A Twillingate Trek on Batrix Island Trail with a Culinary Tale
Unscripted Twillingate is a four day celebration of digital arts which began four years ago. Each year, each day offers many events/workshops to enjoy. This year I purchased a ticket for Fire Food and Photography and Crystal Anstey from Experience Twillingate did not disappoint!
The group met at Twillingate museum and walked approximately 15 minutes in Back Harbour to Batrix Island. The information on this trail has the starting point from Main Street and lists its difficulty level as moderate. I believe that is referring to the last climb to the top which is a little steep.
Along the way we did a little foraging for berries and edible plants, with Crystal sharing information on identifying and usage. It was a gorgeous, windy day with awe-inspiring views.
…..and then we arrived. A dining table on Batrix Island beach…sure why not!!!!
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. Eleanor Roosevelt
While we were waiting for the food to be prepared, a few of us walked to the top of Batrix Island ….so glad I did.
There’s dining and then there’s dining. 🙂
Food by Crystal………….
……..decor by Mother Earth.
A little discussion on plating and each of us did our own arrangement…..think mine looks pretty good…and the food was delicious.
It was all cooked over an open fire on a beach with sun and sea, with new friends and laughter. Thank you Crystal Anstey!
