Our ride from Nova Scotia back to New Brunswick was good enough; weather was fair, traffic moderate. We arrived to our new friends place late, as the semantics go we were expected to arrive in time for dinner but instead we arrived in time for supper. What’s the difference you ask? Well out here dinner is lunch and supper is dinner, go figure. Either way we were happy to arrive and meet the family.
We had a great time and got to visit almost everyone of the ATV crew and their families.
For us, this was a good experience and the luxury of knowing people and the lifestyles and cultures of different areas is both refreshing and expanding. We were fortunate to stay in a house with an amazing cook and friendly people. Like any place that we stay if the opportunity to help with something, a chore or labour, is possible we’ll take it. The concept of contribution is important to me and any meaningful assistance we can offer gives us a sense of wealth. I was happy to be able to leave our friends with an operational technique that I hope they find laughably simple and exceptionally useful.
There was no shortage of good people around us and I wondered about the effect that has. It was a stimulating experience that I postulated might dull or be taken as normal with time, as is with most human experience of exposure. Fortunately and for those reading I have to say it was not lost to me and we enjoyed the time we spent with the folks in the Maritimes.
