Great job, I'm really enjoying your report. Is your wife going with you to Labrador?

And about those 50kph winds in New Brunswick, I think that in Newfoundland that's called a "light, summer breeze"!

A bit of science...The noble potato is one of the single most nutritional vegetable on the planet! It can supply all of the essential protein and amino acids required to meet the needs of growing children, The potato has no fat, cholesterol, it is high in fiber, vitamin C B6, potassium and is abudantly rich with antioxidants and rare phytochemical that fight free radicals and provides the highest protein level of any other root vegetable. PEI farmers have been producing potatoes from their rich red earth since 1790. So I enjoyed the authentic taste for new potatoes today, They're world famous and are shipped all over the world. All due to the rich red soil. It is red as it turns to iron oxide which "rusts" on exposure to air.





Red soil: Lifeblood of the PEI Potato



Also to be ridden on to explore the backroads of PEI





Lunch at Malpeque Harbor..we were the first customer that day of the season





Lucious Malpeque Oyster first class..right out of the ocean into the mouth.....Make Love Not War!!





Our Chucker...........

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your journey. It is/has been most enlightening so far. The photos, the thoughts, the reflections of your travels are a true gift to those of us not with you.

Thank your wife for allowing you to share this with all of us. Enjoy and ride safe. Come visit us in the Georgia mountains some time.

Hello

Beautiful pictures! Wish I could be there to take in the sites with you and mom! Is it safe to assume that mom was responsible for the pictures of the flowers? Hee! Hee!

FYI - We are all back safe and sound from Ohio...

Good Morning America..the World!

Here are some pictures of close captioned television news that I can monitor while on the road. Notice the bilingual narration here....cool.





Forgot to include this one yesterday. Note two cows have Canadas Maple Leaf bedecked on their stomachs....Neat Farmer....Cool Canada......
Moooooooooooooooo.......



My Frau and a petrified Moose......



ok...to answer few question some of you asked:

SCOOP: Yes, I use ASL in my everyday conversation except with those who do not know ASL.

OLD LION: You are correct--ASL is not universal, just as spoken language it is different all over the world. As with foreign language--you don't use it, you lose it.

MISHA: No, my frau is not going with me to Labrador. She's not too crazy about dirt, gravel, the cold and rain...besides, she has prior work commitments.

CODARIDER: Glad ur home safe & sound. You know too well that Mom has influenced me but also, the flowers are truly beautiful and the smell ever so powerful. They're all for Mom.

Until later...
Your Man On The Road

Halifax and beyond.....

Another attempt at tasting the best chowder in Halifax, NS....

Sumptuous Fish Chowder and Lobster Bisque....






Inland Lake, NS


Frau-on-the-Rocks....



No stop in Halifax is complete without stopping ant the burial grounds of the Titanic victims. I have always been fascinated by the saga of the Titanic, why she sank....poor metallurgy...poor communications during these days, regardless it was an epic, sad incident that forever lies in ones mind.

The story goes:

Shortly after the Titanic sank the White Star Line chartered four Canadian vessels; two Halifax-based cableships, the MacKay-Bennett and the Minia, a Canadian government vessel Montmagny and a St. John's-based Bowring vessel, Algerine. There were 328 bodies recovered, with 209 being returned to Halifax; the badly damaged, or deteriorated bodies were buried at sea. Of the 119 buried at sea, about 60 were unidentified at the time and 49 remain unidentified.
Once victims were returned to Halifax, a temporary morgue was set up in the Mayflower Curling Rink near the northwest corner of Agricola and McCully Streets. From there, identified bodies were shipped out to families' or interred in Halifax according to families' wishes. The Halifax Deputy Registrar of Deaths, John Henry Barnstead, supervised the handling of victims, with all personal effects kept in small canvas bags, numbered to match the body number assigned at sea. Careful records of the artifacts were kept and can be inspected today at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia. J. H. Barnstead's son, Arthur S., was to be appointed head of the Mortuary Committee five-and-a-half years later after the devastating Explosion in Halifax Harbour when Halifax and Dartmouth had 10 times as many victims to deal with.
Ultimately 150 Titanic victims were buried in ceremonies from May 3, to June 12, 1912. Nineteen are in the Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery, ten are in the Baron de Hirsch Jewish Cemetery, and 121 are in the Fairview Lawn Cemetery. Of these, 44 remain unidentified.















The last Song that the orchestra played and sang before the Titanic foundered:


Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.


Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I’d be nearer, my God to Thee.

There let the way appear, steps unto Heav’n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.


Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.












The private Jewish Cemetery was not accessible and picture taking of the black granite headstones was medicore at best...






Leaving Halifax for the Atlantic Coast....
























New Hairdooooooooooooooo........


1 km down from Peggy's Cove is a memorial of significance...


Cast among a unique rock landscape is the memorial for the victims of Swissair Flight 111, which crashed right off the coast of Nova Scotia on September 2nd 1998. The disaster put Nova Scotia in the focal point of the world's media as the desperate search for survivors commenced. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Nova Scotians indelibly reasserted their reputation as a warm and friendly people, with volunteers working tirelessly to help find survivors and to provide support to relatives of passengers.....








Ave Maria Gratia plena
Maria Gratia plena
Maria Gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum

Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tui Jesus

Ave Maria
Ave Maria Mater dei
Ora pro nobis pecatoribus
Ora, ora pro nobis
Ora ora pro nobis pecatoribus

Nunc et in hora mortis
In hora mortis, mortis nostrae
In hora mortis nostrae
Ave Maria!

One last shot at New Brunswick.....

Brunhilde gave some funny displays on the onboard computer telling me that I have two batteries. One of the battery is overlapping the oil indicator display...ugh...gotta see the last BMW guys in Dieppe, NB for a final complete diagnosis.



MegaPlex....BMW, Honda, Kawa, Suzes, ATV's...used HD, etc...







Prognosis: Nothing wrong; erased all previous saved "faults", maybe the after market battery is not combatible with BMW....??


High Tea at Noon for the Birds.......



Flowers of Brunswick...........








The Fungus of New Brunswich/ Bay of Fundy.....














Here's an example of the enormosity of the tide on the bay of Fundy....



Then came back with a vegenance of 56'...............






The Covered Bridges of New Brunswick.....

On the road to CAPE BRETON...

DAY 1...

Glorious weather on the Cape. The Cape and Cabot trail are a bikers dream, one can coast over mountains, then back to the sea.







Stopped at Tim Hortons(Dunkin'Donut) for a cup of so-so coffee and doghnuts. I did draw a curiosity among locals but no conversations.



Noted a beautifully restored US truck with wodden rails...



Hey Deafies...remember him....AGB!!







Taking a break along a beautiful small river and stream......









On the way to Cheticamp for the day and night. This village is primarily Acadian....





View from my door....
