Day 70/71/72 Southampton > Halifax (Nova Scotia)> Atlantic!

DAY 70 - Checked the route and decided to stay by the Saint John River all the way to Saint John a lot further but the only way through! The heat and the road prompted a change in plan. Not quite so many climbs this way.

Day 68 Grand Forks > Florenceville

Saturday set off with the sunrising and an incredible morning climbing for the first few km's then dropping down to the Saint John river. crossed the river in Perth and continued on a scenic route described in my guide as flat good road - they lied! Not the first time and it will be the first thing I launch into the Atlantic!
