It rained overnight, but was not raining when I started out this morning. It did rain just before noon, a bit, and cooled off too.
Just before I was to take the bridge over the Saulmon river to New Brunswick, I noticed there was a nearby town. Got gas and lunch, then off to Miramichi.
The roads were fine, if not at all up to the excitement of yesterday. In due course, I arrived here in Miramichi. We have friends who own and run a B&B here, and I stopped by to see them. Had a nice visit with them, then off to the motel (they were full).
At the motel, I asked at the desk about a restaurant. They have a deal with Mike's Bar and Grill. Whisper "Day's Inn sent me!" to your server and you will get a $6 steak, plus $1.50 for fries, plus $1.50 for additional veggies, if you want them. I did not feel all that hungry, but the flank steak was nicely cooked and the fries were piping hot. A veritable steal.
Back at the hotel, the desk lamp and the floor lamp were not working. Both needed new bulbs. Never had two bad bulbs in a room before, but now all is well.
Tomorrow, I will point the bike toward the Cabot Trail. I have no idea as to where I will end up. Today was a shorter distance, only 431.1 km says Mr. Garmin. That's good, as I am feeling a bit arthritic at this point. Time for an early night, I think. Oh, lost an hour due to time zone too.
No pics today. Rain and overcast and just boring trees on both sides of the slab. I am assured that this will change, weather permitting.
