January 13 – We made it to the coast!

It was a long, long, long, long and uneventful drive to the coast. We left late last night to take advantage of empty roads. We made it all the way to northern New Brunswick by the morning. I only briefly got myself lost in Montreal, but it was only a 15 minute diversion, thankfully.

The one downside was that due to the exceptionally warm weather we encountered a lot of thick fog throughout the drive. It was especially bad in the Montreal & Quebec City areas, as well as the Truro & Halifax regions.

It was very quiet when it came to spotting any type of wildlife. I added one new species, the COMMON RAVEN. We saw lot’s of these, but little else.

The only mammal sighting was a single Porcupine up in a tree.

We decided that due to the nasty fog it was was a better idea to just stay over in Halifax rather than risking missing the ferry. So tomorrow I will be out scouting along the harbour for new species.

We plan to take the overnight ferry to Newfoundland, weather permitting!
