Earle was kind of a blow hard; very little rain after last evening, so we were able to get out the bikes again today. Had a great day beachcombing and picnicing at Deadman's Cove. So many beautiful multi-coloured stones on the beach. We also hiked to the top of Gun Hill, which I discovered was blanketed with blueberries. New slogan for Palmer:
Harbour Breton- Blueberry Capital of the World!
Made my own version of put in this evening- Bacon stir fried with onions and red peper, add cooked rice and stir in 2 beaten eggs. Season with salt and red pepper.
The next day continued to be windy, so we bicycled to Dead Man's Cove and then hiked to the "look off" at the top of Gun Hill.
