Day 6: Troy to Halifax

As we were at a B&B last night, we were up early to get the first shot at breakfast, and to get an early start on the day. For some reason I thought we had a super long ride to Halifax ahead of us, but once checking the GPS, I realized we had a pretty decent ride, and had a lot of time to spare. That meant that we could check out Peggy’s Cove!

My bike near Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia

I had no idea what I was looking for when we started heading for peggy’s cove, so I stopped right here to take a picture of my bike in front of what I thought was the best landscape that we’d be coming across… I was wrong…

Peggy’s Cove, NS

What a sight! This picture alone doesn’t do it justice, but you kind of get the picture (no pun intended, as my dad would say). Anyway, we had a good time climbing the rocks and checking out the whole area.

Here I am standing next to the lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove

I couldn’t get the bikes into a good position for a picture, so you’ll have to take this picture of me next to the lighthouse as proof that we actually made it there. Yeah, that¬†silhouette¬†standing there is me.

While at lunch today, our server told us that her sister had been diagnosed with MS not too long ago, and then a few other people that we met at gas stations and also at Peggy’s Cove mentioned that they had siblings or relatives that had the same. They thanked us for what we were doing, and were happy to hear that we’ve raised over $12,000 so far for MS. Hopefully they’re reading this and will pass on what we’re doing to their loved ones affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand, it’s probably time for…

Monst at Peggy’s Cove

Monst decided to make an appearance at Peggy’s Cove!

Once we got to Halifax I met up with an old friend who took us to a local bar called The Maxwell’s Plum right in downtown Halifax. Best nachos I’ve ever had, and a massive selection of beers to go along with it (60 beers on tap!)

We also reached our 2000km mark as we wound along the road to Peggy’s Cove. 2000 out of 12,000 doesn’t seem like much, but it’s sure going by fast already!

Here are today’s points of interest:
