Headwind slog to Nova Scotia

There wasn't a whole lot we could do to make today any easier. I wish I had a working power meter on a day like today to tell the whole story, speed isn't cutting it. It doesn't capture the sustained 20km/h wind right in the face, gusting to 30. The roads and traffic and sun and temperature were all quite good. This adventure has definitely made me a lot better at looking at the bright side of a situation. Any given day is exactly as good or bad as you think it is. New Brunswick was a great experience. I love the blend of maritime, French, and native culture. It's one of the few places it feels like those things are complementary instead of contrasting. I overheard grizzly old men talking and swearing back and forth between French and English today and was confused the whole time, but glad a place exists where that happens. The next week or so in Nova Scotia should be fun. It's pretty planned out until Sunday or so, and I'm looking forward to this weekend for some rest in Halifax.
