DAY 3 - Fundy Bay

took the ferry from Deer Island to St. John and made our way up the coast



alright... where's the damn moose????





they got serious low tides up there





ended up in a campground just below Hopewell Rocks, and took a stroll out to the marsh









off course, no moose there - but does that count?









and later that night with high tide

even "greek gods" get cranky when the streets are to straight or we have to cross to many towns and farmland.... solution? gravel!

DAY 4 - Nova Scotia

drive-by pic:



as I said... we needed "change". The coastal road is not like Oregon, where you spend the whole time on the road, it's more like a "glimps of coast" once in a while. So, to avoid boredom we needed to mix it up and took a short cut:

oh boy, these roads are "fast"!





exploring some side roads on the coast...









and more gravel heading north from Truo all the way to the Northumberland Straight - no traffic at all





the only moose of the day was my sticker....



done for the day: Provincial Park near Pictou

Excellent report, I'm in! Ever since I moved to Virginia from Wyoming in August 2007 I've wanted to do a ride to that country but work, life, the economy, and the weather have conspired against me so far. Looks like you guys had fantastic weather so far! Heat is OK, relentless rains kinda suxxx.

By the way, all the mooseses are in Wyoming. We went to visit family in mid-July and got to see a big boy up in the Snowy Range Mountains near Laramie. Cool critters so long as you don't surprise them or hit them with your car or motorcycle. I have also discovered they don't like bicyclists very much for some reason. If you need a photo of one for your report let me know and I can post one for you .

Doug

Great report so far! If you write that you went to Digby and caught the Ferry later on, I'm going to be disappointed you didn't stop...

We thought about taking the ferry back... but it's a bit spendy for two bikes - and there was this little thing called major rainstorm heading towards us....
