Day 3 Newburne to Digby

It was a cold crisp morning so everyone gone by 7:45 to get up into the sun on the road and warm up.

9 degrees and brilliant sunshine. High 18 Not a cloud all day.

Hills were 9-14% for first 58 km until we crossed the mountain range that run downs the length of the peninsula. Then it was a long descent into the Annapolis valley with vineyards and lots of farms.

We stopped in Annapolis Royal at the 110km point for a rest from the relentless head wind, a snack and a tour of the tidal power generating station.

I learned about how tidal power generator works, that wind farms more cost effective than tidal generation, because there is always lots of wind in Digby area. So our 20-30 km/hr head wind should not have been a surprise.

Dinner was vegan chilli with a large variety of beans in it. From the sounds throughout camp during the night there were others whose stomaches could handle it less than mine.

Stats for the day

1624 m of climbing
