Yesterday morning after we left the lighthouse we headed back into Digby and bought $100 worth of gas. That was about a third of a tank. $1.359 per litre, about $5.00 per gallon. Oh well, such is the life we lead. Then, we stopped in to get a 4 litre (slightly more than a gallon) jug of milk, but they wanted $7.69. This sure is an expensive part of the world. We still had some boxes of
milk, so we’ll use that until we can get milk here for under $7.00. Mexico
Then we headed out the Digby Neck. This narrow stretch of land goes for about 60 kms (36 miles) and ends with a short ferry ride to
Here come's our ferry boat!
Long Island, we drove about 4 kms (2.6 miles) to the parking area for the Balancing Rock Trail. (GPS 44.36788 -66.23577) The parking lot was actually roped off, but someone was there just before us and had dropped the rope down so they could park. So we took advantage of that and pulled in as well. The trail was only 2.5 kms (1.5 miles) round trip, and Whiskey had no problem doing it, including the 235 steps at the end. She seems much better now that she's not taking the incontinence medication.
This chunk of rock has been sitting like this for as long as anybody knows. It really is amazing that with all the big windstorms that come through here it hasn’t fallen over.
The view out our side window this morning.
We made it to the
ferry, but decided to not cross over until today. So last night we found a nice little spot in a parking area overlooking a fishing boat harbour. (GPS 44.26587 -66.32627). Nice spot for any size rig, although there were a couple of pickup trucks belonging to fishermen when we woke up this morning. Still lots of room though. It was really windy again last night, but not as cold. Not a cloud in the sky so far today, so it sure is nice to see the sun shining! Brier Island
Another short drive, only 75 kms (47 miles) or so.
