Reading your ride report brings back good memories! My wife and I did Nova Scotia, PEI, and New Brunswick, from Virginia, 2 up, the same summer you were there. We left at the end of July and got back Mid-August. I remember they were having record heat up there that year and everyone was complaining about the heat. We laughed, because in Virginia, that's not real heat! In 2019 I did the Trans-Labrador Highway and Newfoundland solo.... You need to try that when they open things up. It was even better than Nova Scotia!
