An update on the tire situation. Thanks to you, we got information on four sports stores on the islands and ended up purchasing a tire at a place called Véli Vélo. It is not a Schwable Touring tire but it is close enough in dimension and can be inflated to a high pressure. We will use it on Hélène's front wheel and if found suitable we will use her Schwable front tire as my rear tire. Once we get on the mainland in Nova Scotia, we will look into ordering a tire for delivery at the post office. So again thank you to all those that got involved to help.
It is hard to concentrate on the blog as we are listening to CFIM 92.7 radio bingo (plays at 6 p.m. on Saturdays and is bilingual)

In the first picture posted for Day 27 the caption said: "Waiting to leave to pickup the scooters. Far behind me is l'Ile d'Entrée". That is an error that should be "Ile du Havre-Aubert". We apologize for the error.
