Students of Canadian politics will instantly connect the image to the father of the nation, who could look dapper or dishevelled, depending on his level of sobriety.

Black Garlic and Independent Ladies

When you're offered garlic that's blacker than coal, you eat it. Why? Because if you don't, you'll never know the sweet balsamic-y glory of black garlic. At least, Al Pickett's black garlic on PEI. A former beekeeper, Al now operates Eureka Garlic, and plants over 70 varieties of organic garlic on just ¾ of an acre of land in Kensington.

Barnyard Organics

Our first stop off the bridge was Barnyard Organics, a 550 acre organic farm in Freetown, run by Mark and Sally Bernard.

Charlottetown in Winter

(Blogged about here: I had a lot of fun with "Charlottetown at Night," which I shot one night last fall, and knew I wanted to do it again. So, I got my hands on a 7D and hit the streets again. I went out on Islander Day, a provincial holiday, so the streets are relatively bare.

The Day We Called A Tow Truck

A road trip isn't a road trip unless you're forced to call a tow truck at least once. After seven provinces and two territories of smooth car sailing, we finally had to call CAA and admit we were stuck. Stuck in PEI's beautiful, rich, red mud. Stuck real good.
