Ted's Big Perimeter Ride - Day 10




This day was a really long one. I got on the road at noon after the complementary breakfast. It was raining and I was glad that I could load the bike under the portico of the hotel. I did manage to get an ATM to render me some cash, so now I had a Loonie (Canadian $1 coin) for the bridge. I justify that since I crossed the bridge twice yesterday in under 10 minutes, that that constituted an UNDO operation, so no toll ws really due.

I was totally drenched upon arrival...7 hours from Halifx in lot's of rain wore me out. I inquired about staying an extra day to dry out (again), but there were no vacancies to be had. Another night where I was just too tired to do more that update the web splash page.

After having two rather wet days and not being able to update the site, I secured a Comfort Inn room in Sydney for two nights. Updating delayed once again.
