It is a busy time around Prince Edward Island. The spring lobster fishery is underway and the waters of the north shore are dotted with fishing boats as they check their traps and ports are busy with lobster tails/tales. The fields are busy too. For several weeks, we’ve watched as farmers prepared the fields and now planting is underway. The season of PEI traffic jams in upon us.
Last Friday we headed to the north shore with our family to visit a friend whose cottage is along the coast. It was a beautiful day and many of the fields we passed along the way showed recent activity. The roads were busy too. Huge pieces of farm equipment were on their way to another location for Saturday. On Route 106, it converged, pieces headed in both directions. The result was an island traffic jam.
We had a huge piece of farm equipment a few vehicles ahead of us on the road. The on-coming wide loads made for an interesting few minutes.
One of the vehicles had a Hulk doll attached to its front. It was an uncommon sight for sure!
My husband and I were fascinated with the road traffic.
Our only experience with any amount of traffic on this island is when we visit the capital, Charlottetown, or there is an accident on the road. Having to stop briefly for farm equipment is a seasonal occurrence, spring planting or fall harvesting. It isn’t a problem.
Such is life on this gentle island.
