Woke up early as per usual. I don’t understand why I can’t sleep in on vacation. Seven o’clock? What’s that all about, anyway?

Our original plan was to go to the farmer’s market in Chatham, but the more I looked at the information about it online, the more I realized it was something we could skip and not feel like we were missing anything. Instead, I searched for things to do in Miramichi and came across a thing called Ritchie Wharf Park, which sounded interesting. The only problem was, Google Maps insisted it was closed and would not reopen until 10 AM on Monday. That made no sense to me. Why would a major tourist draw be closed on the weekend?

So, we decided to find out for ourselves. When we arrive there were plenty of cars in the parking lot, children playing in the wading pool and water feature and people milling around the grounds. Does any of this sound like it’s closed? Anyway, we parked and set out to explore the grounds and take a few pictures. Since it was now after noon and I hadn’t had anything to eat since breakfast, I checked out what was on offer at the poutine place. You may recall I sampled poutine for my first time only a few days earlier, but the description of their Canadian Bacon Poutine seemed rather appealing. Marilyn helped by nibbling on some of the fries and between us, we emptied the tray.

Fueled up the truck in preparation for our departure tomorrow, then returned to the cottage for the last time. I packed a few things in the truck so we wouldn’t have to do it all in the morning. Put a frozen pizza in the oven for supper, did a laundry, watched our series on Prime and touched based with a few people we want to visit on our way home.

It’s been a nice vacation spoiled only by PayPal glitches, but all in all, not too bad. I do have plans to post more to my blog in the coming year rather than wait for next year’s vacation. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who cares to comment.

  1. Glad it all worked out for you. I have come to the same conclusion. Google does not know everything. They know a lot, but places they say are open are actually closed and vice versa.
