Day 1799, Halifax – Sheet Habour: The Hangover

Total: 42392 km

It was quite late before Anna and I made it back to her grandmothers house last night. This morning Anna had to ride back to Tatamagouche, and I was heading east towards Cape Breton and the ferry to Newfoundland. Thanks for some great days in Nova Scotia, Anna! I had been looking forward to stop by ever since I left Cali in February. After spending a few days I can only say that this is a very nice corner of Canada – and the world!

Due to the late night I was taking it easy throughout the day. Cycling with a slight hangover is not as bad as you might think. The cycling itself helps you to wake up, and then you are of course free to take a little siesta at a beautiful spot when needed. That was what I did for an hour today, and I loved it 🙂

I was hoping to find a beach side camp spot for the night, but as the time got closer to sunset the road took me more inland. It was easy enough to find a good camp spot in this remote part of Nova Scotia. The good views would have to wait for tomorrow, but I got my 8 hours of perfect sleep.

  1. Love the caboose and the old railway coach! Where, specifically is that? 🙂

  2. Hi Stephen. The place is in the small town of Musquodoboit Harbour, and is called the Musquodoboit Harbour Railway Museum. Great little spot!

  3. Ok. I will have to make a point to visit there. Hopefully it will still be there, by the time I get there!
