Dead end – May 23

This is part of a series that started with the post called “Roads – then and now (May 14)”. Each post in the series will describe each day what we had hoped to do on our ‘cancelled due to Covid-29’ trip to the Arctic Ocean in 2020 AND what we did do on our Cross-Canada trip in 2019.

Arctic Ocean:

This would be day 2 at the hunting site. By now, we would have seen moose, deer, bears (at a distance) and caught some fish.

Cross-Canada 2019:

One of our main ‘must-do’s’ was to visit the fjords in Saguenay, QC. It was a very rainy day and driving was not enjoyable. When we arrived, we found that the park was not open. We decided to find somewhere else to stop for the night and put this on our itinerary next time — but note to visit Quebec later in the year.

We stopped at a rest stop near Saguenay River which was quite nice, quiet except for a car that came racing through every few minutes. Luckily, he stopped that after a few laps.

Well, I guess one can’t expect every single day to be a success. But it does point out how handy it is to be ‘self-contained’. We have everything we need to keep us safe and warm. On days like this, we have cribbage and rummiukub to keep us entertained.
