Carol and Glenn had quite the Thanksgiving! On Thanksgiving day they were portaging again due to wind gusts up to 50 km/hr! They came along a section of the highway that recently had been under-construction and found themselves in an unsafe situation! Thankfully, a good Samaritan stopped to offer assistance and also invited them into his home for Thanksgiving dinner with his family!
After this wonderful Thanksgiving weekend they found themselves being blown into Chapel Island home of the Potlotek, First Nations People. They had been feeling the affects of hurricane Nate! Below is a picture of Carol and Chief Marshall of the Potlotek First Nations People. They took very good care of Carol and Glenn offering them shelter, food and company in Chapel Island, Nova Scotia.
Below is a picture of Carol and Glenn and friends they made along the way enjoying Tea at Rita’s Tea Room in Big Pond Nova Scotia. Rita’s Tea Room, originally a one-room schoolhouse in the 1930s, was the first home of late Canadian singer-songwriter Rita MacNeil.
Only 2 more days left on the first part of their epic canoe adventure across Canada! Go Carol and Glenn!! Keep on PADDLING!
