Day 52, August 10, St. Denis QC to Cabano NB

We decided to take some time in the morning to update our blogs. We didn’t get out on the road until around 12:30pm. We were going to eat at the campsite, but they didn’t take interact. We decided to ride for a while until we found a place to eat.

About 10k into the ride we found a beautiful restaurant in an old house that overlooked the St. Lawrence River. I ordered the usual, but with some difficulty. The server didn’t speak much English, so we had a table next to us translate. Although, it still took awhile for the server to understand what I wanted. She probably thought what I wanted to order was being lost in translation. I guess ordering 7 eggs and nothings else isn’t as common as you’d think.

It’s always a good day to ride when you’re going cross into another province. It’s motivating to know you’re actually making progress. There were times I didn’t think we’d make it out of Northern Ontario.

Today was another good day to ride in terms of weather. We ended up finding a campsite just on the outskirts of Cabano. We’ve become quite proficient at putting our tents up in the dark.
