Trip to Nova Scotia, Day 4

One more road trip day, and then we finally made it! We traveled over 1500 miles over the last few days, and we are looking forward to significant time out of the car as we visit friends and see the sights in Nova Scotia. Our trip into Bridgewater and New Germany included a GPS recommended side trip down 20 km of gravel road. Grr. But we did finally arrive at Peggys Cove and the Peggys Point Lighthouse (no apostrophes, not sure why), where our car “officially” crossed the entire continent (as did we). What? Well, Grandma Lula’s Buick started its life with us in Utah, it traveled to the edge of the Pacific in California, trekked the I-15 back to Utah, took us to Detroit, and now has taken us to Peggy’s Cove on the Atlantic Coast. Our little Buick has (over its lifetime) crossed North America! From Peggy’s Cove we made our way to the Dorey’s house in New Germany, where we will be staying until Canada Day.
