    Take warm clothing. It was a little chilly esp at night.

    Into that good night
    Oh man, does THIS sound familiar. We did the exact same thing last week, except we were one road further from the water than you. After about 10 miles of steadily degrading gravel road, we dead-ended before the park at a bridge that was out, and the construction workers there told us that we wouldn't be able to ride through the park anyway.

    And then that night we stayed at the exact same campground as you had.
    Small world. You didn't happen to have the Donair Poutine for dinner at Pats in Pugwash?

    Nice trip Greg. Hoping someday I can get back there for NS. Good thing you got those tents up before it got "too dark".

    We never made reservations. I generally don't like making reservations on a bike trip - too many things can happen. That would have also inferred some form of preparation and planning which simply... didn't exist...

    The only night we were a bit worried was the final night but we were away from touristy places then. As it turned out, there were tons of campsites in the area. Greg's trusty GPS helped us out in this regard.

    That was a great campground - second only to Meat Cove on the trip. We had dinner in some little cafe that was just about to close and the food reflected this :D

    I had the pleasure of some Poutine later on in the trip.

    Hey Charlie :wave

    Ask Greg about WHY we didn't have any beer (we did have a small bottle of wine which went down very well...)
