Where I stayed
Fog and drizzle were our companions through most of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. A bright spot was meeting a woman at the Ultramar on the Wentworth Valley Loop who had just gotten her motorcycle license, and is excited about getting on the road. We didn't stay long - blackflies were fierce.
A stop at Tim's before crossing the border offered us ample chat with a few seniors over coffee
The border guard appeared interested in the motorcycle convention I would be attending, but she was, in fact, inquisitive because of a patch on my jacket that she suspected might mean I am not the sweet, retired rider I profess to be. Our discussion convinced her I was a safe bet, and we crossed and headed to Brewer via the airline route. It was dark before we arrived at Vacationland Inn, but the route was direct and easy to navigate. Our room was small, but fine, and staff welcomed us heartily. Breakfast the next morning in their cafe included my favorite when traveling, waffles. They had homemade blueberry and strawberry sauce-yummy.
