Day 7, Evangeline Trail to Glooscap Trail

Breakfast!



Merc’s office



WE head out of Digby fairly early (well I head out early and wait for Mercury at the Shell station. Time passes and he finally shows up with some story about blocked toilets & having to wait. I think he was just snapping artsy photos





pics on the fly



Ran into these guys at… you guessed it, a Tim’s







trikes w/ v-8 engines?



not my cup of tea… but anyway

we’d originally planned to hammer straight across after Windsor, but ADV’r JTT told us “don’t miss Advocate Harbor”. So, with some inside knowledge, we hugged the coast road. AMAZING!











looking back towards Advocate Harbor



Cape Chignecto





who can say no?



we stopped in Amherst to figure or next move.

Chow



gone!



hello New Brunswick



Radio Canada world service



setting up at the trailer park



our new friend from Halifax!
As soon as he pulled in I knew it was a triple.
He’s on ADV too, and he was on his way to Ontario, and then San Diego. Better have a good trip report!



oh yeah… talk about small world… I say “where abouts in Ontario?” “Sarnia” he says. Damn… I used to live in Point Edward! Small World!

The three of us polish off our Nova Scotia wine supply & hit the tents. It’s been a most excellent day, with some of the best roads of the trip!

364 more miles behind us.
