Day 59, August 17, Charlottetown PEI to New Glasgow NS

I woke up at around 8:30am to the smell of coffee. Nothing has smelt as good. I checked the weather report on the Internet before heading down stairs. Neil and Khym were busy making breakfast and watching the Olympics.

As we finished breakfast, we headed down to the beach by the house to take a couple photos. After, we said our goodbyes and drove to where we left off two days ago. Thanks again to Neil and Khym for putting up with us for the night. It was greatly appreciated!

It took us awhile to get out of the city. The hills definitely intensified as we made it to the ferry. The sky was almost clear blue during the ride. It was the first time I’ve had to put sunscreen on in some time. The ferry we wanted to catch was at 2:45pm, but we didn’t end up making it, and had to take the 4:30pm ferry. The scenery on the ferry ride was very enjoyable, and a nice break in the middle of the ride. It took about an hour and half to get to Nova Scotia.

We only rode another 40k into Nova Scotia before we decided to stop outside of New Glasgow. We found a campsite just outside the city. Tomorrow is a good ride at 155k
