We had a leisurely wake up this morning. A nice long walk on the beach. And out we go.
We stopped at a few of the hiking spots off the trail. One hike was a bit longer than I planned when I missed a turn in the trail. Ooooops. At least I didn’t have to worry about spooking bears with Jack huffing and puffing along. There were quite a few signs warning about bear activity. The funny thing was that everyone I spoke to were more concerned about the moose. In fact, they made a point of telling me to be off the roads after dark because of the moose.
Once I had loaded the dogs back into the car, we went for lunch. And to make sure that Jack was properly re-fueled, we had lobster for lunch. Yes I wrote that. We had lobster.
After lunch we stopped and had coffee at the Frog Pond Cafe. Well I had coffee and the dogs socialized with everyone around. And there may have been a second coffee at the Dancing Goat Cafe.
Now as we were driving I saw signs that piqued my interest. Signs for Glenora Distillery. Well now how do I not stop? Let’s just say the 14 year old scotch is quite lovely and a bottle somehow made it into my car.
The rest of the day was punctuated by stops to hike whenever there was a break in the weather. Much like the Rocky Mountains, if I had stopped at every beach and scenic overlook, well, it would have taken us a very long time to get anywhere. The rugged beauty is so different from the Rockies and yet they are both amazing places to see.
Unfortunately as we continued on the weather reports were not getting any more encouraging so we checked into the Margaree River View Inn.
So now the next issue is food. Nothing close enough to deliver. Do we leave to get something? Nooooooooo I have a trunk full of supplies. So coffee maker oatmeal it is. Macgyver ain’t got nothin’ on me.
