Kouchibouguac, NB

Saturday August 8, 2009

The best way to see any park is to hike it, however, if one doesn't have sufficient time to see it on foot, a bicycle is the next best option. With that in mind, Carol and I, with Nicky tucked away in her basket, set off to see what else the park had to offer. The map from the visitor center was very helpful. We were able to pick and choose from an extensive list of sites that interested us the most. There were many to choose from, we couldn't possibly see them all, so we had to leave a few for the next time we pass through this part of the world.

We chose the longest bicycle trail. At about the 15 mile mark we came across a beautiful tepee in a giant green meadow. Inside there were low benches arranged in a manner that suggested it was used to give talks or hold meetings. Since no one was around and we didn't see any signs to the contrary, Carol got out the back pack and we had ourselves a fine little picnic.

By the time we got home, we had pedaled about 25 miles and were beat. Any ideas about getting the boat in the water were quickly dispatched. After a prolonged nap and another great Casita meal, we both felt revived enough to get the guitar out and play. The only songbook we have on the road is a Beatles compendium, so we sang along to our own version of “Baby's in Black”. Carol says I “Dylanize” everything, and laughs. “....Tell me oOh, WhAt can I DoO”.
