Day 35

The Magdalen Islands were not quite my idea of warmer climates — north of PEI. But it was nice here nonetheless; my pneumonia quickly lifted, and best of all, my hotel was down the street from a pet shop.

I was even able to convince one of them, Marcus, to come with me on the remainder of my journey.
