Malpeque Oysters from PEI, we went to get some fresh ones...

Back in Feb 2015, we found ourselves at Perla's, enjoying oysters on the patio. It was a beautiful winter day in Austin. The oysters were the best we'd ever had, we mused that we would some day visit Malpeque and consume them as close to the source as possible, the ultimate in freshness. We kicked the idea around a few years, and eventually cobbled together a route to make it a reality.

It looks a bit like this....

That was one HUGE road trip. Not sure we will ever bite that much off again. We started in Austin with stops in Florida, North Carolina, Vermont, Quebec, Nova Scotia and PEI, with a stop in Saint John before heading home (via Nebraska). That was a lot of road travelled.
