Day 4, Part 2
After leaving Alma, I noticed a sign for Cape Enrage. I took the 915 (scenic drive) to get there, and it's a very nice ride. Cape Enrage road, is all gravel, but not a bad little ride. along the way i took a few pics of the bike on the rocky beach. Quiet and peaceful there, but still quite a bit of traffic on the gravel road, so i knew there was something up at Cape Enrage. At the end of the gravel road is Cape Enrage, which has the oldest lighthouse on mainland New Brunswick that was built in 1848. The whole site is run by students that raise the money by donations to keep the project going. Seeing a piece of history is worth the donation ($4). They also had a gift shop and a zip line.
I left there and hoped that Hopewell Rocks would be better than the Fundy National Park. The road going to Hopewell Rocks was a really nice ride.
I decided to walk down to the rocks instead of taking a ride on their shuttle service. I figured I don't do much excercise since i'm only riding, so i should be a bit more active. It was a nice walk down to the rocks.
note to self: next time use the shuttle on the way up
Leaving Hopewell, I followed the 114 towards Riverview/Moncton.
Along the way I noticed a Jet out of the corner of my eye. This was at the Hillsborough train museum. I would have liked to have gone to the museum, but it was closed. Odd to have a fighter jet there, but I took a pic anyhow.
Overall, the 114 was a nice road to go through is Hillsborough was a nice picturesque town.
I decided to slab it to the Confederation bridge as it was getting late and I wanted to be able to get a room in PEI somewhere. Wasn't sure where I was going to end up though.
