Gra Nomad Wanderings

We shoulda worn white! Here we are with Gerard and Maria (New Brunswick), getting into lobster and champers! Really good fun. Thanks guys.

Maria was an accomplice - took Fay to fabric and quilt places. Fay bought material while I photographed ideas!
This boardwalk used to be 2 km long. Now only 800 m thanks to storm on 21 Dec last year.
Fay of course had to paddle in the Atlantic Ocean (at least I think that's what it is.) It's the strip of water between PEI and NB.

Here is an old church - not really. It was built in 2004. Gorgeous. Looked like it was centuries old.

Here's Gerard working on the lobster. Did a great job mate. Also a good tour planner.
Stayed at the simple motel - MOTEL SUR MER. Yep, on the water. The St Lawrence seaway. In Canada... approaching Quebec City, so, cost $93 CA, and.....

...this fellow travelling pilgrim (cyclist) and the motel lady (not pictures), didn't speak English! Still a lovely spot and allowed us an easy start the next day into the beautiful old Quebec City (photos tomorrow). The cyclist (Patrick) and Fay and I were the only people at the motel. Lucky we got the seniors' price eh?
We have actually reached Newton, Iowa and will hole up here (like a mob of bushrangers) till things subside a bit. Do washing, catch up with Bryan and Marcia Thayer, eat ice cream etc.

Keep up the good work. Was the lobster an early birthday present for mum? Maybe that's what I'll ask for too
