Eating is an essential part of any vacation experience, and beach house escapes are no different. What seems like just an act of sustenance at home – a routine fork-to-mouth moment – suddenly becomes a gustatory event, which is why travel guides to popular locales are fattened with restaurant reviews. Even the food you prepare yourself somehow tastes better, and that's good news for me given that Pictou Island doesn't have a single eatery.
