Visibility was up to 1.5 miles when we left the Seawind Landing, but the fog enveloped us for most of our journey along the Marine Drive. Covered some miles just talking and listening to music. Hardly any traffic to speak of.
Snapped a few photos as the mist began to lift, yet it was an effort to get inspired. We noticed a big increase in the black fly poulation on one of these photo stops. Dave decided to download the GPS track data and was nearly carried away by swarms of these hungry insects. Everyone we passed after this point were wearing their ''bug suits'' or at the very least a netted hat. We were glad we were not camping.
Passed through Sherbrook and converted some cash. This tiny town is stretched to its limit when locals and tourists converge on its main thoroughfare. No need for us to relive its historic village museum, we were quickly on our way, hoping the sky was truely clearing.
Stopped in Tangier for that undeniably mouth-watering smoked salmon. J. Willy Krauch & Son's was our planned stop for the day. A half pound between the two of us for tea.
Bought gas amidst a carnival caravan which was also refueling. We found ourselves driving behind a ''kiddy-ride'' with a fried dough truck following. Of course we came to a section of road under construction, ending right at our destination for the night. The crew had not yet sloped the new pavement onto the inn's driveway, we just cleared it.
The growls of highway equipment lasted through the afternoon and early dinner hour.
Then came peace and strong rays of sunshine. Stuffed ourselves with excellent lobster, no room for dessert.
