Left the 4-star and navigated downtown via the boardwalk, reminded me of Baltimore seaport.

What goes on onboard that....

Well I got a warm welcome - not - at the ferry terminal.  You know my first time right...asked the security guard "how much is it..." (He was on his phone texting).   He didn't even look up $2.50 "....and I don't make change...).  I fixed him I went and got change off bike and played it in front of him and said take what you need.

Other bike commuters helped me the rest of the way.  Be kind people!!!

So the alternate in this case was NS 207 E - beautiful low traffic and outstanding scenic views.  Oh, and a Country Store I'm the middle of no where.  Don told me about it.   YES!

Traditional Breakfast with coffee and HONEY!!!

NS 7E presented more traffic than the roads earlier; not terrible, but the kind that keep you from grabbing your water bottle to hydrate!

Here's a thought from the Road:. "....why don't you do more a day....," is a question I get a lot.   Ummm, my read on that is, everyday you head out you cannot predict the "gems" (right Dan) that me show up.  It could be a sign with a cute slogan or it might be a beach full of surfers that you never expected.   It might be just another interaction that asked you "where are you coming from....". All these happened today so why not enjoy them!   Slow down for the hills and slow for the GEMS.

The last 30 minutes on the road today were challenging with tight roads and traffic; was glad my overnight at the Jeddore Lodge was waiting for me.
