The owner was very friendly, and the room was Clean, nothing to complain about. The "Cavendish Motel" is very close from the Ann of green Gable, the Avonlea Village. and the "North Rustico Beach, Prince Edward Island National Park" that i ride at sundown after dinner. so that motel is a great location.

After that I decide to visit the Ann of Green Gable museum. about 1 Km a way at max. I spend most of the afternoon. that visit will be covered in an other Blog post. the really wort it, but some influencers dress as Ann like clothes and dyed hair, was annoying by trying to get people to move to take there picture like the place was there own. except for that it was just a great visit.

Since I was about to adventure on the 108, with 135 km without gas station or rest area. between Renous, NB and Plaster Rock, NB. I will later realize that also I got Zero Cellphone coverage and the traffic is mainly heavy truck. the Asphalt was between good to rough but more then doable on a 900 LBs bike. It was a one lane with out shoulder to stop. one car stayed behind me the entire time never pass me. That was good so if something happen they can call at the next town.
