With an unexpected break in work, my wife and I decided we would take advantage of the situation and take a trip back to her home province of Newfoundland. We were not selling everything and going to live on our bikes, so we had to limit it to three weeks. We bought an enclosed trailer earlier this year for a trip exactly like this. We have already ridden motorcycles to the West Coast, and had decided that the long days riding over the prairies are done, hence the trailer. We figured 3 days of driving East with the Jeep and trailer would bring us to the good stuff, so early Saturday morning we headed south for the USA. We decided that going south around the Lake Superior would be the way for us, as we had just ridden around the North Shore to Wawa On earlier in May. Off we went with lots of extras as we would have access to the trailer up to New Brunswick. Lots of driving, but stopped to do some fishing in Ashland Wisconsin. Camped for 3 nights as the weather was ideal and we wanted to make use of our outdoor gear. We have an awesome tent from Canadian Tire, the Instant Tent by Coleman. They have that commercial out now where they have the tent set up in a car wash to show the dryness of the tent. The tent goes from bag to set up in less than 2 minutes! Best tent we have ever owned! We had heard that Montreal was a challenge to drive through. With our GPS and maps, we navigated without too much trouble through all the different roads and ramps. The number of highways and roads are staggering! Here we are going through the tunnel under the St. Lawrence river (at least thats what we think it was). Pretty crazy when you think about it! We were stopping at my wife's co-workers house and spending the night in Bathhurst new Brunswick, they were very gracious and had us over for a lobster dinner, and kept us for the night. Here we have the bikes loaded up and ready to roll after 3 days in the Jeep. First destination ended up being PEI since we were so close to Confederation Bridge. It is quite an accomplishment to build a 12 kilometer long bridge over the ocean, and I am sure the residents of PEI are thrilled that they can "get off" the island. I really enjoyed PEI, and can see the attraction of the place, beyond the Ann of Green Gables tourist traps. After crossing the bridge, I looked back over my accomplishments and saved the ride on my Go Pro, kind of makes me look like Buzz LightYear ready for a blast off to outer space! Hopewell Rocks was really interesting and we enjoyed watching the tides come in and take over the beaches. Here I am before the full extent of the 30 foot tides chased me up the stairs. We got there later in the day and it was a fun place to spend a couple of hours. We had already set up a camp 15 minutes down the road, so stayed late, and headed back to the campground to get some dinner. At least when you go late for dinner, you don't have to fight the crowds. We were very well fed and had excellent service with a very attentive waitress! After another night of camping we were ready for a hotel. Off to Bridgewater NS for a night at the Best Western! Riding to Lunenberg and Mahone Bay was a treat. An afternoon at Mahone Bay was spent looking to keep cool from the 34 degree celcius heat. Loved all the old houses and the shops. Next stop was the famous Peggy's Cove and watched the waves crashing in for over an hour. So relaxing.... Trust me it was not easy getting a picture of the Lighthouse without a dozen people in front of big structure. My wife gets me to do some goofy things for the sake of an interesting picture. She will get me to jump up and take my picture while in mid air. We have done this numerous times, and she decided that Peggy's Cove was a good place to try this little exercise again. Turned out pretty dang good don't you think?
