Anniversary Cycle

August 27th was our 30th wedding anniversary. To celebrate we left Antigonish and cycled 105km with 2,800 feet of ascent in the blistering heat to Whycocomagh on Cape Breton.  Hill followed hill and we sweated and drank our way through nearly 12 litres of water.  Even the Simpson 'family' turned out to help cheer us along as we wilted. 

Susan was completely overcome with emotion at realising she had managed to get through 30years being married to Clif.

We crossed the bridge at Port Hawkesbury and entered Cape Breton, ate a Mars bar and Marathon sandwich and pushed on with very tired legs. 

As it was our anniversary we changed the planned camping night for a motel. It wasn't a great motel but there was a wonderful little restaurant nearby that had been featured on the TV programme 'You Gotta Eat Here'.  The seafood chowder was outstanding. A good end to a memorable day.


  1. Happy Anniversary! It's strange I cry every anniversary too not sure why!!!
