... Deadmans Pond (they have good names for towns, lakes and rivers there) to the little fishing village of Bay of St Lawrence. Sea is very rough at the man-made entrance to the fishing harbour in Deadmans Pond and it is very cold outside taking photos. Went back the same way we came then onto Capstick with views again of Acadian forest and homes as we climb up and down the mountainous rugged coastline on winding road over a one way bridge.

As we'd been a week without decent wi-fi (with privacy) we Skyped Cat's parents to have a chat and check all was well. We then made dinner around 6pm and had pancakes with Maple syrup for dessert.
