Sleeping in until 9 is luxury when you're on the media circuit and lazing outside overlooking the bay with a coffee and a piece of toast confirms that it's the simple things that score. Boring takes on a whole new flavour on this hectic fast paced journey and we're greedy for any opportunity to sit back and diddle with our I Pads or read the paper. Soon though the phones are ringing for our attention. It's CBC Charlottetown wanting an interview. Afterwards, Gin and I are off to our massages, as usual with me driving the Starfish and Gin with the trusty Garmin, interspersed with the not so odd, "Jeeze Kerry", "Watch out", "For Christmas sakes", you get the idea. By pure chance alone we reach our destination and relax to the best massage yet so far on the trip.

Our next errand is visiting Laing House, a non profit drop in centre where the proceeds of last night's gathering were donated. Conveniently there is a tiny pub across the street where we sit in the shade and enjoy a lunch. We pick up our carbon steeds on the way home. The mechanic declares them good to go for the rest of the trip.

Alas it's time to part ways with one of our crew, the Keenan Dawg, who has done his tour and is getting on a plane to Calgary to see a concert. We brush off any sentimentality by affirming that we will see him in a month at the last week finale in Vancouver/Whistler, but it's not that successful. He's blood and no matter how different the personalities are, everything runs full circle, with family. We accept an invitation to dinner with Peter and Chris across the street, old friends of Darcy. Thanks all of you who made our Halifax stay a memorable and meaningful stop. Bravissimo Atlantic Canada!!
