That story is up next ;-)

Gone fishing

Beginning of the week I was invited by Mark Jenkins on his boat Top Notch to go fishing for blue fin tuna. It's a huge fish that is in popular demand but they can only fish one per boat per year.

People from around the world come to pei to go on 'catch and release' charters like I was on here.

Marc was introduced to me by Kelli whom I met via Marc MacDonald, 'the coffee connection'.

Shot this when we were leaving the harbor early in the morning.

Read the choppy story in the next post ;-)

Stanhope's lighthouse keeps you from getting stranded. Pun intended :-)

Sun dunes

The beaches of Prince Edward Island are of the prettiest I've seen. No wonder it's the #1 Beach destination in Canada.

Red Rock Island

Prince Edward Island's coastline is known for its distinct red colored rock shores and beaches.

Due to erosion the coastline is constantly reshaping.

Shot this from a boat off the shore of #Cavendish. More pics follow ;-)
