Our day off in P.E.I. was unbelievable.  Waking up in the morning, Dan Steele(The President of the P.E.I. Parkinson's Society) was already cooking up some amazing waffles, topped off with fruit and whipping cream.  Has to be one of the best breakfasts we have had all trip.  A cool time for us as we got to chat with Dan about his experiences with Parkinson’s and get to spend some good time with his family.  Dan was diagnosed with Parkinson’s two years ago and also has biked across Canada.  So overall, just chatting with him was great for both connections to our story. Michael, his five-year-old son is one of the nicest and energetic kids you will ever meet.  He had all of us pitch to him as hit home run after home run.  Constantly mocking me in particular for being a terrible hide and go seek player.  Loretta was a blast to chat with and hang with while we could in the morning!  Just adding to the list of mothers looking after us guys on the trip.  We eventually cruised off on a bike ride with Dan and Michael towards the Fair Isle Motel where we were setting up camp for the night.  Janet(The owner of the Motel) helped us out big time and for anyone ever looking for a place to stay only a five minute drive from downtown Charlelottetown you must go here.  Beautiful gardens surrounding the rooms and very very comfy rooms.  Thank you again Janet!

As we are on bikes, every time that we have had a day off they have been pretty limited in how far we explore an area.  Today our experience was completely different.  Our guy Paul Clark took us on a tour of a lifetime.  Paul might be the nicest guy you have ever met and the best storyteller of all time.  He completely embodies what Prince Edward Island is all about.  Welcoming, compassionate, friendly and hilarious.  We drove all over the Island, through the rolling hills in the interior, Malpeque Bay, Cavendish Beach, North Rustico, Brackely Beach and for unreal Lobster Supper at the Fisherman’s Wharf(North Rustico).  Russ absolutely lost his mind to his.  We had a 60 ft. salad bar, unlimited desserts and of course a delicious lobster.  It was definitely pretty difficult for us boys to keep any food off of our faces.  If you ever head to PEI head there!  

The day was unbelievable.  We toured pretty much all over the North Shore of the Island. The best part was having Paul to tour us around.  The guy can tell a story like nobody else.  He had us laughing the entire trip and had interesting facts for every nook and cranny we came to.  Overall, an unbelievable day and showed us the reason why Prince Edward Island is a top destination in Canada.  Beautiful place with super nice people.  Smallest province with the biggest heart!

Tomorrow we are off to the ferry to Nova Scotia and slowly crawling for Halifax.  Around 220 Km until the Atlantic Ocean!

  Love you bye.  Ryan

Hey guys,

I want to say again how great it was to meet you all and have you stay with us for a bit. You've made an impression on all of us in the Steele household and I do hope our paths will cross again. Michael loves your pictures and already misses you.

Please continue to stay engaged with the Parkinsons community. We all need your help. I'm confident that a cure will be found and it will happen that much sooner with the efforts of people like yourselves who give so much. I'm sure your family is very proud of all that you are doing. Your Grandfather must have been a remarkable man to have influenced you four in such a profound way. Best of luck with the rest of your trip.
