Friday 24 February - [catching up]
I had long wanted to attend the annual Killarney Country Show. It always coincided with our visits to PEI. This year it was held in February, so friends Jocelyn and Marlene joined me for the approx 200 km road trip out.
An overcast and unusually, cool, February day made the drive very scenic with the clouds drifting over the ranges and down into the valleys.
I know the road like the back of my hand and didn't bother to check google maps until we came to a sign that said ROAD CLOSED! I was very disappointed as this was my favourite section of our journey.
The road we were on, continued with bitumen, and as it was a long way back to find another road to take us to Killarney, the decision was made to continue, hoping the road would circle around to our destination.
Alas, only a few k's on we were greeted by a gravel road. Another few k's and some workmen vaguely said, 'Yes, you will get there". It was a marvellous mystery drive, and eventually, we knew exactly where we were and were very happy that the road closed sign, sent us into new territory.
