I Think We’re Getting Tired

19 06 2016

I’ve just finished booking a b&b for tomorrow night.

There are some mixed feelings in doing this.  We are camping for the second night in a row, but the reality is,  we do better in a bed,  with a roof over our heads.  So tomorrow we’re not camping.  It makes the trip more expensive but in some ways I wish we could ship our tent home. Until we get to a place where there is no alternative but to camp.

Last night had no other alternatives. The space between Fredericton and Moncton is a bit of a waste land.  The distance between the 2 is too far for one day,  but there is no good place to stop and services are few.  In fact,  last night was the only night of the trip where we could not find a place to eat within a reasonable distance. We had planned ahead,  but neither of us was particularly thrilled with our supper of cheese,  crackers and pepperoni,  nor with our breakfast of orange juice and granola bars.  Oh well,  it’s all part of the experience.

In fairness, it was quite a comfortable campground with very friendly people.  I don’t think I’ve seen so many people excited about “washer toss “, their tournament went on for hours!

The truly awesome thing about tomorrow’s b&b? It’s in PEI!!

In tomorrow’s ride we will leave New Brunswick,  cycle a small corner of Nova Scotia and be shuttled across the bridge to the island.
