Crossing The Bay of Funday Day 2 of 2

... of driving in near zero visibilty rain. Buzz's chain was in trouble too, I had to pull over again. I ducked under the bridge for Hwy102. I had no visibilty, my helmet was heavily fogged up. So much so that i loved the streaks of water that run down the inside of the visor, that removes the fog in its wake, so I can see. Things were also getting bad with the gloves, they were soaked.

The fog rolls in

A travel blog entry by kann2010


... took a lovely scenic drive that I’ve done previously on my one trip to Nova Scotia. Took about 45 minutes on the "not-freeway" to get to Lunenburg, the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way, the town of Mahone Bay is especially pretty with its 3 churches standing proudly on the bay.
